  • cups sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups blueberries rinsed, drained and dried
  • cup coarse sprinkling sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Prepare two 12-cup muffin tins by adding paper liners. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, beat sugar and butter with a hand mixer until well combined. Add eggs one at a time, blending in between additions. Mix in vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, sift 2 cups flour, the baking powder, and salt. Add to butter/sugar mixture a little bit at a time, alternating with the milk, using a wooden spoon and making sure not to overmix.
  • Using a fork, crush ½ cup of the blueberries and fold into the batter. Toss remaining blueberries in remaining 1 tablespoon flour. Fold these coated blueberries into the batter.
  • Divide batter among the wells of the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle coarse sugar over the tops and bake for about 20-24 minutes.
  • Remove from muffin tin and allow to cool at least 30 minutes.



Make ahead of time. Place in a large resealable plastic bag and store at room temperature for 3–4 days or in the refrigerator for 7 days. These muffins also freeze well. Place muffins in a single layer in a resealable plastic freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
Pour batter into a parchment paper–lined 5-x-9-inch loaf pan and sprinkle with sugar. Tent with foil and bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
