Here is your shopping list:

- eggs: 2 large eggs

How to make blueberry muffins
Take the butter and eggs out of the refrigerator a couple of hours ahead of time so they have time to soften and warm up.
Preheat the oven to 375℉.
Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Make the batter
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. The butter should be a light yellow color.
Add the eggs, one at a time and beat until combined after each addition.
Mix in the milk, honey, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture a little bit at a time. Beat until combined, but do not over-mix or the muffins will turn out tough.
Mix in the blueberries with a spoon.
Bake the muffins
Fill each of the liners ¾ full with batter.
Using a cookie scoop makes it easy to get the right amount into each muffin cup.
Sprinkle the turbinado sugar over the tops of the muffins, if desired. It adds a little bit of a sweet crunch.
You can also add a few blueberries to the top of each muffin if you want them to look pretty.
Then bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. You may see some blueberry juice on the toothpick (if you happen to hit a blueberry), but there shouldn’t be any batter.
Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5 minutes on a cooling rack before removing them from the pan to cool some more.
Don’t leave them in the pan too long or the bottom of the muffins will get soggy.
Serve with butter if desired.
These muffins can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 24 hours.
Or in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. To keep them from getting soggy, line the container (or a zip-loc bag) with paper towel.
Muffins are also very easy to freeze in a single layer in a ziploc bag or airtight container. Thaw on a paper towel in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.
