Bonnie's Blueberry Muffins Recipe

I combined a favorite yellow cake recipe with a muffin recipe to come up with this light, sweet muffin when we first opened the restaurant in 1980. At that time, we were the only ones int he area who served muffins. Now many restaurants feature homemade muffins, but somehow my blueberry variety has always remained a favorite with our guests.—Bonnie Ebenhoeh, Heritage House, Chesaning, Michigan
