Sweet New England Blueberry Muffins


We always get 10 or 20 pounds of blueberries every July. We use a lot for eating and baking (like this delicious blueberry crisp!), but then freeze the rest of them.

Here is one of our favorite blueberry recipes for a special treat. I grew up in New England, and this has been a favorite recipe since I was a kid.

Sometimes I make the batter up at night and then bake them in the morning.

We always fix a special birthday breakfast for family members on their birthdays and this is often one of those favorites.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I always have!

  • ½ c. butter
  • ¾ c. granulated sugar ( You can cut the sugar to 1/2 c. if desired)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 c. flour ( I use freshly ground whole wheat, but you can use white or part white as well)
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ c. milk
  • ¾ c. blueberries
  • cinnamon and sugar

Cream butter and sugar.

Add eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, and milk; mix thoroughly.

Fold in blueberries; don’t stir more than a few seconds, or the batter will turn purple!

Grease muffin tins. Fill ¾ full.

Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of each.

Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. YIELD: 20 muffins.
