Blueberry Muffins

I have a love hate relationship with blueberry muffins. They make your house smell like heaven when they are baking, they are good for you, they are small and bite size sort of, and with a pat of warm butter they are divine. Ok, so I don’t really hate anything about them. Besides that fact that I don’t really enjoy blueberries. But I really want to like them. So I make these muffins for my honey because he LOVES them! They make him so happy—which makes me happy too ;)

blueberries dusted with a touch of flour (that way they don’t clump all together)

Sift all dry ingredients together…

Mix all wet ingredients separately…

Combine wet with dry along with blueberries. Only mix until blended…over mixed muffins will be like a dry biscuit…no good.

Place in greased muffin cups or liners….note to self, get new muffins tins…these bad boys have put in their time…need to retire!

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons baking powder

1/2 cup sugar

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

1 egg, slightly beaten

3/4 cup whole milk

1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

1/2 cup granulated brown sugar or white sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and sugar. In another bowl, combine butter, egg, and milk and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and with a spatula, stir until just combined. Do not beat or over mix; it’s okay if there are lumps in the batter. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.
Spoon the batter into the muffin tray, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with the granulated brown or white sugar and return the muffins to the oven to bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before turning the muffins out.
