Beautiful Browned Butter Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

blueberry muffins

Say that title 5 times fast! I had some buttermilk leftover from my Irish Soda bread last week and a carton of fresh blueberries to use up, so what else to do but seek out a blueberry buttermilk muffin recipe. These muffins were so lovely they looked like they came from a coffee house! With a crunchy outside and a moist and flavourful inside, these are pretty darned close to muffin perfection in my book.

These are not overly sweet with 1 cup of sugar. If you like your muffins sweeter, increase the sugar by a 1/4 or 1/2 a cup. Feel free to add a bit of lemon zest, if you like the blueberry/lemon flavour combination. The sifting of the dry ingredients and the browning of the butter set these muffins apart from the ordinary. If you have the time, I’d highly recommend making them this way (I know it’s tempting to skip these steps when we’re in a hurry :)

Finally, these muffins make a great base for all kinds of fruit. Try them with blackberries or cranberries (would definitely want to up the sugar and maybe add a little orange zest).
