Double Blueberry Muffins

Published by at 12:45 pm under Cooking at Home,Desserts

Once in awhile, it’s nice to bust out the KitchenAid and make a nice batch of sweets! Due to an impulse buy at Costco, I purchased a big box of fresh blueberries. I love to just snack on them, but I didn’t want to have a blueberry overdose. So I thought it would be nice to make some blueberry muffins. I relied on a recipe from The Food Network for Double Blueberry Muffins. It sounded perfect because I wanted to add as many berries in there as possible. I think it turned out pretty good, considering my friend Cecille couldn’t resist eating them! Hehe.

Cream 1 stick of softened butter in the mixer until smooth. Then add 1 cup of sugar and mix. Add 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 tsp baking powder, and 1/4 tsp salt and mix.

In a shallow bowl, mash 3/4 cup of fresh blueberries with the back of a fork. Add to the batter and mix. With the mixer running at low speed, add 2 cups of flour and 1/2 cup of milk (a little bit of each at a time).

Fold in another 1 3/4 cups of blueberries by hand until well mixed. Then, fill the muffin tins (here I used silicone muffin cups) to 3/4 full. Sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on top and bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.

Be sure to let the muffins cool at least 30 minutes before biting into them. It's nice to have fresh blueberries on hand! Be sure to make some of these muffins when you get a chance. They will make your heart smile.

    Mmm delicious. You could make them TRIPLE blueberry muffins and stud some candied ones on top :D
    Oh boo now I want morning tea and I have no double blueberry muffins lying around.

    Blueberry is my favorite muffin!

    The hardest part of this recipe is trying to wait 30 mins after baking to devouring them all!

  12. meganon 04 Feb 2010 at 8:28 pm

    these look delicious! i love the smell of fresh muffins coming right out of the oven. they may be hot but i just can’t resist gobbling one or two down right then ;)

    Andy – good point, but when we ate them before the cool-down period, we noticed they tasted kinda doughy, or like flour. Best to let the muffins settle in and get all yummified. They are great the next morning with coffee!

    Those muffins look so tasty! The last time I ate fresh blueberries was this last summer when someone told me that eating them would send me into labor. It didn’t work, but the berries were still delicious! I need to go buy more fresh berries! Thanks for the idea and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    I just baked them and they look fabulous and I am sure they will equally be delicious!
