Very Good Blueberry Muffins – A Cozy Kitchen

Does the internet need another blueberry muffin? Absolutely not. But this is my story and my blog and I make what I want. Lol.

All kidding aside, I wanted a blueberry muffin recipe that I could whip up when people came over. I wanted a very good blueberry muffin recipe!

But I had some particulars:

I wanted it to be moist, not dry and gross. I wanted the top to be crispy and delicious. I wanted that bakery-style domed top that is so hard to achieve but looks so beautiful. And I wanted it to be easy, easy!

Well, good news is that most muffins are super easy to make. This one is super simple: wet ingredients are poured into dry ingredients. Using both butter and oil mean good flavor (hello butter) and oil means they’re super moist.

The wonderful dome topping is due to two things: resting the batter for at least an hour, but ideally overnight. And having the oven set to 400 degrees for the first 7 minutes. The high temperature creates steam, making the muffins super puffy.

The muffin is then baked for the remaining time at 350 degrees F. The crunchy top is thanks to the high temperature and a bit of turbinado sugar.

And that’s it! Those two little things contribute to this super delicious muffin.

Bakery-Style perfectly domed blueberry muffins. These are moist, delicious, not overly sweet and are very good blueberry muffins.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 19 minutes

Total Time: 34 minutes

Serving Size: 12 muffins

Calories: 222kcal

  • 2 cups blueberries, tossed in a teaspoon of flour
  • 1 cup shaken buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons neutral oil (such as grapeseed, vegetable oil or avocado oil)
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, for topping
  • Place muffin liners in a muffin tin and set aside. If your liners aren’t made of parchment and just paper, you might want to spray them with cooking spray.

  • In a bowl, toss the blueberries with the teaspoon of flour and set aside. 

  • In medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, sugar, neutral oil, eggs and vanilla extract. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until barely combined. Add the blueberries. 

  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest for at least 1 hour, ideally overnight. 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Divide the batter amongst the twelve cavities in the muffin tin. Sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar. 

  • Transfer to the oven to bake for 7 minutes. Then immediately turn the oven’s temperature down to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 10 to 12 minutes, until the tops are lightly golden brown and nicely domed. 

  • Let the muffins cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then carefully remove and allow to cool on a cooling rack.

A Ridiculously Good Chocolate Pudding

I’ve done chocolate pudding many, many ways over the years. And it’s nearly always good. But from this day forward if you come to my house for dinner, and I decide chocolate pudding might be a nice finish to the meal, this is the recipe I’ll be using. 
The Best Chocolate Pudding Recipe from La Patisserie est un Jeu d'Enfants French children's cookbook

It’s from a whimsical, illustrated French children’s cookbook published by Random House in 1966, La Patisserie est un Jeu d’Enfants, with text and drawings by Michel Oliver. The pudding completely caught me off-guard, in the best way possible.The Best Chocolate Pudding Recipe from La Patisserie est un Jeu d'Enfants French children's cookbook

French versus American Chocolate Pudding

This is not like a typical American chocolate pudding, it has no milk, cocoa powder, or cornstarch – which makes sense because it is from a French book. This is more of a deep, concentrated, dark chocolate mousse, although if you’re used to chocolate mousse that has whipped cream folded in, it’s different from that as well.

Tips & Tricks

The key here is good chocolate, then a gentle touch bringing a short list of common ingredients together, and the bit of patience required to let the pudding cool and set. That last part makes all the difference. Time in the refrigerator allows the pudding to set into the densest dark chocolate cloud imaginable, the consistency of whipped frosting.

Choosing the Right Chocolate

I’ll make note in the recipe below, but you’ll want to use good-quality chocolate in the 60-80% range – semi-sweet to bittersweet. Aside from the chocolate, you’re only adding a bit of water and butter, a sprinkling of sugar, and two eggs, so don’t skimp on the quality of ingredients here, there’s really no place to hide.

As you can see up above here, the book itself is incredibly charming. The edition I have alternates French and English pages, so you’ll have a page in French, then the same page in English. The French title for this recipe is “Glissade” which they’ve translated on the following English page to Slippery Chocolate Pudding – which made me smile. Keep your eyes peeled, you can find copies of La Patisserie est un Jeu d’Enfants (Making French Desserts and Pastry is Child’s Play) here and there if you look around.
