Jordan Marsh’s Blueberry Muffins

For those who are unaware, Jordan Marsh was a well known department store in Boston. Apparently their “coffee shop” was best known for their blueberry muffins. Once I saw the recipe printed, I tried it and was happy to declare that they are pretty good!


  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs,
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup milk substitute (or orange juice)
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 3 teaspoons sugar.


1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.

2. Cream the oil and 1 ¼ cups of sugar until light.

3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla.

4. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder and add to the creamed mixture alternately with the liquid.

5. Crush ½ cup blueberries with a fork and mix into the batter. Fold into the remaining blueberries.

6. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners and fill with batter. Sprinkle the 3 teaspoons of sugar over the tops of the muffins and bake for about 30-35 minutes.

7. Remove muffins from tin and cool for at least 30 minutes. Store muffins uncovered or they will be too moist the second day (if they last that long).

I definitely would freeze this recipe if it is being made in advance.
