Blueberry Muffins - TWD: Baking with Julia

Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia - 40th Installment.  The recipe is Blueberry Muffins.
Fluffy batter in the pan
 These were yummy, and more like a fluffy cake batter muffin than a sturdy quickbread muffin.  I used Maine wild blueberries - the end of the season, but glad there were still some available!

I did have another slightly frustrating muffin pan removal experience.  Bottoms of the muffins stuck to the pan - I'm starting to conclude that if the muffins look flat like the photo on the left, I should expect trouble.  I don't know if it's the pans, or something else - I did grease with vegetable shortening, which usually works, and when I make more solid muffins, they come out of the pan fine.  The recipe said to turn them out immediately - that would have been a disaster.  I let them sit for 10 minutes, and they still didn't quite hold together.

At least they tasted delicious, and at the suggestion of the recipe, I toasted the leftovers this morning, and that was very good too.


  1. Glad to hear you liked them despite the sticking and flatness. I also had to wait longer to turn them out- no way they would have stayed whole!

  2. They were good muffins. I enjoyed the light texture...not expected in a muffin.

  3. Oh no. Sorry you had sticking issues! I thought these were quite good myself. Taste is what counts anyway, yes?!!

  4. Ooh Maine wild blueberries! I bet they tasted good! :-)
