New Recipe: Blueberry Muffins – Now Habersham

When I think of muffins, it brings back a song I learned in kindergarten, The Muffin Man. Do you remember?

Do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man.
Do you know the muffin man,
Who lives on Drury Lane?

The song or rhyme was written in 1820 in England. At the time fresh foods, including muffins, were delivered door-to-door by a muffin man.

The rhyme appears to have spread to other countries in the mid-nineteenth century, particularly the US and the Netherlands.

I’ve been waiting but no muffin man has delivered any muffins to my house so I think I’ll turn to my niece, Jennifer’s recipe for blueberry muffins. They are great for breakfast, lunch, a snack, or dessert. Plus, your kitchen will smell divine while they are baking!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbls. flour
  • 1 and ½ cups blueberries
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbls. butter, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 scrapes lemon zest

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare muffin pan with liners or spray.

Combine 2 c flour, 2 t baking powder, and ½ t salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, sprinkle 1-2T flour over blueberries, toss, set aside.

In a large bowl, beat ½ c butter with ¾ c sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, stir in vanilla, and zest. Fold in dry ingredients alternately with milk. Fold in blueberries. Spoon into prepared muffin cups.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

While muffins may not be the healthiest treat in the world, there are some health benefits that are associated with blueberries, which can make you feel a bit better for indulging.

In fact, a lot of people consider blueberries to be a superfood. This is because they can help with weight loss and healthy digestion, promoting the feeling of being full. They can also improve your mental health, protect against heart disease, assist with diabetes management, lower blood pressure, improve skin health, and help with maintaining healthy bones. Pretty impressive, right? Who would’ve thought that something so small would be able to pack such a powerful punch of nutrients?
