This is a good muffin to use whole wheat flour. I've made the recipe quite a few times and have substituted apple and peach for the berries. I've also made it using raw sugar. I like to bake my muffins a little hotter for a little less time, I think they rise higher.
Delicious blueberry muffins. My entire family loved them. The brown sugar topping is a must. I followed recipe and it made 12 regular muffins and 9 mini muffins. Not sure how that happened? Maybe because my 3 years old was helping me?!
Very tasty, and the brown sugar really takes away some of the blandness that comes with whole wheat baking....I cut the brown sugar down to just a small sprinkling on top of each muffin, maybe 2tsp total and omitted the cinnamon....very tasty muffin, will definitely make again!
JUMBO BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
3 cups (375g) all-purpose flour (very careful not to overmeasure)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eggs, room temperature preferred
1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
1 cup (240ml) milk*
1/2 cup (120ml) canola oil (or vegetable or melted coconut oil)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups (150g) fresh or frozen blueberries
coarse sugar for sprinkling (optional)
Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray your muffin tin of choice with non-stick spray or line with muffin liners. Set aside.
In a large bowl, gently toss together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until all dry ingredients are combined - a 20 second toss to disperse everything together. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugar until combined. Mix in milk, oil, and vanilla. Mixture will be pale and yellow. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix everything together by hand. Avoid overmixing. Gently mix until all the flour is off the bottom of the bowl and no big pockets of flour remain. The batter will be VERY thick and somewhat lumpy. Fold in the blueberries.
Pour batter into prepared muffin tins, filling all the way to the top. Top with a sprinkle course sugar, if preferred. Bake at 425F degrees for 5 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 and continue to bake for 25-26 minutes until tops are lightly golden and centers appear set. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in pan before enjoying.
Muffins taste best fresh the same day. Store muffins at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Muffins freeze well for up to 3 months.
