Baking || Classic Blueberry Muffins

IMG_1369

I found this recipe a few years ago when I was just craving a really good blueberry muffin one night. This recipe is really simple to make and delicious to eat.

 

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

3/4 cup of granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/3 cup of applesauce or coconut oil (The original recipe calls for vegetable oil here, but I always substitute with one of the above.)

1 egg

1/3 cup of milk

6 oz. container of blueberries (around one cup)

Baking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder. I put these in my stand mixer and start combining. 
  3. . Place coconut oil (or your replacement) into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries.
  4. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with the optional crumb topping mixture (see below).
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.

Notes:

  • I use a 12-muffin pan and get a full dozen. If you make larger or smaller muffins, then the quantity will be different, but equally as delicious.
  • This recipe could also work with other types of berries.

Optional: If you want to make a bakery-style muffin, you can add on this crumb topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
