    blueberry-muffins-optimized
    Few days ago, I decided I want to bake something tasty. I actually bake quite a lot, but usually it happens at night, and I cannot take pictures of it. I know muffins don’t take a lot of time, and they are super tasty. And I also had some frozen blueberries, that I handpicked myself this summer, so why not to have a little taste of summer in my muffins? Plus, everyone who bakes muffins probably know, that they are kind of moist inside, and I wanted to bake something a bit more special, so these blueberry muffins has a special cookie like crusty topping.

    1 cup milk

    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar)

    ½ teaspoon salt

    ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
