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 blueberry muffins for us every year when we visit and it's rare to have any left after breakfast, especially with my boys there! We sit around the table and nibble on muffins, bacon, eggs, and whatever else Grandma Meyers whips up.
The recipe makes smaller, traditional sized muffins. For larger bakery style muffins, fill only 8 muffin cups or increase the recipe by one half.

From Ann Meyers, from an unidentified old cookbook.
Servings: 12 muffins
- large mixing bowl
- medium bowl
- #20 scoop
- 12 cup muffin tin, lightly coated with nonstick spray
- 1 large egg (beaten)
- ½ cup low-fat milk
- ¼ cup canola oil
- 1½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour (sifted)
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup blueberries (rinsed and well-drained)
- cinnamon and sugar mix
- Preheat oven to 400° F/200° C.
- In the large mixing bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk and oil.
- 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.
- Use the scoop to fill greased muffin cups ⅔ full. (For larger bakery style muffins, fill only 8 muffin cups.) Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mix. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.

I love blueberry muffins, Andrea, and haven't had any in months!!
These look delish!
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.
Um, that would be 3 teaspoons of baking powder! Thanks for catching that, Carolyn!
Oh man. I'm pregnant and this totally gave me cravings. Jerk (I mean that in the nicest way possible)! =P

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 🙂
Hope you took a lot of these to camp. They look really delicious...bet they go fast.
Welcome to the Daring Bakers, too.
