Cuisine: American
Nutrition Information: Approx. 200 calories per muffin

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Cream Filling:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Topping:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease it lightly.
  2. Prepare the Batter:
    In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and milk. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  3. Add Blueberries:
    Gently fold in the fresh blueberries into the batter.
  4. Fill the Muffin Tin:
    Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake:
    Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Prepare the Cream Filling:
    In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.
  7. Fill the Muffins:
    Once the muffins are completely cooled, use a small knife or a piping tip to create a hole in the center of each muffin. Fill each hole with the whipped cream mixture.
  8. Prepare the Topping:
    In a small bowl, mix the sugar and ground cinnamon together.
  9. Add the Topping:
    Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the tops of the filled muffins.
