Updated: Aug 27, 2021


1. ½ cup softened butter

2. 1 ¼ cups sugar

3. 2 eggs

4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5. 2 cups flour

6. ½ teaspoon salt

7. 2 teaspoons baking powder

8. ½ cup milk

9. 2 cups blueberries, washed, drained, and picked over

10. 3 teaspoons sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 375.

2. Cream the butter and 1 1/4 cups sugar until light.

3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.

4. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder, and add to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk.

5. Crush 1/2 cup blueberries with a fork, and mix into the batter. Fold in the remaining whole berries.

6. Line a 12 cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners, and fill with batter. Sprinkle the 3 teaspoons sugar over the tops of the muffins, and bake at 375 degrees for about 30-35 minutes.

7. Remove muffins from tin and cool for at least 30 minutes. Store, uncovered, or the muffins will be too moist the second day if they last that long.
