Does anyone remember Jordan Marsh? It was a New England department store that closed it’s doors when I was little, but I still remember going there with my mom. I had forgotten about it until I was googling “the best blueberry muffin recipe” a few days ago and Jordan Marsh kept coming up. I don’t remember this, but apparently their blueberry muffins were a cult favorite. Once I read that I knew I had to make them - muffins so good that people go to a department store for them instead of a bakery? Sign me up!
Well, they turned out even better than I expected. Super moist, not too sweet, and not at all greasy. I think the secret is all the blueberries! They were very simple to make, too. Other than the blueberries i had all of the ingredients on hand. Here’s how to make them:
Preheat oven to 375 and grease a muffin pan (I really like the Bakers Delight Spray or the Pam bakers spray). Cream together 1/2 cup unsalted butter and one cup sugar. Add in 2 eggs, one at a time. In a separate bowl whisk together 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 cups of flour. Gradually beat these dry ingredients into the creamed butter mixture along with 1/2 cup milk and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla. Once everything is just combined stir in 2 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries. Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy with a hot cup of coffee or tea!
Do you remember Jordan Marsh? What’s your favorite muffin recipe? I’m also partial to cranberry walnut, I’m excited to make those next!
