Nutmeg Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Nutmeg Blueberry Muffins Recipe

These tender, easy-to-make muffins are loaded with juicy blueberries, and the crunchy topping has just the right hint of nutmeg flavor. We enjoy them warm with honey butter. —Colleen Belbey Warwick, Rhode Island
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Combine nutmeg and remaining sugar; sprinkle over the top.

Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
