Since Maine is a big producer of blueberries, several of the Maine recipes I came across included blueberries. So, naturally, we had to have some blueberry muffins on our Food Tour while in Maine.
This recipe came from the Swan House Bed and Breakfast in Camden, Maine.
They were super easy and super tasty!
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups fresh blueberries
cinnamon/sugar for topping
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
With electric mixer, cream butter and sugar
beat in eggs, vanilla, and milk.
The wet stage of this recipe came out kind of strange for me. I almost tossed it and started over because I thought I messed up a step or something. I didn't have enough eggs to start over, so I just kept going and they turned out wonderful. So, if the wet ingredients don't seem right to you, if you followed these directions, it'll turn out great.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients by hand (not mixer). Stir until all ingredients are incorporated. Fold in blueberries.
Fill lined muffin tins to the top. Sprinkle tops with 1/3 tsp. cinnamon/sugar mixture (the original recipe says to bake, then brush tops with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar. I just did it before baking instead). Bake for 27 min until tops are lightly browned.
If you can stand it, wait until cool before stuffing in your face. And, if you're like my son, you'll think these are great dunked in milk.
