Recipe By Chef Jim Coleman

Make a bunch of these for Sunday breakfast or brunch and freeze the rest for an on-the-go-breakfast.

Makes 12 muffins



  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1 ¼ cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Coarse sugar as garnish (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 375° degrees. Grease twelve two-and-a-half -inch muffin pan cups. Set aside.
    2. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium mixing bowl. If using frozen blueberries, add them to the flour mixture. Make a well in the center of the mixture and set aside.
    3. Combine eggs, milk, sour cream, butter, and orange peel. Add all at once to the dry mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). If using fresh blueberries, fold in now.
    4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each almost full. If desired, sprinkle tops with coarse sugar. Bake in a preheated oven 20 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven and cool in muffin cups on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups and continue to cool.

High Tunnel farming caught my eye because its extended growing season adds to the amount of local produce we get. While farm manager Aviva Asher was tidying up the winter crop to make way for spring, I discovered another benefit of local growing: use what you’ve got.
