This is just one of those, plain as the nose on your face ideas that after you try it you wonder why haven't I ever thought to do this before?! But tonight, after wanting blueberry muffins for two or three days, I decided to make some to have with some coffee, only to find I had no blueberries! Fresh, frozen, canned, or other wise! What I did have was a just add water Betty Crocker blueberry muffin mix with artificial blueberries in a bag! So, I thought what do I have that can make these better? I came across a can of blackberry pie filling in the pantry and thought, would this be good?! I had to decide whether to stir it in with the mix, or to add a dollop in the center of the muffins? I decided to add a dollop in between two layers of the prepared batter. I didn't have to add any sugar because the pie filling is sweet a plenty. I just baked them according to the package directions and out came muffins fit to eat! YUM!
Of course, now I have to try them home made with different fruits! Give it a try!
