Blueberry Muffins

I can’t believe that I have not posted blueberry muffins on here. I love blueberry muffins and think everyone should have one good basic recipe; this one is a great basic blueberry muffins recipe.

As I started writing this I realized that I have not posted here for a week, time just flies. I have no idea where this week went. I was so busy with trying to get my yard organized for summer, my regular work, putting together midsummer celebrations, and life in general, that I had no time to post. But during the week I did make blueberry muffins with ricotta. This recipe you can use sour cream, yogurt or ricotta for your muffins and they turn out great with any of the variations. Even during busy times I somehow always have time for cooking.

I hope everyone had a great midsummer weekend.

Blueberry Muffins

Adapted from: Brown Eyed Baker

Yields: 12 muffins | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time 25-30 minutes

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
1 cup granulated sugar
4 tbsp (2 ounces) unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1¼ cups sour cream, plain yogurt or ricotta
1½ cups fresh blueberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a standard 12-cup muffin tin (or line with paper liners) and set aside.

Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl untill combined. Whisk the egg in a separate medium bowl until well-combined and light-colored, about 20 seconds. Add the sugar and whisk vigorously until thick, about 30 seconds. Add the melted butter in 2 or 3 additions, whisking to combine after each addition. Add the sour cream/yogurt or ricotta in 2 additions, whisking just to combine, and then add the lemon zest.

Add the berries to the dry ingredients and gently toss just to combine. Add the sour cream, yogurt or ricotta mixture and fold with a rubber spatula until the batter comes together and the berries are evenly distributed, 25 to 30 seconds. Small spots of flour may remain and the batter will be very thick. Do not overmix.

Using a large spoon or a cookie scoop sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, divide the batter amount the muffin cups. Bake until the muffins are light golden brown and a toothpick or thin knife inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating the pan from front to back halfway through the baking time. Immediately remove muffins to a wire rack and cool for at least 5 minutes. Serve immediately or at room temperature. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.

    You always make baked goods more appealing. Whenever I find several muffins, blueberry is always my first choice. Yours look much much better than what I normally eat. Delicious!

    Just thinking about these! Yours look so moist and chockful of blueberries! I was reading a pastry book by the former chef at the White house, and he says he beats the egg whites separately for these.
