Best and Easy Blueberry Muffins!

Happy New Year, dear readers!

I have no idea why I thought really good blueberry muffins might be somewhat elusive. They’re not. And, amazingly, this recipe slightly adapted from Joy of Cooking, are incredibly fast and easy! You don’t even need a mixer! Here are the ingredients and what you do.

Preheat oven to 400°. Then grease a 12 cup muffin pan. I use butter.

In a large bowl whisk together:

2 C. all-purpose flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

Measure out 1 1/2 C. blueberries. Sprinkle with sugar and set aside until ingredients are mixed.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together:

2 large eggs
1 C. heavy whipping cream
2/3 C. sugar
1 stick melted unsalted butter
1 t. vanilla

Add wet ingredients to the flour mixture, mixing gently only until the the dry ingredients are moistened. You are not seeking a well mixed batter.

Now, using a wooden spoon, fold in the blueberries. Do not overmix. Do only what is needed.

With a large spoon, fill each greased muffin cup. This might feel a bit awkward at first. Use your best judgment. You won’t be disappointed.

Bake 15-20 minutes. I stick a salad fork into the top of my muffins to test for doneness. Note that electric ovens tend to need the lesser time; gas ovens tend to need a bit more time. Timing can also be affected by whether the blueberries were fresh or frozen.

Pull from oven. Allow to cool before removing from muffin tin. Serve when cool. You can also easily freeze and use gradually. I nearly always have some in my freezer!


So easy, right? Enjoy!

Love and kitchen blessings,

Book News: I am loving this quote I pulled from the script of Romance is a Bonus Book (on Netflix). “A book may not be able to change the world, but I’m sure it can still leave something warm inside.” It is my fondest wish that Plant Whatever Brings You Joy: Blessed Wisdom from the Garden leaves something warm inside. Many thanks to those of you who bought copies during the holidays for your loved ones and who have contacted me directly letting me know you have loved the book. So lovely to hear.

  1. That does seem easier than I thought it would be. I’m guessing the sugar and limited mixing helps keep the blueberries from turning everything purple, an easy mistake to make. Looking forward to trying this! <3

  2. Hi, Antonia, Yes, absolutely. Using a big wooden spoon to fold in those berries makes all the difference. And minimum mixing! Enjoy! Love, Mom xoxo
