Blueberry Muffins

Hi everyone! I recently made these pretty little muffins for our July 4th BBQ, and they came out moist and delicious. These are so easy to make, and fun to modify. I cut the sugar by 1/3 cup since some of the elders have high blood sugar levels, and the sweetness was still perfect for me. Also added a bit of lime zest since I didn’t have any orange juice on hand. The hint of citrus flavor makes a huge difference I think, but I would still prefer orange juice in the future. Hope you guys can try out this recipe, and definitely let me know how it goes!

Also wanted to give you all a heads up that I’m currently in Boston for the summer, so look forward to a lot more posts as well as exciting reviews on yummy eats I find here~will get the Boston series started soon! And here’s a completely unedited picture of the muffins, so you can get a better sense of the coloration and everything. I’m so happy with how the liners coordinate so well with the blueberries, teehee. Now on to the recipe:

Blueberry Muffins

 

Ingredients
375F, 25-30 min. Makes 12

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, soft
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • orange/lemon zest, orange juice

Preheat the oven and get the muffin tins ready. Cream butter till smooth, then mix in the sugar and incorporate. Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, salt and mix. In a separate bowl, mash 3/4 of the blueberries with a fork and add into the batter. Then add 1/2 the flour, mix, 1/2 the milk, and alternate until all added in. Fold in the remaining blueberries by hand. In separate bowl, mix 2 tbsp sugar with cinnamon (or just use cinnamon sugar if you have it). Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle on the magic touch-cinnamon sugar, and bake. Let cool and enjoy! Delicious warm and fluffy, or even for breakfast the next day.

    If you are able to buy fresh picked blueberries it can make any blueberry recipe even more delicious! It’s blueberry season in New England through August- enjoy!
