Makes 12

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Fresh Blueberries 
  • ¼ cup melted Unsalted Butter
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • Cupcake wrappers
  • Cooking Spray

Preheat Oven to 375ºF (For a Crispier Muffin Top preheat oven to 400ºF)

In a bowl, combine a couple tablespoons of flour with the blueberries (flour comes out of the 2 cups of all purpose flour we are using for this recipe! Do not use any extra flour!) Give this a quick stir and set aside until you are ready to use it.

In a large bowl, sift the rest of the flour, with the sugar, baking powder and salt. To this mixture add in the zest of one orange, stir together and set aside for a minute.

Whisk the milk, with the egg and the melted butter, whisk until well combined. Then pour this mixture into the flour mixture and stir until the dry ingredients are well incorporated with the wet ingredients.  Do not over-mix!   Slowly fold in the blueberry mixture until well combine with the rest of the batter.

Line your cupcake pan with the cupcake wrappers, spray them with cooking spray, then pour the batter into the pan. (make sure not to overfill the pan with the batter otherwise the muffin tops will run into each other!) (Feel free to sprinkle extra sugar over your muffins before baking them!)

Bake at 375ºF for about 25-30 minutes or until cooked.

For a crispier Muffin Top bake at 400ºF for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked and golden brown.

Once they are done, transfer them to a cold surface, let them cool and enjoy!
