Here's a recipe for the blueberry muffins at Starbuck's. This recipe originated from www.ca.answers.yahoo.
- 1⁄4 cup soft butter
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 1⁄2 cups pastry flour
- 1 grated lemon, rind of
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1 cup wild blueberries
- Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and mix well. Sift dry ingredients together. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture, alternating with milk. (Begin and end with flour for the best texture. Not sure why, but this works.) Toss blueberries with lemon rind and gently fold into batter. Do not over-mix.
- Fill 12-cup muffin tin with paper cups or grease with butter. Fill 2/3 full with batter.
- Bake in preheated 375F oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove from tins and cool on rack.
These are probably the best blueberry muffins I've ever had. My husband ate 3 hot and has been raving about them all day. I'm not sure how people thought there was no taste...They must have forgotten an ingredient. Don't skimp on the lemon zest, and if you don't have pastry flour, you can add 2 T cornstarch to a scant 1 C AP Flour.
This was nothing like Starbuck's Blueberry muffins. There was ABSOLUTELY no taste to the muffin at all. There has got to be a better recipe out there.
Yahoo! My husband Mike likes these better than starbucks! I shared the first batch with family members and received a big thumbs up and a do you have any more?
