Little Z, my 6 year old, loves blueberries! He enjoys eating them straight from the container. The rest of us, not so much. But we all love blueberry muffins. This was my first attempt at homemade – normally I use the dry mix. I am proud to say these turned out great! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! Next time, I will double the batch.
Old-Fashioned Blueberry Muffins
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (if you like less blueberries use 1/2 cup)
In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, milk, butter and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
Fill 6 greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
