Aunt Ruthie's Blueberry Muffins
Makes 6 jumbo or 12 cupcake-size
1 1/4 cups plus 2 Tbsp sugar (divided use)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
2 eggs
2 cups plus 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pint fresh or 1 (12-oz) pkg frozen blueberries


Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a 6-cup muffin tin with paper baking cups and coat with cooking spray.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer on Medium speed, beat 1-1/4 cups sugar and the butter until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt; beat well. Add milk and vanilla, and beat until thoroughly combined. Mash 1/2 cup of the blueberries and stir into batter.

In a medium bowl, toss the remaining blueberries with the remaining flour. Fold into batter and spoon into baking cups, distributing batter evenly. Sprinkle tops with remaining sugar.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
