Blueberry Muffins


These delicious muffins -- bursting with blueberries, and with crunchy, sugary tops -- are perfect for breakfast or with coffee any time of the day.

  • Yield: Makes 6 large or 12 small muffins

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July/August 2000


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for tins
  • 3 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 3/4 cups blueberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter large (3 3/4 inches) or small (2 3/4 inches) muffin tins, and set aside. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg, egg yolks, and vanilla; mix until well combined. Reduce speed to low; alternate adding reserved flour mixture and milk to mixer, beginning and ending with flour. Remove bowl from mixer; gently fold in berries by hand. Divide batter among muffin tins; sprinkle generously with sugar. Bake until light golden, about 45 minutes for large muffins, about 30 minutes for small muffins. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove from pan; transfer to wire rack, and let cool completely.

    These were a bit of a let down. The muffins were kinda bland.

    Great recipe. Tender cake. I used a frozen mix of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries straight from my freezer. My toddler helped and we had lots of fun.

    The bitter taste is most likely from the aluminum in the baking powder. Ever since I bought aluminum free, I don't have that problem anymore. I hope this helps :)

    loxling-You are suppose to use Baking Powder not Baking soda. Maybe that was your problem? Going to try these. I have about 9 gallons of blueberries to get through.
