Blueberry Muffins

Last weekend, I was craving some good old fashioned blueberry muffins for breakfast. I couldn’t believe how expensive blueberries were at the grocery store, but I bought them anyway. I’m just in that funk I guess, where I’m tired of winter dishes but the fresh summer fruits and vegetables I’m craving aren’t quite here yet. I have big plans to start shopping at the farmer’s market in a couple weeks though, where I can stock up on local, fresh produce that’s incredibly cheap compared to the grocery store. For now though, I’ll savor every bite of these blueberries!


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a muffin pan with cooking spray. Whisk together the butter, milk, egg, and vanilla extract in a small bowl until well-combined.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, sugar, and salt.

Add in the milk mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the blueberries.

Pour the batter into the muffin pan. To make the topping, blend the butter into the flour using a pastry blender until crumbly; then add in the sugar.  Sprinkle evenly over the batter.

Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Serve warm.

  10. I adore blueberry muffins. Blueberries are my absolute favorite food on earth, and just so happen to only be available here in the frozen state and beyond my price range. Utter sadness. Nevertheless, these muffins look divine, and oh, how I´d love to have breakfasted with you today!

  14. Thanks for sharing a great and very easy recipe. I made them as soon as I saw your post. The didn’t last long. In fact, I don’t think any of my baking has ever moved so fast. The whole dozen was gone in less than an hour! Wish I had one now for my morning coffee!

  15. Blueberry muffins are THE favorite around here. Come to think of it, blueberry “anything” is a favorite. LOL.

    Tracy, I just started a pretty strict calorie counting diet, so it looks like we can’t be friends anymore. Ah, I’m kidding!! We can still be friends. I’ll just devour calories virtually when I’m here. 😉

  22. I made these muffins with high hopes because your recipes are always so good! I think the crumb topping proportions are off? I thought it was a bit much flour when I was making it but did it anyway trusting that it would work out. The flour on the muffins weighed the muffins down so much that they didn’t rise. I had perfect blueberry muffins with tons of uncooked flour on top. Gross. What happened?

    by Mikelle Hembree on Oct 18, 2012 at 1:32 pm

  23. Mikelle – I’m sorry the topping didn’t turn out for you! Without seeing them come out of the oven, it’s hard to tell you exactly what went wrong – but if it seems to you like there was too much flour on top, you can do one of two things: either reduce the flour by half, or double the amount of butter, and tweak it from there. Hope that helps!
