Baking: Blueberry Muffins


I've had some blueberries in the freezer that have been calling to me.  Last evening, while Kyle and I were home alone together, I had him help me whip up a batch of muffins. 






The recipe is easy and delicious!

From Sally's Baking Addiction - Sparkling Jumbo Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients - 

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (very careful not to overmeasure)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, room temperature preferred
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk*
  • 1/2 cup canola oil (or vegetable or melted coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • coarse sugar for sprinkling (optional)
Check out the directions on her blog.

As you can see I didn't use the coarse sugar for sprinkling on the top of the muffins.  I used buttermilk as she suggested and for oil I used avocado oil.  They taste delicious.  I think the next time I make these, I will try 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to see how I like that.  Oh, and I made the regular cupcake size muffins rather than jumbo sized.  They go further around here that way.

  1. They look delicious!! And your assistant chef is adorable! (Kyle is getting to the age where "handsome" might be a more acceptable adjective...so don't tell him that I think he's adorable.) Love his apron! :)

  4. You have a very cute kitchen helper. I love blueberry muffins and yours sound delicious. I just froze 14 bags of blueberries for the winter yesterday. More to pick today. They are so lovely in midwinter.
