Nova Scotia  Blueberry Muffin Recipe


Note From Mr Breakfast:

A great breakfast lover from Nova Scotia named Susan wrote in regarding the index finger myth (see below) saying:

"I was bred, born and raised here and have never ever heard of this index finger thing. We are famous for our rolling blueberry barrens and are one of the worlds largest exporters of wild blueberries, and have been known to make use of our fingers for eating lobster in particular. Not to mention the use of one in particular to communicate certain feelings but I am sure that is a universal signal known far and wide. I would be fascinated to find the source of this myth, as I'm sure there are other gems of the sort to be heard."

If anyone knows the source of this myth, please send me an email. Thanks for the great letter Susan.

Original comment:



One myth states that in Nova Scotia, people are only allowed to eat muffins with their index fingers.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank kj727 for this recipe.

The texture was lovely but the buns were not sweet enough. Very easy to make. Will make again but with added sugar or perhaps brown sugar in addition to the white.
