Old-Fashioned Blueberry Muffins

AT the end of the summer years ago, our family often gathered to pick wild blueberries. Mother canned them and saved them for special pie treats during the holidays. If there were any leftover she made them into these delicious blueberry muffins. —June Morris, Water Mill Long Island, New York

    6 muffins


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Solid recipe, but a little bland....needed maybe more sugar or a little zip. Another reviewer mentioned lemon juice or lemon extract....that may have amped it up. Was good, but not my favorite blueberry muffin recipe.

    I loved the muffins And the next time I made it I made in a loaf pan and it was great too Next time I'm going to try putting raisins instead of blueberries.

    Lovely, simple flavor. Best the day they are baked, a bit tough the second day. Would make again. They also won a 2nd place ribbon in my local fair!

    they taste great. though i was out of vanilla, so i put a tsp of lemon juice in instead. still tasted great. i dont know though, they almost seemed too dry or something, but had excellent flavor, i thought.
