Best-Ever Blueberry Muffins

Modified from BH&G's Homemade Bread Cookbook. Tip: if you don't have whole milk on hand, mix your low-fat milk with a pat of melted butter. It helps preserve the fat ratio in the recipe and keeps the muffins from being dry.

These are awesome. We didn't dip the tops, but they are so tasty. I love the cinnamon in these. My kids like them a lot too. Thanks for sharing!

These are the absolute best-ever Blueberry Muffins! Thanks so much for posting this recipe! I lost my BH&G bread book in a move and have been freaking out because I love it so much! I have been baking these since the early 70's and they are fabulous! I made them this morning in Texas muffin tins and I am hoping my hub does not wake up before they are done. I used fresh frozen blueberries that my neighbors daughter picked for me last season and I added some lemon zest to the dry as well as the berries. I also increased the dry ingredient sugar to 1/2 cup. The blueberry ingredients stated 4 tablespoons sugar while the directions state 3. It's muffins and not rocket science so if you like them sweet like my dh go for it! I also put a pinch of zest into the butter for dipping (I am actualy going to use a silicone brush, then sugar them and let them sit on the counter til dh is done sawing wood. He will have his coffee and I will have my tea and he will be smiling all day!
