Muffin Porn

My attempts at making muffins usually fall flat, leaving me with
deflated spirits and a pan of dense, doughy blobs better suited to
bricklaying than breakfast. But yesterday the feeling of fall was in
the air and it had me craving something hot from the oven, so I
summoned my courage and gave muffin baking another try. This recipe from Good Things Catered promised results that "don’t go anywhere but up"—persuasive words indeed! And they didn’t disappoint…

With muffins the way they look is as important as the way they
taste. And these little beauties turned out so nicely that not only did
I eat two with my coffee, I took about a billion photos of
them. "Show me love, babies!" I shouted as they posed seductively on
the plate.

This recipe really does rise to unparalleled heights of
awesomeness. So load up those muffin tins with confidence. And take a
big bite to discover that beneath the golden dome of perfection lies a
moist, tender crumb and lava-like pockets of blueberry. Katie at Good
Things Catered calls these "Sunday Morning Muffins", but "Supermodel
Muffins" is an apt description as well.
