Whenever I have some spare time, my favourite thing to do is bake!  Since I get so many requests for recipes, I thought I would share my favourite recipes on my website.  I do like to experiment too, so I often do my own variations of these, so feel free to ask me whenever you see my social media food blog.  Understand though, (disclaimer here) that I am an amateur baker and this is simply a hobby for me.  Bon appetit!

Best Blueberry Muffins

By Jennifer Segal

Servings: 12 muffins

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Total Time: 45 Minutes


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 2-1/4 cups fresh blueberries 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (also called raw sugar or demerara sugar)


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Spray the pan and the liners with non- stick cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl and beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract and almond extract. (The batter may look a little grainy -- that's okay).

  4. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with the milk, beating on low speed to combine. The batter will be very thick. Add the blueberries to the batter and fold gently with a spatula until evenly distributed. Do not overmix.

  5. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin (an ice-cream scoop with a wire scraper works well here); they will be very full. Sprinkle the turbinado sugar evenly on top of the muffins.

  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, until lightly golden. Let the muffins cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin to free it from the pan if necessary (the blueberries can stick), then transfer the muffins to a rack to cool completely.

  7. Freezer-Friendly Instructions: The muffins can be frozen in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag for up to 3 months. Thaw for 3 – 4 hours on the countertop before serving. To reheat, wrap individual muffins in aluminum foil and place in a preheated 350°F oven until warm.
