Association of CT Fairs Junior Baking Contest Announced
  APRIL 17, 2013 --

2013 Association of Connecticut Fairs Junior Baking Contest recipe.  Please consult the Premium Book/List of a fair in your area for information and rules for entering your Blueberry Muffins in the 2013 contest.

Adapted from a recipe from KingArthurFlour.com




2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

½ cup sugar

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 ½ cups blueberries 

1 cup milk

¼ cup vegetable oil

2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.



1) Blend together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder as long and as vigorously as you want.
2) Add the blueberries and mix until coated.  Coating the berries prevents them from sinking once the liquids are blended in.
3) Beat together the milk, oil, and eggs – until they are light.
4) Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Take a fork or wire whisk and blend the two for 20 seconds – no more. 
5) Line a 12-muffin tin with paper baking cups.  Fill two-thirds to three-quarters full.  Place muffins in the oven.
6) Immediately drop oven temperature to 400 degrees F.
7) Bake for 15 – 20 minutes.  Yield – 12 muffins.

Submit six muffins on a white paper plate.
