Buttermilk Blueberry Muffins

(originally made 7/2008)

In anticipation of bringing home some blueberries from my parent's house yesterday, I wanted to use up the last of my store bought berries.     This recipe was very simple to put together, and baked up very nicely.    Some of the other reviews mentioned an "odd" texture, but it isn't offputting to the flavor or anything.   

I had to do a little switching of ingredients, I had fat free buttermilk and light blueberry yogurt.   I used a cookie scoop to portion out the batter into the cups, and I always sprinkle the tops of any muffins with raw (turbinado) sugar before baking, gives them a nice little crunch and sparkle.

*** Editing to add, on day 2, I do see more of the texture problem mentioned by reviewers.   Almost rubbery.   Still taste good, I split mine and toasted it.
