Blueberry Muffins



Mmmmm warm blueberry muffins to go with your coffee in the morning! I love fresh blueberries, they offer so many possibilities, and they are packed full of antioxidants. Two of my favorite childhood books also share a love for blueberries and baking, Blueberries for Sal & Panda Cake . Two darling children's books to treasure. What is your favorite "food" children's book?


•Makes one dozen

1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, softened. Plus more for your pan
2 cups of all purpose flour, plus more for pan
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups of fresh blueberries
1 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1/2 cup of milk


Preheat oven to 375˙ Generously butter your muffin pan and dust with flour. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat butter, sugar, on med/high until light and fluffy. About 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating until combined. Add vanilla. With your mixer on low add the flour mixture. Beat until just combined. Do not over mix. Add milk, again just mix until combined.
Fold blueberrues into your batter. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake until muffins are golden brown. About 30 minutes. Serve warm.




  1. I love blueberry anything, just turned out a blueberry recipe the other day and it was fab. And we are reading (repetitively) "The Best Mouse Cookie". Little C loves it. We think it makes absolutely no sense. But we're all about finding minutes of fun around here, so "The Best Mouse Cookie" it is! Again. And again.

    Happy New Year!

  2. These look great! My favorite children's book with a food theme is Pizza Man.

  3. Heather, I have never heard of Pizza Man. :)

  4. Blueberry muffins....yum yum! :) Kathy

  5. Blueberries for Sal is one of my favorite books of all time. My 5 yr old loves it too. His favorite food book is most likely Strega Nona or The Carrot Seed.
