Sourdough Blueberry Muffins



There is nothing better than getting up early on a Saturday morning, sitting down at the table, to enjoy a homemade Blueberry Muffin, straight out of the oven, with a hot, steaming cup of coffee and looking out the window at the lake....of course, it would be perfect if the lake wasn't still frozen and covered with snow...but it's still a beautiful morning:)





This recipe is another wonderful recipe from the cookbook "Simply Sourdough ~The Alaska Way~ by: Kathy Doogan. This recipe uses a sourdough starter to make blueberry muffins~ Who doesn't like Blueberry Muffins:) I used my Jumbo Muffin tin to make these delicious muffins. Want to make your own sourdough starter and begin making your own sourdough goodies?

Sourdough Blueberry Muffins~
1 cup sourdough starter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t grated lemon zest
2 cups flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen*

In a large bowl, stir together starter, oil, water, egg, brown sugar and lemon zest. Stir together flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon; stir into sourdough mixture, just until combined, do not over mix. Gently fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into a greased jumbo size muffin tin*. Fill cups about 2/3 full. Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes. Makes 6 jumbo muffins.
*Note: If using frozen berries, do not thaw before folding in. *Muffins can be made in a regular muffin tin, yield 12.
