Wild Blueberry Muffin Tops

by Laura

This recipe for wild blueberry muffin tops comes straight from the Betty Crocker website. I do like to use their muffin mixes and the wild blueberry muffin mix is one of my favorites. It is my daughters favorite blueberry muffin.

When I saw this recipe, it made me think if a Seinfeld episode about muffin tops. I have included a condensed You Tube version of the episode. It specifically addresses where they talk about the muffin tops.

Now according to Elaine, this is not the correct way to make a muffin top. The perfect muffin top comes from the actual muffin. According to her, you’re suppose to pop the top and dump the stump. But if you watch the clip you’ll see that this caused a dilemma.

This is a fun and different way to make this muffin mix. My family loved them. To me they were more like a muffin cookie. Kids seem to like anything that’s a cookie, so if needed, tell them it’s a muffin cookie. Either way you’ll like these wild blueberry muffin tops. Serve them for Valentine’s Day breakfast with eggs and bacon!
