Blueberry Muffins - Canadian Style

A couple of years ago we spent a romantic Christmas in British Columbia, Canada, driving to the small ski town Whistler. We stayed at this cute Bed & Breakfast a little outside of Whistler, the Inn at Clifftop Lane (see also my post about the B&B here). The inkeepers were very accomodating towards an early arrival, the bed & breakfast itself adorable with a jetted hot tub in the room, and the breakfast delicious. Just a perfect memory.

However, there was one little thing that stood out: Their blueberry muffins that they had for breakfast. These were freshly baked, moist inside, but very crispy on top, like a cookie. Very delicious. I got in contact with the inkeepers and they were so friendly to share their recipe.


  • 1 1/2 cups un-bleached flour
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 pound ( 113 grams ) melted unsalted butter or equal margarine
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries 
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar 


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit (175 degree Celsius).
    2. Mix all the ingredients for the batter together, except for the blueberries. Then, fold the blueberries gently into the batter.
    3. Pour the batter into 10-12 large sized muffin cups.
    4. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, till golden brown on top and till a tooth pick that you stick in the middle comes out clean.
    5. Let cool for a little bit and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

      Breakfast at Godot

      Today we went for some light brunch in our neighborhood in Prenzlauer Berg. Our uncle Michael and our friend Andy were visiting. We found this cute little corner café "Godot". The menu wasn't too big or fancy, but the sandwiches delicious and the atmosphere great. The name also has a nice ring to it... Breakfast at Godot :)

      Note: "Waiting for Godot" is an actual play from 1953 about two characters that are waiting endlessly for the arrival of Mr. Godot. During the entire play they do not end up meeting him. One of the possible interpretations of the play is one that the existentialists hold. They assert that conscious reality is very complex and without an objective or universally known value. The individual must create value by affirming it and living it, not by simply talking about it, waiting or philosophising it in the mind. In "Waiting for Godot" the main characters show an endless disappointingly illusion of the waiting with a tragic helplessness.

      Street Food Berlin

      A couple of weeks ago my fiend Nick sent me a link to a new kinda thing happening here in Berlin, called "Street Food". I had already almost forgotten about it, but funny story, after going to the movies at the Kulturbrauerei yesterday we stumbled across an advertisement poster of the "Street Food" event, happening right here, basically in our backyard.

      It had just started this year and shall happen every second sunday. It basically is a bunch of food carts offereing diverse food options, from Polnish food, over "Flammkuchen", "Raclette" and tons of Burger options, to even a Brasilian and a Spanish food cart.They had a good variety of food choices, however, prices were high and portions small, but understandable as these are no food carts on every day basis as I have experienced in Portland.

      We had some of the flammkuchen, a raclette sandwich, some cider steak bread and a burger. This all was accompanied by some good German beer. Even though it was nice to be able to do all this outside, it still is winter and we soon were so cold that we decided to go home. I will definitely give it another try during summer time :)
