A brush of melted butter and a sprinkling of sugar finish off these blueberry muffins. Serve them at brunch or for lunch with a tossed spinach salad.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, rinsed, drained, and patted dry
  • Melted butter or margarine
  • Sugar or coarse sugar


  1. Grease eighteen 2-1/2-inch muffin cups or line with paper bake cups.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, the 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients; set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, beat eggs. Stir in milk, the 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine, and vanilla. Add all at once to dry ingredients. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in blueberries.

  5. Place pan of muffins on wire rack. Brush with additional melted butter or margarine; sprinkle with sugar. Remove from muffin cups. Serve warm. Makes 18 muffins.
