Blueberry muffins… too basic, too boring? I admit that when presented with an option of muffins, I usually choose something else. Maybe something chocolately or with a streusel topping. In fact, before I baked these, I couldn’t tell you the last time I had a blueberry muffin.
These blueberry muffins are different. They are not boring, they are not dull. And I’ve been wishing I could start every morning with one (or two, or three) of these muffins, warm and fresh from the oven ever since I made them.
The secret ingredient here is brown butter. You probably aren’t surprised, I am obsessed with the stuff. I actually took the recipe for Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and swapped the lemon and poppy seeds for fresh blueberries. That’s it, and the results were amazing.
When was the last time you had a blueberry muffin? And not just any muffin, but one that practically blows your mind, one that makes you stop mid-bite to exclaim “Lordy!”? This muffin is tender, moist, and sweet— but not too sweet— and flecked with nutty browned butter bits. And the baked blueberries burst in your mouth with bright juiciness.
If it’s been a while, I think it’s time you and the blueberry muffin (this blueberry muffin) get reacquainted.
