Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins (and a brown butter recipe roundup)

by Rachel | Studio Cuisine on October 7, 2012

Before you do anything, be sure to check out the new and improved inspiration page! I split all my favorite blogs into categories, so that should hopefully make things easier to navigate. Now, on to muffins. I am so glad I used this week to catch up on a recipe I missed before I joined this little baking crew, because these muffins were aaaaaamazing!

I’m a firm believer in the fact that brown butter makes everything better – bruises, cuts, sprained wrists, bruised egos, and baked goods too. In the past two weeks, I’ve experienced all of the above. A piece of advice: slippery shoes, escalators, and clumsiness are not a good combination!

You can find the recipe in the Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple & Comforting Recipes. The only change I made was replacing the 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour with 1 cup of white whole wheat flour, leaving a 1/2 cup of the flour as all-purpose.

Thanks for linking up my pumpkin banana bread and these muffins of yours look so good! I have seen this recipe in Joy’s cookbook and have always wanted to make it. I also love browned butter, too. I wrote a little tutorial in one post about how to do it in the microwave b/c the author of the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook (C. Tosi) says that’s how she does it and I was skeptical but it works! Love browned butter…so much!

You’re so welcome! Would love to see that tutorial, I can’t even fathom browning butter in the microwave!


7 Averie @ Averie Cooks October 7, 2012 at 5:44 pm

here you go!

It totally works, too! Depending on the microwave, anywhere from about 3 mins for 1 stick to about 5 mins, depending also on how browned you like your browned butter and some sticks just brown up faster than others.
