John Pupek shared his magical recipe. He explained the blend of flours in his recipe and the fistful of sugar tossed on top of each sweet muffin before baking. Mixing the blueberries with some of the flour before adding them to the batter was another of his tips.
There is a restaurant in Newton Centre called Johnny's Luncheonette where I love to go to breakfast when I am visiting my daughter at Boston College. There are so many things to choose from on the menu but the one thing that we always get is the Jordan Marsh bluebery muffin, cut across the middle horizontally, smeared with butter and toasted. It is DELICIOUS! This morning I saw on Facebook that a reporter in Boston, Maria Stephanos WCVB, had the recipe! I had to share the details.
During a recent interview the baker, John Pupek shared his magical recipe. He explained the blend of flours in his recipe and the fistful of sugar tossed on top of each sweet muffin before baking. Mixing the blueberries with some of the flour before adding them to the batter was another of his tips.
On low speed, cream butter with sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix until blended. Sift dry ingredients; add to eggs-and-butter mixture, alternating with milk. Mash 1/2 cup of berries and stir into mixture by hand. Add the rest of the berries whole and stir by hand. Grease muffin tins well with butter; grease the top surface of the pans as well. Pile mixture high in each muffin cup, and sprinkle the sugar over tops.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
