Recipe: Very Berry Blueberry Muffins

This recipe is a slight variation on my Blueberry Muffin recipe that I posted earlier this year. I love to make muffins and change it up a bit by adding a surprise center to them. In this case…. I make my blueberry muffin batter and fill the muffin tin about a third of the way… then add a generous dollop of blueberry pie filling … then cover the pie filling with more muffin batter.

The result …. a wonderful blueberry muffin chock full of blueberry flavor. It takes a terrific blueberry muffin and makes it even better!

So here’s the blueberry muffin recipe again…. this time with blueberry pie filling .... it’s so easy …. and so delicious!


Recipe: Very Berry Blueberry Muffins

All you need:

2 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
¼ cup oil
1 egg
1 cup blueberries
1 can blueberry pie filling
4 tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup sugar

All you need to do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease muffin cups well.

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a medium bowl, beat together the milk, egg and oil.

In a medium bowl, add the blueberries to the sifted flour mixture. Toss lightly.

Combine the flour-blueberry mixture with the milk mixture. Fold together very lightly.

Fill muffin cups 1/3 full.

Add a generous dollop of blueberry pie filling.

Add muffin batter to fill the muffin tin to about 3/4 full.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (no batter just blueberry pie filling).

Melt butter and have in a wide bowl ready for when muffins come out of the oven.

Put ½ cup sugar in a wide bowl.

Remove muffins from pan when still hot.

Quickly dip the muffin tops in the melted butter then twirl in sugar.

Makes 8 to 12 muffins.
