Tuesdays with Dorie – Blueberry Muffins

  • The blueberry muffins from Baking with Julia  for today were good – nice, light airy muffins, even though they presented me with some quirks.  Blueberry MuffinsMy blueberries settled on the bottom even though I coated them with dry ingredients.  They baked in 15 minutes, so 18-20 minutes would have been way too long.  I found them to be like light little cakes.  A good snack with coffee, however.

  • I used King Arthur Cake Flour Blend.  Haven’t sifted anything that much in a long time.
  • Lots of bowls – bowl for liquid ingredients, bowl for dry ingredients, bowl for blueberries, and bowl for milk and egg mixture.

After 15 minutes, I was afraid to leave them in any longer.  They were golden brown, sprang back to the touch, were just beginning to dry around the edges, and a bamboo stick came out dry.

See how brown they got on the bottom.  I used Pam butter spray.  Maybe that hurried the browning.

Blueberry Muffins

I would probably not make them again because of the extra work.  I have a recipe from the King Arthur Whole Grain Baking book that I use, and my family really likes them.   The blueberries stay scattered throughout, and I use ground wheat berries for part of the flour.  The dry ingredients go into a bowl and the wet are mixed into a well in the center – all in one bowl mixed with a wooden spoon.

    Yeah, there were definitely a LOT of dirty dishes :) I like the sound of your King Arthur recipe.

    I use King Arthur’s unbleached cake flour too. I find that other cake flours have a strange aftertaste. I have the KA Whole Grain Baking book. I’ll have to try their blueberry muffin recipe. Thanks for the tip!

      It is towards the front of the book. Blueberry
      Muffins are listed as a variation of the
      main muffin recipe. I used 25% wheat berries ground. Look on my blog. There’s a post about them. Marie

    Yup. My berries sank to the bottom as well. Still, I enjoyed them.

    A fussier recipe than I’m used to for muffins, but the resulting texture was great! :)

    It was a lot of dishes!! But I did really enjoy them. I don’t think I’ve ever had such light (in texture) muffins before.
