Bursting Blueberry Muffins

Here is my tweaked version of a recipe I found on  I have tried many different blueberry muffin recipes and this is my favorite.  It tastes most like a bakery muffin to me.... I'm taking these on my Thanksgiving trip.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/14 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup turbinado sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease (REALLY GOOD) muffin pans or use paper liners.

In a large bowl, cram butter and 1 1/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time- blending between each addition.

Mix flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Add flour mixture, alternating with milk.  Mash 1/2 cup blueberries and stir into batter.  Fold in remaining blueberries.

Fill muffin cups and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.  Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.  Remove from oven and wait 20 minutes to remove from muffin pans.


  1. I cannot wait to try some of these recipes, I'm thinking that is what this weekend will consist of! We talked about inspirations tonight and I'm not sure I told you that you are definitely one of mine, one that encourages me to try my hand at this whole domestic thing and I'm so excited about the possibilities! I'll let you know how it all turns out!
