Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins

Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins

Do you New Englanders remember Jordan Marsh department stores? They were bought out by Macys years ago but Jordan Marsh will always have a special place in my heart. They used to sell some of my most favorite blueberry muffins and whenever my family would go to the mall on a Saturday my parents would buy a bunch of blueberry muffins from Jordan Marsh and we’d have them for breakfast on Sunday. To me, blueberry muffins = Sunday and family! I started wondering about them recently and found many recipes online for the original Jordan Marsh Blueberry Muffins. I knew I loved these muffins but I couldn’t exactly remember why… I mean, I was all of 6 when I ate them, so I decided to recreate them so I could fall in love again.

Here’s what you need:


• 1/2 cup soft butter
• 1 1/4 cups of sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 1/2 cup milk
• 2 1/4 cups flour
• 2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 1/2 – 3 cups blueberries
• 2 tablespoons of sugar & 1 teaspoon cinnamon (for tops of muffins)

Here’s what you do:

• Preheat oven to 375.

• Cream butter and sugar.


• Add eggs (one at a time) beating after each egg. Add vanilla. Add milk and dry ingredients (adding alternately). Then beat well.



• Stir (not beat) blueberries in.



• Use your muffin cups in muffin pan.


• Fill until overflowing. Use an ice cream scoop for easy transfer… great tip from Sues’ mom! Hi Sharon! 😉



• Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over the tops of the muffins.



• Bake for 25-30 minutes.




The second I took the first bites I knew exactly why I loved these. They’re soft, light, fluffy, and satisfyingly sweet in all the right ways. I’ve had many a blueberry muffin in my day and I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to feel like I just ate a rock. These muffins will leave your stomach happy. Plus, they’re the perfect little treat to make for company visiting this Summer! Because who doesn’t love waking up to a nicely buttered blueberry muffin waiting for them at the breakfast table?
