JIFFY BLUEBERRY MUFFINS    
Delicious, moist, fluffy muffins made in a jiffy.  Be sure to give the variation a try as well.  Sometime when I feel creative I'll make this again and take a nice pic of the trifle all dressed up! (Jen)

Variation:  Jiffy Blueberry Trifle:  This seriously tastes like a little piece of trifle heaven.  While the cake-like muffin is still warm, sprinkle with 1 to 2 tbsp (15 to 30 mL) heavy cream, OR Low-Carb Milk, page 282, Low-Carbing Among Friends, Volume-2, OR page 18, Low-Carbing Among Friends, Volume-1.  Now sprinkle some semi-defrosted blueberries all around the plate and over the muffin.  (1 serving of 2 based on using 1 tbsp (15 mL) cream and 2 tbsp (30 mL) extra blueberries for trifle: 244.8 calories; 6.7 g protein; 20.1 g fat; 7.8 g carbs)

Helpful Hint:  My microwave oven is a Panasonic Inverter – 1200 Watts.  Your cooking times might vary based on the wattage of your microwave oven.
