Blueberry Muffins

Minnesota Blueberry Muffins


  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh Minnesota blueberries
  • 3 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. freshly grated orange peel

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and 1-1/4 cups sugar until light. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each.

Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add dry mixture to the creamed mixture, alternately with the milk. Crush 1/2 cup blueberries with a fork and mix into batter. Fold in remaining whole berries and add orange peel.

Fill large muffin cups (use paper liners or grease cups). Sprinkle tops with 3 teaspoons of sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes before removing.
