July 11th is National Blueberry Muffin Day! This fruity baked good is always a crowd favorite.
Muffins were first introduced in the 18th century in England, as a bread. The popular muffin today in America was adapted to be a quick bread, like a miniature cake. As the recipe continued to adapt, flavors like blueberry became extremely popular. In fact, in 1988 the blueberry muffin became the official muffin of Minnesota.
