• 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour • 3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for the muffin tops • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 1/3 cup oil, neutral-flavored • 1 large egg • 1/3-1/2 cup milk • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract • 8 ounces blueberries, fresh or frozen


Step 1

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2

Line 10 standard-size muffin cups.

Step 3

Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.

Step 4

Add the oil to a measuring cup that holds at least 1 cup.

Step 5

Add the egg.

Step 6

Fill the measuring cup to the 1-cup line with milk.

Step 7

Add the vanilla and whisk to combine.

Step 8

Add the milk mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients then use a fork to combine. Do not overmix. The muffin batter will be quite thick and lumpy.

Step 9

Fold in the blueberries.

Step 10

Divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups.

Step 11

Sprinkle a little sugar on top of each muffin.

Step 12

Bake the muffins until the tops are no longer wet and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with only a few crumbs instead of wet batter, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 13

Transfer the muffins to a cooling rack.

Step 14

Serve when cool enough to eat!
