Fruit Explosion Muffins

We love muffins. If you come to our house on a Wednesday to visit, you will find our Mama lovingly baking muffins for her kiddies. Every Wednesday she has a freshly baked batch of muffins, waiting to cool, just for us. Lately a new kind of muffin has appeared on the Wednesday muffin tray, one that we call:

Carole's Fruit Explosion!  Tim Hortons used to have a muffin that we loved called Fruit Explosion. It was a muffin jam packed with all kinds of berries. Our Mama decided to make her own version of the Timmy's muffins. Carole's Fruit Explosion is a spelt muffin full of berries that burst in your mouth. It reminds us of summer days, of berry picking and warm weather.

3 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 cup of  frozen blueberries
