A Golden Recipe

Blueberry muffins are some of my favorite type of dessert. But lately I haven't been able to get that "perfect" blueberry muffin that fitted my taste buds. That changed. I did a search for jumbo blueberry muffins in google and found this recipe. Wow, they are so good. I read that to have moist muffins you should leave lumps in the batter when mixing. I did that, underbaked these a little and they came out perfect! I had them when they were first warm and they were good but had another one when they were cooled off and they were ten times better. So, if you need a good blueberry muffin recipe, give this one a shot - I gurantee you - you won't be dissapointed.

"Bluelicious Blueberry Muffins"
INGREDIENTS:
3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup blueberries
1 3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup melted butter (room temp) or oil
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease JUMBO muffin pan. In large bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk, eggs and oil. Mix until flour is not visible. Make sure there are lumps in the batter. Do not over beat. Add blueberries. Bake for 30 minutes or until top springs back and is golden brown. Yield: 2 dozen JUMBO muffins.
**I baked my jumbo muffins for about 20 minutes and they were perfect**

They do look delicious! I'm always lazy and use cupcake liners when I bake. But your muffins look like they are deliciously browned. I'm going to have to stop using the liners!

Oh yummy! I freeze blueberries in season and make these in the winter months, just spread them on a cookie sheet till they freeze and place them in a plastic freezer bag. As taste of summer when the snow is falling :)

They look perfect inside!

My favorite blueberry muffins were form Jordan Marsh when I was a kid. It was a Boston department store that had their own bakery. No one has been able to recreate them.

Just wanted to share with you that I made this recipe, but used mangoes instead of bluberries and made it into a loaf. Mmm, it's really good! I liked it so much, that I even wrote about it at justbaking.com and to share on my blog. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!
