Blueberry Muffin

Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man;
Do you know the muffin man,
Who lives in Drury Lane?

Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
the muffin man, the muffin man,
Yes, I know the muffin man,
Who lives in Drury Lane

The nursery rhyme which we all must have sang in our childhood. While making a batch of these wonderful bread (Muffin) these lines came to mind? 
When I was a child I would have not even thought of actually making these. 
I tried these out with blueberries which has a great nutritional value. Its rich in manganese and helps in 
reducing cholestrol too.
