Bodacious Blueberry Muffins
I found the absolute best recipe for blueberry muffins! I made them Sunday morning for breakfast and my family devoured them. Ryan even raved over them and said that I need to make them again and again, so you've got to give them a try!
1 stick UNSALTED butter, softened
1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 t salt
2 c flour, divided
2 t baking powder
1/2 c buttermilk (can use regular)
1 pint fresh blueberries, rinsed, patted dry (can use frozen)
2 T white sugar
-Cream together butter, sugar, and salt until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Mix together 1-3/4 c flour and baking powder. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk-do not overmix. Crush 1/4 of the blueberries and stir into the batter. Mix the rest of blueberries with remaining 1/4 c flour, and fold into batter. Scoop into paper-lined muffin cups, 2/3 full. Sprinkle tops with sugar (or cinnamon sugar Ü). Bake at 375 for 25-30 mins, or until golden brown and tops spring back when lightly tapped.
-Makes 12-16 muffins
