This is one muffin I have been wanting to try like since I have tried my hand at baking. For starters blueberries are almost quite an adventure to get here in Bangalore, if you do manage to get a can then it's like you have struck a pot of gold. My husband happened to go to Singapore on work and I had my devilish mind working, rubbing my hands in glee, simply thrilled at what he could bring me. Now that's when, my good friend Lesa just totally shocked me and surprised me with a whole bag of goodies from Singapore. From blueberries to raspberries,golden syrup to fancy muffin liners, to a pack of fresh vanilla hot chocolate, white chocolate chips.......it's a whole bag of baking goodies. I was overwhelmed at the sight of my goodie bag, totally enthralled at the stuff she bought for me and all I could think was - What did I do for her to deserve her bigheartedness and love?. It's something that is difficult to be comprehended. Never the less I got to baking my first batch of blueberry muffins and only wished that I could have given Lesa something to savor too. Lesa this is to you - I owe it to you...
