Very Blueberry Muffins

Its been a while since I updated, mostly because I haven't really been baking or eating out much, but here's the recipe for very blueberry muffins. (taken from some recipe books/sites but with my own twist on some things.)



Very Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are probably one of the best muffins that I personally enjoy eating. This tender, moist version is really extraordinary! The recipe calls for a sprinkle of sugar at the end for a crunchy, sweet top which is something I neglected to do, but even without the sprinkle, it tastes great as breakfast or a snack throughout the day.


INGREDIENTS
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
0.5 - 1 teaspoons kosher salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus 2 teaspoons for topping muffins
1 stick of butter, melted
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 large eggs (I have small eggs, so I ended up using 3 small eggs)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (i just dropped in as many blueberries as I thought wasn't overload)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Place cupcake liners in you muffin pan. Butter the wells if you don't have cupcake liners (I find cupcake liners work the best) Set the pan aside.
  2. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl to break up lumps and aerate mixture; set aside.
  3. Whisk together 3/4 cup of the sugar, butter, cream, eggs, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl until smooth. Add sugar mixture and blueberries to flour mixture and stir until just evenly mixed (a few lumps will remain), about 30 strokes. (Do not overmix; the batter should be thick, but the ingredients should be evenly incorporated.)
  4. Fill the muffin wells completely and evenly sprinkle remaining 2 teaspoons sugar over top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Set the pan on a wire rack and let muffins cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and serve.

p.s. Christina! I'm looking for that recipe but I think my mom threw away my paper copy :( Will get it to you as soon as I can.

    aw so cute and delicious looking! i'm currently on a somewhat vegan mini diet, no sweets allowed, but as soon as that's over, I must try to make these muffins! And no worries about the cake recipe :)
    All the cakes/brownies I made a while ago disappeared before I took pics, but they weren't that pretty anyway :P and I made new cupcakes today!
