Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins Week 2 Sundays With Joy

Welcome to another week of of Sundays With Joy.

If you have not snagged a copy of Joy the Baker's new book you really need to get on that and ask to join our group! Last week we had 28ish members participating...

This week we have over 50!

Joy Wilson aka Joy the Baker has even joined our group! How exciting right?! She even checked out a scone post here and there. We are all a little star struck when it comes to Joy.... And it makes our day to see that she has seen and likes what we are all doing!

This week the recipe I assigned everyone was Joys Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins.

In her book she say's they are like heaven. They are.

They really are THE perfect muffin.

I know you are all thinking... it's just a blueberry muffin.

No friends.... this is not just A muffin.

It's THE best blueberry muffin you will ever have.

It might even change the way you look at muffins.

I'm pretty sure I will use this is my base from now on for ALL muffins. I see so many types in my future and I can't wait to try the combos.

The batter has a depth given to it from the brown butter, so you have a slight hint of caramel. It's perfectly sweet but not to sweet that the muffin itself over powers the berries. The crumb top.... oh the crumb top is my favorite!

I was a fool and did not follow Joy 100% on this one... I mixed up the crumb topping and started sprinkling it over the tops of my muffins. It looked like too much topping so I stopped. And I didn't use it all.  :( when my  muffins were out of the oven I was bummed... they needed more topping.

WHY DIDN'T I LISTEN TO JOY! Live and learn.... her recipes really don't need to be fudged with.

I also used frozen Wild Maine Blueberries... nothing wrong with using frozen in this recipe and Joy gave it a thumbs up. But next time, fresh berries are being used in mine.

 Fresh is always best!

Unlike most of my posts, today I will not be sharing the recipe to these change your life Brown Butter Blueberry Mufins. Instead I ask that if you want to try them.... please get your own copy of Joy the Baker Cookbook : 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes.

  3. Carrie, you have taken on such a big thing here and it was such a great idea! My hat is off to you. When I came across it, I was like "duh, why didn't I think of that?". Even if I did I don't think I would have had the courage to oversee such a big thing. Thank you for uniting bunches of us with our love for a great cookbook!

  4. Your muffins are ALMOST as lovely and beautiful as you are, my sweet friend! You did a fantastic job, and I'm SO grateful that you set this up for us!

  5. I LOVE Joy the Baker and I love that you have a whole day dedicated to her! These muffins look so incredible!

  6. Hi, just hopped over from Tasty Kitchen to tour around your blog and didn't get very far, cause these muffins are awesome! Heading out to get the book now, I've had it earmarked as "one to buy", but now i'm convinced! I'd love it if you would stop by and link up to my linky party. Either this one to promote the book...or one of your other fabulous dishes. Hope to see you there!

  7. Your muffins look beautiful Carrie! I love being involved in this group.

  8. Last week I said I was going to join you and then I forgot. THEN I saw this and I realized I did myself a BIG disservice by forgetting... these look AMAZING. Off to RIGHT NOW. (Just went to facebook and requested to join. Super excited to learn more baking recipes, and from a great baker like Joy with great people like you!)

  9. Perfect muffins in my opinion! Nothing better than a blueberry muffin.

  10. Lovely muffins! And thank you again for starting the baking group, it already has been quite the pleasure! :)

  11. If there is one thing I love as much as brown butter, it's a good blueberry muffin. These look awesome! I just adore Joy the Baker.
