These old fashioned blueberry muffins are delicious, soft and fluffy. They make a great breakfast or snack and are moist and flavorful. Muffins are one of my favorite past times and make me feel a little sentimental. I have fond memories of my dad making muffins on Sunday mornings. I LOVED muffins. My favorite muffins were huckleberry. We used to go hiking and spend hours picking them at the end of each summer. Now I no longer live in the mountain west, so huckleberries are hard to come by, but blueberries are a very very close second. I use a similar recipe to what my dad used from an old cookbook and I love seeing my kids' excitement when they get up and I'm washing blueberries for blueberry muffins. Our favorite way to eat them is with some cut up fruit and scrambled eggs, but they're also good plain.
how to make old fashioned blueberry muffins:
These are pretty straightforward and simple to make. Start by washing and drying the blueberries. Next, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a medium sized bowl. Whisk lightly and set to the side. In a different bowl add the milk, eggs and melted butter and whisk.
Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and mix by folding. Fold using a fork. Start from the bottom and fold up and over the top. Fold 5 times then add the blueberries and continue folding. Be very careful not to over mix. Over mixing will cause tough, pointy muffins. Folding slowly and carefully will prevent over mixing.
Pour into a lined muffin tin. Bake at 375* F for 18-25 minutes. The muffins will be just starting to turn golden. A toothpick inserted into the middle should come out clean. Enjoy your old fashioned blueberry muffins!Print
