Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 ounces of fresh Ayco Farms Blueberries.
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour.
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for muffin tops.
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt.
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder.
  • 1/3 cup of neutral flavored oil; canola or vegetable oil are great.
  • 1 large egg.
  • 1/2 cup of milk; dairy and non-dairy both work.
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
  • Muffin paper liners.

PREPARE OVEN AND MUFFIN CUPS

  1. Using standard muffin size try, line 10 muffin cups with paper liners and fill remaining 2 empty cups with water to help the muffins bake evenly.

MAKE BATTER

  1. Whisk the 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 3/4 of a cup of sugar, 2 table spoons of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt in a large bowl. Set this aside.
  2. Add 1/3 cup of oil to a measuring jug that holds at least 1 cup.
  3. Add 1 large egg then fill the jug to the 1-cup line with 1/2 cup of milk.
  4. Add 1-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
  5. Add milk mixture to the bowl with dry ingredients, that was set aside in (part 1) then use a fork or large spoon to combine. Do not over mix. (The muffin batter will be quite thick). Fold in the 6 to 8 ounces of fresh Ayco Farms blueberries. The batter is now ready.

BAKE MUFFINS

  1. Divide the batter between muffin cups and sprinkle a little sugar on top of each muffin batter. This will add a little crunch once baked.
  2. Bake muffins 15 to 20 minutes or until muffin tops are no longer wet. To check if fully baked insert toothpick into the middle of a muffin and pull it out slowly. If it comes out with crumbs, it's complete, if it comes out with wet batter, leave to bake for several more minuets. Enjoy!
