Blueberry Cornbread

(muffin? muffin..muffin? Muffin? MUFFIN!)
Of all of the food that we made during our week long family trip, the blueberry cornbread was by far Keira’s favorite, even if she never learned the distinction between cornbread and muffins.  Every morning she’d ask for a muffin and we’d have to hide these until she ate the more nutritional part of breakfast first.

The rest of the family loved the cornbread too.  But they probably preferred the caramels! Fortunately, Keira never got into those. I shudder to think about what that much pure sugar would do to a 2 year old.
