Blueberry Muffins

Cardamom brightens these classic morning treats

We love the smell of breakfast pastries in the morning. And, trust us, you'll smell these vanilla-and-cardamom-scented muffins throughout the house. We pack them with blueberries to make sure you get fruit in every bite.

Whether you're making them for a big brunch or an on-the-go snack during the week, the muffins are a great batch recipe. Feel free to freeze any extra, and then refresh in a 350º oven as you want-if you have leftovers, that is.

Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 40 minutes
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2½ cups blueberries
  • ¼ cup turbinado sugar, for topping
  1. Preheat the oven to 375º and line a standard muffin tin with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and ground cardamom, then set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter with the sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well until incorporated before adding the next. With the motor running, slowly add the flour mixture in 2 additions, alternating with the milk, until a smooth batter comes together.
  3. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and, using a rubber spatula, fold in the blueberries. Divide the batter between the muffin liners and sprinkle each with turbinado sugar. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Then serve.
