2. Now add in a bit at a time: 2 cups of flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt.

3. Next, add in: 2/3 cup milk, 1 cup of blueberries

4. Mix everything to make a nice batter. I do this by hand, it’s easy.

5. For the top you will need: turbinado sugar, some sliced almonds, nutmeg.

6. Pour the batter into muffin liners and sprinkle w/ the almonds, nutmeg and raw sugar (I think the nutmeg is what makes these muffins so good).

7. Bake in a 375F oven for 23-25 minutes until puffed and golden.

8. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack.
