These muffins were one of the first things I ever posted on this blog. They are my absolute favorites. I’d been wanting to make them again for a couple of weeks, but I just wasn’t feeling blueberry or chocolate chip.
I found these cinnamon chips at the grocery store on sale, I’d never seen them before so I figured I’d try them out. It was a nice change from the norm, I love all things cinnamon.
I can’t believe I’ve had this blog for over 6 months now. I look back at those first pictures and cringe! I’d grown a lot thanks to honey & jam. I can’t wait to see what the next 6 months bring!
My Favorite Muffins
1 stick salted butter, room temp
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups blueberries/strawberries/chocolate chips/etc.
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup of milk
1-2 tbs. raw sugar, optional
preheat oven to 375 degrees, line a 12 cup muffin pan with papers ( i like to make 6 jumbo muffins, i couldn't find my papers this time though!)
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, toss the blueberries with about a tablespoon of the flour mix. (this works so well to keep the berries evenly distributed through the muffins.) Set aside.
Using the paddle attachment on an electric mixer, beat the butter for about a minute, then add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy (i love fluffy butter.) Add the eggs one at a time, making sure it's well combined before adding another egg. Then mix in the vanilla extract.
With the mixer on low, alternate adding flour and milk. Beat until just combined. Don't over beat! Lightly fold in the blueberries (or whatever) using a rubber spatula. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups.
Then I put a sprinkling over raw sugar on the top, it gives it a nice shine and crunch.
Bake for about 30 minutes, until the muffins are golden-brown. Stick a toothpick in there, and if it comes out clean, you're good. Put them on a wire rack and let them cool for a few minutes, eat em' while they are still warm. with a glass of milk. or coffee. or any beverage of your choice. enjoy!
