I'm just going to keep posting about blueberries until I'm sure it's going to be summer again; I think we have a few tubs still in the freezer.
The search is for a blueberry muffin recipe with cardamom, and here's some sample of same, to see what the variety is in the recipes so that perhaps some meta-recipe will emerge. Do be sure to read the first one through; it's a moving memorial and a story of how we celebrate the end of someone's life.
In her own words "I've eaten a lot of blueberry muffins in my day, but none as good as my sister Norma's."
Edna's Favourite Blueberry Muffins
50g soft butter (1/4 c)
125g sugar (3/4 c)
1 egg, well beaten
160g pastry flour (1-1/2c)
1/2 tsp salt
1 dspn baking powder (2 tsp)
150g blueberries (fresh or frozen) (1 c)
- Preheat oven to 375F/190C and line or butter 12 medium muffin cups/9 large muffin cups.
- Sift together flour, salt and baking powder.
- Cream together butter and sugar. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk. Fold in blueberries.
- Fill the tins (at least 2/3 full). Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done.
(this one doesn't have cardamom in it, but I will quote the preface to the recipe; you can link to the actual recipe)
After posting Champion Blueberry Muffins, more people have come to this site looking for from-scratch blueberry muffins than, as far as I can tell by the search terms that lead people here, anything else. I've been feeling sort of guilty: that post was such a tease. Unfortunately, blueberries are definitely out of season during these dark days; but maybe you stashed some in your refrigerator last August...
a recipe from amyburns1999 on SparkPeople for Blueberry Cardamom Muffins; it's vegan, should that be relevant to you. (personally, skip the splenda, but that's me)
45 Minutes to Prepare and Cook
1 cup almonds|
2 cups frozend blueberries
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar/splenda
2 tsp cardamom
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup vanilla soy milk lite
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
surprisingly - there were not a lot of these recipes that were easy to find on the first go-around; that might have been just because the general rule is "optional: add some other spice to taste". will report back after I experiment.
