CopyCat Junior's "Berries on Top" Jumbo Blueberry Muffins

READY IN: 40mins




  • First of all, divide up your berries into three different batches- set aside a 2/3 cup portion for mashing, then divide the remaining berries into two equal portions- one portion for folding into the batter, and the remainder for dropping on top.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Grease 6 jumbo muffins tins or 12 regular size muffin tins well.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • In another bowl, on high speed with an electric mixer, cream the butter about 2 minutes- until light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer still running, gradually add the sugar and mix well.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well.
  • Continue to beat until creamy and batter looks light yellow.
  • Mix in vanilla and mashed berries until well combined.
  • Lower speed of mixer to medium, beat in some of the flour mixture, then some of the milk, and then more flour etc- in three portions each.
  • Beat batter until airy and well combined, about 1 more minute.
  • Gently fold in one of the portions of whole berries.
  • Fill muffing tins almost all the way full.
  • Drop the remaining portion of whole berries individually atop the muffin batter.
  • Bake about 1o minutes, then REDUCE oven temp to 375 F and continue baking until golden brown and set in the center, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot.
