Looking for something to do on a rainy day?
Why don’t you bake muffins? Blueberry muffins!
They are super easy, yummy and perfect for breakfast or as a snack. They can be frozen for another day or enjoyed immediately, still warm, and slathered with butter… or given as gifts…what friend wouldn’t just love a dozen of freshly baked muffins?
So why don’t you get out your muffin tins and get going!
Print this recipe From the Joy of Cooking – All About Breakfast & Brunch
makes 12 muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder (aluminum free)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs (don’t fret if you don’t have ‘large’ eggs – use what you have)
1 cup milk (or cream – you decide the richness)
2/3 cup cane sugar or light brown sugar (try not using white sugar)
4 tablespoons warm, melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1.5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
Here’s what you need to do;
Grease or line with paper/silicone muffin cups for 12-cup muffin, standard muffin pan…
Whisk together in a large bowl;
flour (2 cups)
baking powder (1 tablespoon)
salt (1/2 teaspoon salt)
Whisk together in a seperate bowl;
eggs (2 eggs)
milk (1 cup milk)
sugar (2/3 cup light brown/cane, white if necessary)
butter (4 tablespoons warm, melted butter)
vanilla (1 teaspoon)
Add ‘wet’ mixture to the ‘dry’ mixture, until just blended, moistened. Don’t over mix – batter should not be smooth…add the blueberries (1.5 cups), gently…
Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Careful not to overfill or underfill – nearly to the top, without going to the top…Sprinkle brown/cane sugar on top.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in a few muffins, comes out clean…
Let cool 15 minutes on cooling rack before removing.
Serve warm, with butter or as is…
enjoy the weekend!
(and the muffins!)
these look amazing! I love your photography! I also love how your berries didn’t sink to the bottom 🙂
Thank you so much!! They are super yummy – the more butter and cream, the moister they will be…(: Also, thanks for the compliments on the photography! I love taking pictures, glad you liked them too! (: Hope you had a good weekend!
I knew I shouldn’t have looked at this post before breakfast. Now I want blueberry muffins! 😀
I love the transfer station as well – I’m hoping to get the tiles for my kitchen there becuase they’re always getting over-orders delivered (it’ll save me a lot of $$$) 😀
I am sending you good tile ‘vibes’ … you will find just what you need, and then some – I know it!! (: Hoping someone will delivery you a dozen blueberry muffins!! (:
Can’t wait to try this! I put frozen blueberries in my cereal this morning and was thinking that I needed to make something to use the last of them before time to pick comes around again. This recipe will be perfect and tasty. Congrats on getting the “print recipe” gadget to work!!
Hopefully you like the recipe! Thank you for acknowledging the ‘print this’ – It is so much fun when I figure out how to do something, only to realize it wasn’t that difficult after all – it’s finding the time to ‘learn’ (especially with our dial-up internet connection!!) which is the challenge…glad you like it!! There is so much more I want to learn how to do on this blog…all things in time, right? Hope you had a good weekend!
