Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 12
  • 8 Tb. unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 c. + 3 TB. sugar (reserve the 3 Tb. to top the muffins)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ c. whole milk (or buttermilk, or evaporated milk)
  • 1½ c. blueberries (mash half, or use all whole berries)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a 12-muffin tin with paper liners (or spray with baking spray).
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter then add 1 c. sugar and blend until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Add vanilla.
  4. Sift flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet mixture, a little at a time, alternating with milk, until just combined.
  6. In another bowl, mash ½ the berries.
  7. In yet another bowl(!), mix whole berries with ½ tsp. of flour and toss to coat.
  8. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, mix in mashed and whole berries until just combined.
  9. Spoon batter into muffin cups until almost full. Sprinkle with 3 Tb. reserved sugar.
  10. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
  11. Remove from oven and allow to cool before removing from pan.
After removing the muffins from the muffin tin, leave them uncovered to avoid moisture forming on the tops and losing their crunch.
