2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
8 tbsp. (1 stick/4oz) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
Preheat an oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Butter standard size muffin tins.
In a medium bowl, stir and toss together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. In another medium bowl, whisk together the milk, maple syrup, butter and eggs until smooth. Add the combined dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Add the blueberries and stir just until evenly incorporated.
Spoon into the prepared muffin tins, filling each cup about three-fourths full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the tins for 5 minutes, then remove.
Makes about 16 standard size muffins.
