These blueberry muffins made with a cake mix are shockingly delicious, why?


Because they're semi-homemade and so easy to fool everyone they're not from a local bakery!


Sometimes if you're in a hurry, these little gems can be the perfect solutions to a quick breakfast or company brunch!


Blueberry Muffins with a Cake Mix is the easiest muffin no-fail ever!


I love muffins for breakfast, don't you?


Of course, when I do have the time, I certainly like my mom's homemade blueberry muffins, grilled blueberry muffins, and blueberry summertime homemade banana muffins or try something from my roundup of quick bread.


It kind of makes me feel like I am having dessert served for breakfast, but I like to tell myself they healthy because fruits are in them ( just joking)!


Scroll down and see this easy recipe, it's so easy I feel guilty calling it a recipe!

Suggestions:




These are a basic batter, so guess what?



You can add any fruit, how awesome is that?



If you dislike blueberries, chopped pineapple, apples, berries and peaches are terrific too.



The pineapple will need to be blotted dry, oops and I forgot even fresh cherries work great!



You can also make a cake with the blueberries instead of muffins.



Just pour the batter over the fruits of choice or blueberries and add the suggestion of streusel on top!


Lastly, you can sprinkle a little sugar on top for a pretty sparkle and the kids loved colored funfetti sprinkles!

No Crumbs!


The muffins are so moist, kind of fluffy and hold together perfectly!


Ok, you may have a few crumbs if you have messy eaters, but not like the ones made from scratch.



These won't make crumbs like most of the dryer versions homemade either another bonus right?



They're perfectly portable for people and kids on the go.



If you have kids like me, they're always up at the last minute and rushed.



Half of the time they're not ready to get going to their destinations.



My husband is, on the other hand, has an advantage, he is always up early and out the door first, he gets to eat them first!

Convenience




We just love to pack them up for long trips or they're perfect for lunch box treats, bake sales and whenever something comes up you are in a huge hurry to make something for someone special for.



It doesn't get much easier than this one!
