Jordan's Blueberry Muffins

School is back in session! The kids were as excited as expected to head back to school. For the first day of school, I decided to back some muffins. The last couple of years I have made scones for their first day of school so it was a nice change. When asked, my daughter requested blueberry muffins. I recently saw this recipe so I figured I would try them. For the number of blueberry muffins I have made, I think it is apparent my daughter loves blueberry muffins. My children told me how much they liked these muffins. I thought I've made better ones in the past. Also, I have never tried the Jordan muffins before so I cannot tell you if they taste like the original ones. This is a quick and easy recipe to try.
Famous Department Store Blueberry Muffins
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
2 cup Maine blueberry 
1/4 cup fine sugar, for topping

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time. Scrap the sides when necessary.
  5. Add the baking powder, salt, and vanilla. Combine until incorporated.
  6. Add a little flour and then a little of the milk. Beat until just incorporated. 
  7. Mash 1/2 cup of the blueberries. Gently fold in the blueberries and the mashed blueberries.
  8. Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter into the prepared muffin tin. 
  9. Sprinkle a little of the fine sugar on top of the batter. 
  10. Bake the muffins for 30 minutes or until the muffins are light golden brown. A toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean.
  11. Allow the muffins to cool slightly and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
