simple blueberry muffins

Hi everyone, today I´m sharing my simple blueberry muffin idea .. A simple blueberry muffin recipe that is really easy to make ... 

It´s always quickly done and  I´m sure, you too will love it´s delicious taste. You can also make this recipe beforehand and even freeze the muffins. You just have  to thaw these a couple of hours before serving and mind you, these can also be served warm. Simply heat them for 1 minute in the microwave at 600 watt.  So that it would look more delish, add a teaspoon of blueberry marmalade  and whipped cream  on top of each muffin before serving.
