breakast :: a blueberry muffin recipe


as i mentioned before, we have a serious muffin fascination around here. and given that we have finally begun to see spring and the summer fruit is on the mind, we're thinking about our favorite muffin. the classic. the most well-loved. the blueberry.

here is our favorite blueberry recipe. try it out and let me know what you think! and stay tuned for good muffin making tips!

BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
Best with fresh bloobs, but do what you have to do.

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

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tin cups with paper liners. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

2. Fit your mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar on medium until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add egg, egg yolks, and vanilla; mix to combine. Reduce speed to low and add some of the flour mixture, then add some of the milk—alternating until done. Make sure to begin and end with flour. Gently fold in berries by hand. Pour batter into muffin tins and bake until light golden, 20-25 minutes. Cool the muffins in the pan, on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan; place directly on the rack, and let cool completely.

YUM!

These sound wonderful and that is a great site. I like using the wild blueberries, too. But then all blueberries are good, aren't they! :)
