"Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Do you know the muffin man?
Who lives on Drury Lane?"
I may have never known the muffin man but I do know how to make these Blueberry Muffins.
I'm a big fan of the classics and a solid blueberry muffin is a great staple to have in your recipe repertoire. The recipe is so simple and easy. I love when I can have a homemade treat that tastes delicious and can be eaten within the hour you start making it. They're sweet but won't give you cavities, and tart but wont make your lips pucker. They make a great addition to a brunch or a perfect little gift to box up and give. I found these pastry boxes at target and some cheap bakers twine at hobby lobby. Most of the people that I gave these muffins to didn't walk away with just one in their tummy. Enjoy!
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Blueberries
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Almond Milk
1/4 Canola Oil
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
yeilds six large muffins
Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray muffin/cupcake pan evenly with a non-stick spray.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set Aside.
In a large bowl crack the egg and whisk with the sugar until just combined. Add in the canola oil, vanilla extract, almond milk and whisk together. Pour the flour mixture into the wet mixture in three equal parts, whisking after each addition. Do not over mix. The batter will be on the thicker side.
Fold in the blueberries gently with a spatula. Pour the batter into your cupcake/ muffin tin sprayed with non-stick spray. I poured mine until the top of the cup and this made a large muffin, you can pour the cup half way for a smaller muffin (believe me, you'll want the larger muffin!).
Place in the middle of the oven and bake at 425F for five minutes and then turn the oven down to 350F for an additional twenty minutes. Note: everyone's oven is different so your cooking time may vary. Place a knife or a toothpick inside the middle of a muffin, if the knife comes out cleanly they're finished. Wait about ten minutes and you've got yourself a delectable warm muffin!
