Grammy McCarthy's Blueberry Muffins
From Mary McCarthy, Nate’s beyond-lovely grandmother
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • small ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, cold cut into small pieces or softened to room temp
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Work in the butter with a fork or pastry blender until well mixed. Whisk egg and milk together in separate bowl, then add to dry ingredients. Carefully fold in blueberries. Sprinkle tops with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 mins. Makes appx. 8-9 standard-sized muffins.
  2. To reheat muffins the next day, but in a low oven (200 – 250 degrees) for 10-15 minutes or so. Take them right back to that perfect straight-out-of-the-oven moment. If you’re pressed for time, heat in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, then put in the toaster oven for a few minutes to “crisp” the outside up a bit.
