Last week I showed you how to make the best Lemon Muffins froms cratch! Well this morning, I had my first bowl of berries. My friend had already cooked a batch of blueberries, but I thought we might make something with the rest of the berries. For the last hour, we’ve been making muffins, and I always save the last batch for blueberry muffins and a few cupcakes.
I like to change the ratio of dry ingredients to liquid, and to make up for that with more fruit, I use a little less milk than I would like. My first attempt for this recipe had a recipe to make a dozen muffins, but the only time I have blueberries is in the spring and summer, which is when I use up all the berries I have left.
Instead of berries, here’s a great blueberry muffin recipe for you. It calls for blueberries, raisins, and cinnamon. I served it for breakfast and thought I’d share it with you!
Blueberry muffin recipe ingredients
½ c. white sugar
½ c. all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. kosher salt
½ c. (4 oz.) fresh blueberries, fresh for spring, dried for winter
4 c. milk
¼ c. unsalted butter, melted
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar and flour until combined. Stir in butter and salt.
2. In a large bowl, using your hands, mix together blueberries, milk, and melted butter. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until mixed.
3. Spoon batter into paper baking cups (I made 12). Place in a greased muffin pan. Bake at 375º for 28-30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking.
There are many different variations of this recipe. Here’s one of my favorites: I add chopped pecans on top.
This is a very old recipe. In fact, my grandmother used to make these (with raisins) back when I was a child. I will add this to the list of things I never had when I was little. This will be added to in my favorite Christmas list if I ever get to have one.
I’ve never thought to add raisins to my blueberry muffins (I’ve always used dried fruit in them). So, I think my version would taste less sweet and more like a fruit cake. This would be my perfect blueberry muffin recipe!
