Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray a standard (3-inch) muffin tin with cooking spray or line tin with paper muffin cups.

  4. Whisk the eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla together in a large bowl.
  5. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar in a separate bowl. Stir to distribute evenly.
  6. Stir the dry ingredients into the milk mixture until combined. Batter will be lumpy.
  7. Rinse the blueberries with cool water to wash away dark juices to avoid a very purple colored muffin.

  9. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups; will make 15 muffins.
  10. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until browned.
