Quick and Easy Berry Muffins

So…this is how I woke up this morning. 😦

Swollen pretty much shut.  Bright red.  Itchy.  It’s awful.

For the second time in a week I had an allergic reaction to some eye drops…two different kinds of eye drops.  My autoimmune ravaged body is really starting to get on my last nerve. 

Before the allergy attack I did do some baking.

Along with Mama L I still haven’t let any real sugar touch my lips in almost 3 full weeks now.  I have had a smidge of splenda and stevia but not on a daily basis.

Other people do have to eat though so I have gathered up the strength to bake…twice.

Once for fathers day…Papa L wanted mini pecan pies.

And then again to make these easy blueberry muffins.

These would work with any summer berry too.  Recipe at the end of the post.

Hope y’all had a good week and have a great weekend. 🙂

Quick and Easy Blueberry Muffins

1 box Yellow Cake Mix   I used my homemade version.

1-2 cups Blueberries

1 tsp Baking Powder

2 tbsp Flour  I used Cup4Cup.

2/3 cup Milk

1/3 cup Sour Cream

3 Eggs



Preheat oven to 350* and spray or line pan.

In a medium bowl mix together cake mix, baking powder, and flour.

Make a flour ‘well’ and add milk, sour cream, and eggs.

Mix it altogether and carefully fold in blueberries.

Fill greased or lined muffin cups 2/3 full with batter.

Bake at 305 for 10 – 15 minutes depending on pan size.

I made mini muffins and got 24 mini muffins out of a half batch.

  1. Oh no! My friend is actually allergic to the drops they use to dilate your eyes, and her reaction lasts a week. I hope your reaction gets better soon! The blueberry muffins look delectable. I was expecting to see a blue-er tint from the batter. Hope you feel better soon and get to enjoy the first day of summer!

    • Thanks, Kaila. The eyes are a little bit better today. I was surprised with the blue color too. I made half a batch so I used 1 heaping cup of frozen blueberries. The color must of have baked out. But they were eaten so it must not have messed with the flavor.
