Blueberry Muffins - Andrea Meyers

This weekend we’re leaving for our annual vacation to the family camp in the Adirondacks. We’ll enjoy a week of fishing, hiking, and playing at the lake, as well as some good family cooking by Michael’s mom. She fixes these for us every year when we visit and it’s rare to have any left after breakfast, especially with my boys there!

large mixing bowl
medium bowl
#20 scoop
12 cup muffin tin, lightly coated with nonstick spray


1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup (118 mil) lowfat or skim milk
1/4 cup (59 mil) canola oil
1-1/2 cups (180 g)  flour, sifted
1/4 cup (44 g) sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, rinsed and well-drained
cinnamon and sugar mix


1. Preheat oven to 400° F/200° C.

2. In the large mixing bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk and oil.

3. In the medium bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add to egg mixture and stir just until flour is moistened. Batter should be lumpy. Do not overmix. Carefully fold in blueberries.

4. Use the scoop to fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mix. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.


For larger bakery style muffins, fill only 8 muffin cups.

    Was that right about 3 Tablespoons of baking powder?I made these today, but only added 3 teaspoons of baking powder. They turned out fine. They were not as sweet as I’m used to, but they were delicious. Thank you for your great recipes.

    The Adirondacks are my home! My son, Nick and I have just penned our first book, “Adirondack Nightmare: A Spooky Tale in the North Country” and it has three original Adirondack recipes in it. It’s geared for 3rd-5th graders, I’m not sure of the ages of your sons. You sound busy, enjoy your vacation…the weather’s been beautiful :-)
