Blueberry Cinnamon-Burst Muffins - A good start in the morning



My kids love to start their day with an homemade treat. They really enjoy banana bread, chocolate chips muffins, poppy seeds muffins and blueberry muffins.

These muffins hit the mark. When you mix blueberry and cinnamon you cannot go wrong. This recipe is adapted from Cooking Light.

I bake a batch of bread or muffins and freeze them. In the morning they just warm one in the microwave. It's fast and healthy. Better then eating from vending machine at school.


Blueberry Cinnamon-Burst Muffins

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons chilled butter; cut into small pieces
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen wild blueberries
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400.

Combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl, and
cut in 3 tablespoons butter with a pastry blender until mixture
resembles coarse meal. Cover and chill 30 minutes.

Place 1 cup sugar and 1/3 cup butter in a bowl; beat with a mixer at high
speed I minute or until combined. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after
each addition. Lightly spoon 2 1/2 cups flour into dry measuring cups;
level with a knife. Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, baking powder,and salt,
stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to butter
mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries and
cinnamon mixture (batter will be thick)


Bake 15 to 18 min. 

Yield: 18 muffins


The original version of these muffins won Courtney Ayers a blue ribbon;
this adaptation was lightened a bit. A whole tablespoon of cinnamon in the
batter makes these smell heavenly when they bake.



I adapted this recipe from the CLBB

Version française:

Quoi de plus agréable que de commencer la journée avec un bon déjeuner. Mes enfants aiment bien les muffins et pains maison. Ils aiment pain aux bananes, muffins au grains de chocolat, muffins aux graines de pavot et muffins aux bleuets.

J'essaie souvent de nouvelles recettes et celle-ci de Cooking Light a obtenu un 10/10. Avec un mélange de bleuets et cannelle on ne peut pas se tromper.
