Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins


Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins 080


Blueberry Muffins are such a classic favorite.  They are wonderful hot out of the oven with butter melting on them, but they are also perfect to take for lunch or for a late-night or after-school snack.  And is there a better gift for welcoming new neighbors or as a special homemade gift?

These Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins are easy to put together, the key is browning the butter before you begin to give the muffins a richer, deeper flavor – perfect for fall.

The butter only takes a few minutes, then you can mix these muffins up in one bowl – no mixer needed.

Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins


2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 cup whole milk
1 large egg, beaten
1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons brown sugar


Preheat oven to 400.  Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners or coat with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar; make a well in the center.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Once it melts, swirl the pan until the butter begins to brown and smell nutty, 2-3 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Pour the butter, milk, and egg into the well of flour and stir to combine (a few lumps in the batter are okay- don’t over mix.)  Fold in the blueberries and divide the batter amount the muffin cups.  Sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.  Bake 16-20 minutes.  Let pan cool on wire rack before removing muffins.

  1. As I was reading this post–I knew I had to make these this morning. I think (hope) it is finally fall here in S. Calif–woke up to a temp of 59. Muffins are in the oven now. I didn’t have fresh blueberries so went with frozen–but they look great. The smell is wafting through the house and has woken the dog–I imagine DH isn’t far behind.

  2. I will be trying these real soon to use up fresh blueberries that I had frozen. Will let you know how they turn out.

  3. Frozen blue berries worked out great. I did not thaw them, they just set out whilst I did everything else. I baked them 2 minutes longer just for good measure(22 min. total).
    These were bursting with berries. We are in Love!

  4. So glad you liked them CTY and the frozen berries will come in handy this winter! We love them too – I like that it takes just minutes to make 12 or I can double when I have company! Have a great weekend-
