Blueberries are a classic summer fruit. And what better way to enjoy them than blueberry muffins?

I love anything made with blueberries and I recently tried a wonderful blueberry muffin recipe from Zoë François. Do you know about her?

She is a WONDERFUL baker and I think she is secretly a woodland sprite who escaped from the forest to sprinkle fairy dust around the world wherever she goes.

She is a pastry chef, cookbook author, and host of her own baking show on the Magnolia Network.

If you aren’t familiar with her work, I encourage you to get some of her books and watch her show. She is truly a delight.

The funny thing is that when we lived in Virginia, I started learning how to bake bread and used a book that is very popular with those learning how to bake bread, called The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

I knew at the time that Zoë was one of the authors of the book but I didn’t know who she was then.

We love watching her baking show on the Magnolia Network and I subscribe to her newsletter. So recently she sent a blueberry muffin recipe and asked everyone to try it and let her know what we think.

I regularly make her chocolate chip cookie recipe, so I was totally on board with trying the blueberry muffins.

They did not disappoint.

There were a few steps involved because you have to make the topping separately, which is a delicious combination of flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter.

You also have to toss the blueberries in flour prior to adding them to the recipe. This is an important step because this helps the blueberries stay suspended in the batter rather than sinking to the bottom.

And you have to gently blend the blueberries into the batter so that the batter stays that lovely color. If you overmix the blueberries, the batter can turn gray. Gray muffins are not appetizing. :)

You can make really large muffins with this recipe, or bake them in a regular muffin tin. I chose to just do regular-size muffins and this recipe made a dozen and a half.

Look at that topping!

Sometimes I make blueberry muffins in these adorable muffin cups that look like the little containers you get blueberries in at the store or at a farmer’s market.

I love these little things.

I didn’t use them this time because I only have 2 sets and that only makes 8 muffins, and I wasn’t sure how many this recipe made so I just used a regular muffin tin.

But these are so cute and fun and since these muffins were so good, I may just make several batches in these little muffin cups.

These muffins turned out so tender and the crispy topping just added such a nice contrasting texture and everyone in my house declared them to be delicious.

So I highly recommend this blueberry muffin recipe!

If you try it out, I’d love to hear what you think.

And I’d love for you to follow me on Pinterest!
