Blueberry Nutmeg Muffins
One of my favorite parts of the summer is the farm fresh produce and native blueberries. Here in Southern New England, we have an abundance of pick your own blueberry stands around RI and we have been been helping ourselves to handpicked berries for just $2 per pint. Fresh berries are what inspired these Blueberry Nutmeg Muffins and all the other blueberry recipes to come this and next week on the blogs.
I have made so many blueberry muffin recipes over the years, but never once did I think to sprinkle nutmeg over the tops. Brown sugar, and cinnamon crumble was my go-to crumble but the nutmeg sprinkle I used today was inspired by the two custard pies I baked earlier this morning. I was definitely in the baking mood despite temperatures soaring to 94 degrees today. It really is a good thing that I am one of them always cold people!
Anyhow, the blueberry nutmeg muffins follow my standard blueberry muffins recipe with the exception of as sugar & nutmeg topping. You can make them rather quickly too with ingredients you are likely to have on hand.
Here is the recipe for blueberry nutmeg muffins:
- 1 1/2 cups of blueberries (I increased it this time)
- 3/4 cup of white sugar + 1 tablespoon for topping*
- 1 tsp nutmeg for topping*
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 stick of softened butter
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- pinch of sal
Pre-heat over to 375 degrees
Prepare 18 standard-sized muffins liners
Combine the eggs, sugar, and butter well. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and milk; mix with a wooden spoon.
Slowly fold in the blueberries, and mix until all the ingredients are combined. The batter will be thick, but workable.
Use an ice cream scoop to fill your cupcake liner 3/4 way. I made 18 muffins but this could vary depending on which size muffin tin you use.
Sprinkle with the sugar and nutmeg topping
Bake for 17-20 minutes. The tops should be springy, and not wet.
These muffins can be frozen so make up a few batches and enjoy them on days when you do not have enough time in the kitchen to cook up a tasty treat.
