Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries

  • After Baking:
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted

  • Sugar Topping Mixture:
  • 3 Tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  3. Add the melted butter, egg, and milk and stir just until moistened.
  4. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries.
  5. Spoon into well-greased muffin pans or use muffin cups. Fill each about ¾ full.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, just until lightly browned on top.
  7. Remove from pans and brush tops with melted butter.
  8. Sprinkle with the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.
Notes
Tip: Rinse the blueberries and lay them out on a paper towel to air dry before adding them to the batter. If they are still damp, blot them gently with a paper towel. Otherwise your batter will end up with a blue tint from the excess moisture of the blueberries and there will be too much liquid in the recipe.
