These have actually become a staple for us year-round. I know it is crazy to buy the boxed mix when I could so easily make them from scratch. But when we’re juggling two careers and three school-aged kids (during the academic year), and/or when we’re chomping at the bit to get to the beach and not spend any-more-time-than-we-need-to in the kitchen (at the beach house), this cheater muffin is our go-to how-to.
The only thing I do different now is that I double the batch (to make 24 muffins), using a full whole pint of fresh blueberries. And I also use a lot more cinnamon (including sprinkling lots of cinnamon on top of the muffins, with the sugar, before baking).
