Simple Blueberry Muffins
There’s nothing fancy about this muffin – it’s mostly flour, eggs, butter and blueberries. But that’s the beauty of it. It’s the perfect sort of baking project to tackle on a lazy weekend morning.
- 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, well beaten
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup blueberries
- 3 tablespoons flour
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups with a little butter.
- Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.
- Combine eggs, milk and melted butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Do not try to beat until smooth because the muffins will be tough and grainy.
- Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of flour over blueberries, and turn to coat well. Stir into batter, mixing just enough to combine.
- Fill muffin cups about two-thirds full.
- Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until muffins are brown and pull away from the sides of the tin.
