All About

Blueberry Muffins

Whether you’re eating them on the go or serving them up at brunch, blueberry muffins are a classic, and for good reason. But they’re also infinitely adaptable: Add bananas for a flavor twist, use whole wheat or bran to increase the nutritional value, or double the blueberries. Whichever recipe you choose, consider doubling it: Blueberry muffins disappear quickly (and freeze well).

recipe

This blueberry muffin recipe, from "Martha's Entertaining," features two options for topping: You could always try both, but if you plan on making the crumb topping, prepare that first. Alternatively, sprinkle granulated sugar and freshly grated mace, an aromatic spice made from the outer webbed shell of a nutmeg, over the batter just before baking.

recipe

Toss the blueberries in flour before adding them to the batter; this will allow them to suspend evenly through the muffins instead of sinking to the bottom. Fold the berries gently into the batter to avoid turning it blue. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
