Becky is the newest Siren of Sherwood and she's about to welcome a beautiful little girl to the planet, she brought us a great recipe to welcome in the first blueberry harvest of the season, thanks Becky, our blessings to you and your bambina.
½ Cup (1 stick) butter, at room temp.
1 Cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Cups blueberries (mash ½ cup with a fork)
2 Cups flour
1/2 Cup milk
1 Tablespoon sugar mixed with ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
Heat oven to 375 degrees and grease 12 muffin cups. Beat butter until creamy, then beat in sugar, then beat in eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and salt. Mix mashed berries into batter, then fold in half of flour and half of milk. Add remaining flour and milk, then fold in remaining blueberries. Fill muffin cups and sprinkle with nutmeg sugar. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 20 minutes in pan before removing.
