Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins

brown butter blueberry muffins

Part of the fun in forming friendships is finding the similarities & differences you share with someone else. There’s nothing like an opportunity to tell your stories and parts of who you are to fresh ears. When we were about a year into our friendship and still learning about each other’s lives, I remember walking down the street with Joy, telling her about my husband and his silly antics. Casey has a love for blueberry muffins like no one else and in the late 90s he created a little website for himself where he could track the best blueberry muffins around his office in downtown San Francisco. I happened to find it utterly charming and I could see that Joy respected his dedication. During that walk, Joy shared that she was working on a recipe for blueberry muffins in her cookbook that Casey would no doubt love.

Fast forward a few years later and now said cookbook is in my hands with her personal purple sharpie notes all over it. I felt somewhat paralyzed by it all. Where do I even begin?! Her friendship is so very dear to me and her cookbook has genuinely blown me away. I’m not saying this because we’re great friends; I have honestly never had a cookbook in my possession that has made me want to rush into my kitchen and try EVERY single recipe. So when I say I was paralyzed, I honestly didn’t know where to start. Which recipe first?!

I looked at her notes in the book and then found myself staring down this brown butter blueberry muffin recipe. Of course she had me at brown butter but then the memory of our conversation popped into my head. This is the killer blueberry muffin recipe! DUDE. I saw it on her website but now it’s in print!  And it’s resting on my kitchen counter!

She wasn’t kidding; even the muffin batter was insane (it tasted like caramel!). Twelve super moist (she hates that word) muffins LOADED with blueberries and speckled with a buttery crumb topping. Tracy Shutterbean & Casey approved!

Joy! Thank you for sharing your talents with me, my family and the WORLD. You’ve challenged me to see things differently. You have opened my mind up to crazy wacky pattern combos, you’ve turned me into a girl that paints her nails every week, you’ve made a bourbon lover out of me, you’ve shown me that hard work eventually pays off and you’ve also helped me find my inner Oprah voice that shouts “YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU WANT TO DO!”  I’m so happy the rest of the world can see how truly talented & hard working you are. I’m so dang proud of you, friend!

One more thing! So of coooooourse I pre-ordered The Joy the Baker Cookbook a LOOONG time ago. It arrived today!

I’d love to give you one of my copies. So if you’d like a chance to win, leave a comment below! You’ll be magically entered. If you already bought the cookbook, hooray! I’m pretty sure one of your friends would love a copy.

I’ll pick a winner at random on Friday, March 2nd.


And we’re off!

Get out your ingredients. Get out your Joy the Baker Cookbook!

Best blueberry muffin recipe. Ever!

Brown Butter Blueberry Muffins

makes 12 muffins

(recipe from the Joy the Baker Cookbook!)

For the muffins:

  • 7 tablespoons butter (I used salted haha!)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt (don’t use if using salted butter)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

For the topping:

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Place the rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners. Set aside.

To make the muffins, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Keep an eye on the butter. It will melt, froth and begin to crackle. That’s the water cooking out of the butter. The crackling will subside and butter will begin to brown fairly quickly. Remove from heat when butter solids become a medium brown color and butter smells slightly nutty. Immediately pour hot putter into a small bowl or it will continue to cook and possibly burn in the hot saucepan. (I put my pan on a cool marble surface to cool off).

Whisk milk, egg, yolk and vanilla until combined. Add brown butter and whisk to combine.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt (if using) in a medium bowl. Add the milk mixture all at once to the flour mixture and stir gently to combine. Gently but thoroughly fold in the blueberries. Divide batter among prepared muffin cups.

To make the topping: combine all the ingredients in a bowl and rub together with clean fingertips until crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over the muffin batter in cups.

Bake 18-20 minutes until golden and crisp and a skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool muffins in the pan for 15 minutes before removing. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Muffins will last, at room temperature in an airtight container, for up to 3 days. Joy likes them best the day they’re made.

  • Olivia

    I love you and Joy! Such a fab duo. 🙂

  • Emmy

    “It has been baptized with God’s Gold” – perfect! I pre-ordered the book as well, but I have a friend who would also like a copy! (Also, does the copy you’re giving away have purple sharpie notes written in it too? Because that would be awesome!)

  • Amanda

    Ooooo, I want to eat those NOW! I’d also would love to win her cookbook!

  • Sarah

    Those look delicious. I love the addition of the brown butter. I really want her new cookbook. It looks awesome!

  • Angharad

    I love it! Such a lovely ode to your friend. I am really wanting to get my grubby little hands on this cookbook – so thank you for hosting such a rad giveaway!

  • phoebe

    I already have the book–my sister pre-ordered it for me like 5 months ago. But she needs her own copy, and this is the SWEETEST post ever. I am totally entering. You guys both rock.

  • Jen @ Fresh from the...

    Those look awesome. Brown butter=luuurrrve!

  • Dana

    Don’t enter me, just want to say that Joy is coming to Book Larder on March 15th and I will be OUT OF TOWN. So bummed. Yummy muffins!

  • Mallory

    I’m such a sucker for brown butter. I think probably thanks to you and Joy. I’m so glad I found your blog through hers! They are my two go-to blogs now.

  • Irvin @ Eat the Love

    Wait. I want to hear more about the website Casey wrote that tracked the best blueberry muffins near his office in SF. Which one did he decided was best?

    And YAY to brown butter and blueberry muffins! Joy’s cookbook looks sweet (and that’s no pun).

  • Kelly

    Congrats to your friend Joy – that’ so awesome! These muffins look scrumptious!

  • Bethany

    This post made me want to cry! I listen to your podcast and read BOTH of your blogs religiously. And not only do I feel like I know your friendship, but I also feel like we ARE friends! Thanks for the sweet friend-love letter for all of the world to see. Congrats to Joy on such a special day! And cheers to both of you for finding such a dear friendship. 🙂

  • Julia

    These look sooooo good. Have only recently discovered brown butter and will be making these ASAP! can’t wait to get my hands on the cookbook 🙂

  • Karen

    My copy is on its way, but I know a friend who would love it! Can’t wait to get my copy!

  • Julie @BananasForBourbon

    Leave a comment pertaining to what? How gorgeous Joy looks on the cover? How hers is one of the very very few cookbooks I actually want in my possession (I’m more of a food blog reader)? How darn charming I find her and how bananas her baking skills are? I need *direction*!

    Also, my husband is too blueberry muffin obsessed. Not website tracking obsessed. He’s too lazy. But if you asked him his favorite muffin, he’d say blueberry over chocolate. You have no idea how huge that is.

  • lynn

    This recipe looks scrumptious. I’d love to see it and the rest of Joy’s recipes in her new book.

  • Nicole @ The Dirty Oven

    Great blog post totally made me tear up….I know odd. Glad that you have such a great friend.
    Can’t wait to get my hands on the book! Maybe that will give me motivation to get back to baking and blogging.
    Your podcast keeps me going on my commute to work. Having to return after baby #2 was very hard. You guys keep me smiling!

    Now I need a muffin!

  • sara

    so exciting! what a sweet post. of course I am excited about the book, but your girls friendship is a really wonderful thing to share. I am sure your support is just adding to Joy’s elation today. Thanks for the recipe, they look incredible.

  • Danielle

    If it’s possible to fall in love with a muffin, I think I just have. I NEED this book! (I also fell in love with many of the recipes featured in the preview feature on amazon.com…)

  • Michelle

    I WOULD LOVE THE JOY THE BAKER COOKBOOOOOOOOOKKKKK! Oprah voice…duh. P.S. Love your blog. Thanks for all your rocking inspiration!

If I don’t win it, well, another cookbook I will have to go and buy because it looks like a winner!!! 🙂

  • fabiola

    a little story of a comment… I just hung up the phone with my best friend, Elon, who in short has inspired me in many ways Joy has inspired you. None the less, that brought tears to my eyes reading of you friendship. I moved to the Portland, Oregon area one year ago, and I miss my best friend to death. I just read last night Joy will be here in two weeks, I have been a fan of you and hers for sometime now, I would love to high five her and have her sign her magical book. You two are pretty awesome. Thanks for the chance of a giveaway!

  • Jane m

    These blueberry muffins look great!!! Must be a wonderful cookbook.

  • erin @ from city to farm

    Why, HELLO there. I think I definitely have some blueberry stained fingers in my future.

    In my family, blueberry muffins have a funny story. Back when I was living in Brooklyn, I had a 4th generation Italian bakery down the street, amazing — tiny, tiny inside and very, very crowded — shelves upon shelves of fresh muffins, rugelach, baguettes, bagels and more. You had to order and pay quickly to avoid the NYC stink eye.

    Enter my Mom on a visit to the big city…true blood Texan, and very indecisive. Never mind we had to wait in line for 15 min just to get up to the counter…which is PLENTY of time for a decision to be made. But she got up there, had total deer-in-the-headlights look, got the stink eye BIG TIME and stammered “ummmmmm…..blueberry muffin???”

    Best part is…she hates blueberry muffins. 😉

  • Alissa

    These muffins look awesome. I love Joy the Baker and am so glad she wrote a cookbook.

  • haley

    I can’t wait to get this book!!

  • Bailey W.

    My heart skipped a beat when I saw you had BROWN BUTTER blueberry muffins. I didn’t think such a thing existed. I may have freaked out in my kitchen. My roommate might have laughed at me from her room. We will never know if these were true. (They totally were). Then, I kept reading. Of course this would come from Joy! I love both of you guys so much and so excited that Joy’s cookbook is FINALLY out now. I can’t wait to make these for myself. =]

  • Tracy

    Hi Tracy! It’s another Tracy. 🙂 I’d love to win. Just started listening to your podcast and I love to bake (although I’m a beginner). Thanks!!

  • Whitney

    Looks like a delicious recipe. I have Joy’s book on my wishlist!

    I may just be super emotional today but I was getting all teary eyed reading this! I love how good of a friendship you and Joy have. Thanks for sharing it with all of us! Can’t wait to try these muffins 🙂

  • Jenny (VintageSugarcube)

    Yay for Miss Joy… You were the first food blogger I started following a ways back thanks to Miss Frecklewonder, then I discovered Joy! You two are a dynamic-duo!.

  • Kanto

    Ooo! Would love to get the Joy the Baker cookbook! She (and you) seriously inspire me! Now you need to start working on the Shutterbean cookbook…

  • Anna Jackura

    I love that you and Joy both have blogs where y’all love on each other all the time. It’s like I get a secret peek into your friendship! (And I get the added benefit of getting all the best recipes from both).

  • emiko

    oh man….i can’t wait to try these once it’s summer and blueberries are more in season. also, brown butter is amazing…your brown butter frosting (for the pumpkin cake) has earned me lots compliments.

  • Nicolle

    Oh I’d love to win this book. I can only imagine how awesome it is!!

  • Jen

    Listening to the two of you chat about the most random (but totally important) things during the Joy the Baker Podcast is always an incredibly mood-lifting experience. This post was so sweet and just shows how well you guys mesh. I hope you blog some more about other recipes from the book, which I am saving up for and can’t wait to get.

I feel like you’re my friends too even though we’ve never met (just tweeted and shared a Pinterest addiction)…how crazy is that?! Your photos inspired me to do my own #project366 and both you and Joy give me so many brilliant recipe ideas…thank you xxx

  • Danielle C

    Can’t wait to get the book!

  • Julie @SavvyEats

    These muffins look fantastic. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Joy’s book!

  • Molly

    What a very sweet message for Joy. And what wonderful looking muffins. Brown butter makes everything better. Butter in general. I’d LOVE a copy of this cookbook! Also, a huge fan of your podcast. You guys are picking up a following, keep up the wonderful work 🙂

  • Iris R.

    OH MY. This is actually perfect timing because I saw a blueberry muffin recipe on Turntable Kitchen not too long ago and I’ve been craving them since then and not doing anything about it. The brown butter is enough to get my attention (I kind of just want to put brown butter in everything I bake). I have tomorrow morning off so this is happening. Nom nom nom.

    And speaking of amazing friendships, if I won the cookbook I would give it to my bestie. I pre-ordered my own copy the day it was announced, but we’re both obsessed enough with you and Joy that she ought to own a copy too.

  • Jenna

    I love Joy and would loooooove her cookbook!

  • karen

    Joy has brought me many cooking adventures (some more successful than others) but most importantly, she lead me to you Ms. Tracy Shutterbean! Thanks for sharing your friendship via your podcast, and all the goodness that is you and your blog. Much love all around.

  • Ellen W

    I enjoy listening to the two of you each week while I’m out walking off the calories from the great recipes.

  • Angela

    Those look divine and I would love that cookbook!

  • Amanda

  • Sydney

    What a wonderful post! I don’t think I’ve ever wanted a cookbook so badly. I can’t wait to get my hands on one!

  • Johanna

    yum. I will so make these as soon as I’m off my sugar-free cleanse. 🙂 Love it!

  • Jen

    These are the first things of Joy’s I ever made and I about DIED. #favorite

  • Lisa @ Fit in the Midwest

    Would love to win Joy’s cookbook! That recipe looks amazing and I am sure all of the others are too!

  • Lindsay @ The Live-In Kitchen

    These look delicious! I love a good blueberry muffin. I preordered my book ages ago too, but mine won’t come for a few days! I’m so disappointed. I’d love to win an extra anyways!

  • Jachel

    I was just looking for a killer muffin recipe. Score!

  • Erica C.

    These look amazing. I would love to win the cookbook so I could make everything.

  • Jill

    mmmmmmm…brown butter

  • Lindsay

    I love your friendship!

    Oooh, yum. Those look super delightful! I have always loved blueberry muffins but have never made them from scratch before. I will definitely need to make this my first.

    I still haven’t gotten around to ordering her cookbook yet, but hopefully I’ll win one now.

  • Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

    Brown butter makes everything better! God’s Gold indeed. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Joy’s book!

  • Susanne

    Yum! I cannot wait to get this book (that is if I don’t win :))

  • Kimberly

    Oh goodness, this post made me all misty-eyed. I’ve already ordered Joy’s book, but it’d be fun to win a copy for a friend.

    And I can’t wait to try these muffins! I’m not generally much of a muffin person, but these sound irresistable. Browned butter will do that, of course.

  • monster jen

    Oh my goodness. I would LOVE to own this book! Can’t wait to make these muffins, I’ve never ‘browned’ butter before!

  • Michelle M

    Well THOSE look amazing!! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this cookbook!

    OMG, the post is great & the recipe sounds Awesome! I hope to win a copy of Joy’s book!

    Your reminiscing about the your friendship with Joy and your husband’s insane love for blueberry muffins touched a cord in my heart. True love and true friendship collide into a mushy muffin. Purty innit? 🙂

  • Kali

    OMG I am so pumped about this cookbook! Here’s to hoping I win that free copy…if not I’ll be ordering it online ASAP. Also: those muffins look AMAZING and delicious.

    Wow! I am hungry now and I would looooove to bake from Joy’s book 🙂

  • Brenda

    Hi tracy, these muffins look amazing! (never used brown butter before)
    I would love to make them, including all the other recipies!

    I live in Holland.. hoping you can send Joy The Baker to Holland!

  • Advah

    Oh man, I pre-ordered the book ages ago but it’s not out until late March in the UK! This is killing me, I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    Also, I agree with Joy. ‘Moist’ (eugh) makes me shudder.

  • Amanda

    would love to have Joy’s cookbook! Those are some mighty fine looking muffins.

  • Katrina

    These need to be in my belly. I’m in loooove!

  • misschels

    everything is better with brown butter! Those muffins are gorgeous. I need one ASAP!

  • Stacey

    These look fabulous! I would love to win this book

    Those muffins look amazing! This recipe looks like a must-bake to me 🙂 I read Joy’s blog every morning – judging by what I’ve seen there, everything in her cookbook must be delicious 🙂

  • Eileen Rosenberg

    My husband loved blueberry muffins too! I have yet to try working with brown butter (I know!) but I think this would be the perfect recipe for my first attempt!

  • Veronica @ Café con Leche

    ahhh pick me pick me!! i absolutely am dying for her cookbook! brown butter anything has my heart 🙂

  • Carly

    Love your work! Looks delicious:-))

  • Panya

    I’ve a love-hate relationship with blueberries. I have a very vivid memory of eating blueberries & cream with my mom while sitting on the floor of our nearly-empty apartment, watching tennis on a tiny black & white television that was on a wooden folding chair — I was about three years old. Now I like to eat fresh blueberries with string cheese — pop a few blueberries into my mouth, then take a bite of the cheese = yum. But I generally detest blueberry-flavored things. Blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, etc. are usually a no-go for me. Unless I make them myself. Then it’s different somehow.

  • Lauren

    These muffins look divine! I cannot wait to get my hands on Joy’s cookbook. (I have a huge blog-crush on her!)

  • Dee

    Totally teared up while reading this post! Your friendship with Joy is heartwarming. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  • Gaby

    I am so excited for Joy’s cookbook- I wanted it the second she announced it! It was seeing a picture of that infamous cinnamon sugar pull-apart bread that really got me into baking in the first place a little less than a year ago. And now I’m “that girl” in my dorm who bakes all the time. It doesn’t hurt that her writing is also amazing and she manages to sneak some real talk life advice in there every so often- super helpful for a college girl! AND she led me to Shutterbean! 🙂 Thanks for posting this recipe!

  • Joyce

    Oh, this looks incredibly GOOD! I will definitely make these for my birthday party later this month!! (and this book goes on my wish list for sure!)

  • Leslie

    Joy rocks! As do you, Tracy! Hope I win!

  • Moira

    I started reading Joy the Baker a while ago, and she totally introduced me to your blog! I love both of your websites so much, and would adore a Joy the Baker cookbook!!

  • Jess

    My bf also has a strange blueberry muffin obsession. I NEED this cookbook!

  • Erin

    Great post! You two are adorable…as are the muffins!

  • Candy

    Those muffins are just too good looking. I am moving into my first home away from my parents this week, it would be nice to stock the kitchen with one cookbook to help fill the holes of the ones that belong to my mother that I am leaving behind.

  • Sarah

    These look amazing! I need to go home and make them now along with everything else in Joy’s book!

  • Ellen

    holy yum! Casey’s blueberry muffin dedication rivals my boyfriend’s muffin madness. (he also may or may not have a nacho spreadsheet.) He would die over these. I love you two…I read both your blogs and listen to your podcast. Can we be best friends? It’s cool that I live in Virginia right? My birthday is coming up and a Joy the Baker cookbook would be the perfect birthday gift!! (double exclamation points on that). thanks for brightening my mornings!

  • Claire

    I have been so damn excited about Joy’s cook book coming out since she first mentioned it. I love her, and I love you too! I listen to your podcast every single night before bed (that’s kinda weird isn’t it?), for that reason, I’ve listened to every episode like, 15 times. I bloody love it. Just wanted to tell you that.

    And also, blueberry muffins and incredible, and these look like the best of the best.

    Cannot wait to get her book. X

  • Celestine

    MMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmuffins! Now, please and thank you.

  • Lara

    Hi Tracy,

    I would love to win a copy of Joy’s new cookbook. It sounds wonderful and even though I might not be able to eat many of the baked items (unless they are gluten free) I can share them with my family and friends. My son loves to cook so maybe I can just hand it right over to him. I truly enjoy your blog and Joy’s and of course have listened to every episode of the podcast. Have a great day and thanks for all you do.

  • maura

    You and Joy have such beautiful and easy-to-follow photos & recipes for the tastiest treats and most novel combinations. Also both of you have such a positive & fun voice in your writing, which I really appreciate—I am psyched about this cookbook and of course, to continue following your respective blogs.

  • Lyndsay

    I would LOVE a copy of Joy’s cookbook! 🙂 She is amazing…and those muffins look amazing too 🙂

  • Christine

    Ooh pick me! I will wholeheartedly try as many recipes from this book as I possibly can..:)

  • Christina

    I would love to win a copy of Joy’s cookbook. And thank you for sharing this recipe. Blueberry muffins with Browned Butter? My life is now complete.

  • Allison

    Really really can’t wait to see Joys cookbook! Those muffins look delicious!

  • Kelly

    This looks fabulous! i would love a copy of Joy’s cookbook!

  • Amanda M

    I have been waiting for this cookbook for sooo long!

  • Elizabeth

    This definitely is the BEST blueberry muffin recipe out there! I first made these about a month ago and have already made them a second time. They were a huge hit, just like the rest of Joy’s amazing dishes!

  • dani @ yelleBELLYboo

    These muffins look amazing! I’m dying for one of these cookbooks – I hope I win!

  • Rachel

    awesome friendship + muffins = big warm heart

  • Courtney

    browned butter in muffins = delicious !

  • karen

    I am not a muffin baking kind of person but those look good – although I might have to use salted butter too (too much trouble to buy two kinds…) – sorry Joy! 🙂

  • Annette @ CoMo Homestead

    This looks like such a gorgeous cookbook, and a phenomenal recipe! I can’t wait to try it.

  • Nina

    I’ve totally been lurking on Joy the baker and Shutterbean but now is the time to comment! I love you ladies..such a dynamic duo!! And omg this muffin…

  • Mary

    These muffins look delicious!!! They’re going on my short list of things to make soon 🙂

  • Annette

    Oh my GOSH, how I’d love to win! Those blueberry muffins look downright amazing. I’ve been such a fan of you and Joy, and most of all, your podcast together! You are both hilarious and wonderful and make my apartment cleaning days much more pleasant.

  • caroline [surprised by joy]

    These look AAAAAAA-mazing. I do love a good blueberry muffin. How nice of you to give away Joy’s cookbook!

    I listen to your podcast and am trying to introduce all my friends to it. That way, when I want to make jokes about doing an Oprah voice or about how Mondays are hard, someone will actually know what I’m talking about! I live in a tiny studio by myself and I love listening to you two being hilarious and goofy when I’m cooking in my wee little kitchen; it feels like having friends right there with me. And gives me an excuse to drink a glass of wine while cooking in the middle of the day (you know, if friends are over, it’s totally, totally appropriate…)

  • jessica

    such a sweet post! and a delicious looking muffin.

  • Elaina

    Yummmmm these look amazing! I have not baked with brown butter yet but I need to! I also would love this cookbook!

  • Christy

    YUM! Can’t wait to check out Joy’s book 🙂

  • Kasey

    I am loving the love that his happening here. Congratulations to Joy’s success, and to your wonderful and enduring friendship! Oh… and I would love the book as well. No biggie.

  • Christina

    Those look to. die. for. period! Oh my Word! I would love to get a copy of Joy’s cookbook!!!! Love your pictures and that yellow polka dotted plate.. so cute.

  • Beth

    I must have checked my front porch 8 times since yesterday morning, hoping to see a little box with the new cookbook in it! My sister pre-ordered it for me for Christmas, and I’d love to give her a copy as I know it will be totally rad!

  • jenny

    oh my. I am quite a blueberry muffin maniac myself. I have a king arthur recipe on my list to try (it involves golden flax seed meal, so is on the healthier side of the spectrum), but these may have to take the number one slot.

    I am a huge fan of joy’s and have her cookbook on my wish list. but if I won this one, I’d love to share that wish list copy with someone else!

  • Jinger

    I can’t think of a better way of combining my two main internet girl-crushes than winning a Joy the Baker cookbook from Tracy Shutterbean! And I’ve had those brown butter blueberry muffins before…never seen muffins disappear from my kitchen so fast from my kitchen before.

  • Sandra Lea

    Brown butter is amazing stuff, can’t wait to try these muffins. Would love to have a copy of Joy’s cookbook to see what other delectable delights are in there.

  • EmilyKG

    Those look fantastic, I’d love to win a copy of the cookbook. thanks,

  • cynthia

    I love Joy and I adore you and your blog. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jessica @ The Desert Abode

    Haven’t pre-ordered my copy yet, but I’m looking forward to getting this cookbook ASAP!

    These muffins sound utterly wonderful. 🙂

  • caroline w.

    i love you and joy so SO much! would love to win joy’s cookbook too 🙂

  • Megan

    I never preordered a copy and I don’t know why and I have been wondering about how awkward it’s going to be when I go to her book signing without a book… Obviously, I just need to buy one or WIN one!

  • Jessica

    I’ve been dropping hints about this cookbook to my boy since I learned of it and I’m HOPING he got the hint. I have yet to see it on my kitchen table though and would LOVE to add it to my collection. Love you both, thanks for keeping me laughing out loud with your podcasts! LOVE!

  • Elizabeth @ Coppertop Kitchen

    Oh, that’s one of the ones I flagged for must-try-first, too! A dear friend of mine pre-ordered the book for me for my birthday in January, and I have it (YAY! YAY!), and I would LOVE to gift it back to her! 🙂

  • Beth

    Every recipe in Joy’s cookbook made me want to drool … then go make it. I’d love to be able to give a copy to a friend. 🙂

  • Sarah

    I totally have a mental chart ranking blueberry muffins at various establishments in Columbus, Ohio, where I live. Luckily for me, the best is right down the street from my office. That makes me smile that your husband created a website for that- awesome. I look forward to trying Joy’s version here- everything I’ve ever made from one of her recipes has been amazing. I listen to the Joy the Baker podcast at work- I work by myself so I love listening to good podcasts. Listening to you guys banter makes me feel less isolated, and it helps keep me from going crazy being all by myself all day! I’m so happy for Joy that she has this cookbook coming out- I’d love to win it (who doesn’t love winning!) but I’m sure I’ll buy a copy anyway.

  • Sarah S

    I would love a copy to share with a few of my baker friends, mine is in the mail, so I will have to try this recipe when it arrives.

  • ileana

    I would love to win Joy’s book. It’s great listening to both of you on the podcast every week…makes me wish I lived in Cali and we could hang out. 🙂

    My boyfriend is also a blueberry muffin lover. I’ll have to try out this recipe! Thanks!

  • Jessica

    Joy is the reason I found you a few months ago. You are bookmarked in my computer. Last night I bought the ingredients to Kale slaw which I will devour today. My refrigerator is currently sparkling due to a recent post of yours. Consistent inspiration and great ideas and my kind of recipes. Oh, yes. And I just used my brand new juicer: kale, grapefruit, apple, lemon, and ginger. Something else you have shed your lovely light upon. We have so much to thank Joy for.

  • Erin Louise

    I have been dreaming about this cookbook since I first read about it on Joy’s site…however I have to spread out my cookbook purchases so my husband doesn’t spaz out about how they are taking over the house. I will get my hands on this book eventually though!

  • Farah


  • Emily G.

    Everyone in my life needs Joy’s cookbook. I think my husband loves me more since I’ve been reading both shutterbean.com and joythebaker.com. He gets a nomulent meal homemade pretty much every weeknight. I’ve become pretty boss at pancakes, salads and ‘weird’ ingredient cakes on the weekends as well. You guys make me a better person.

  • Kate

    Aww, Joy deserves every glowing post she gets! I love her site and would love to own this cookbook.

  • Rachel

    those muffins look SO AMAZING. i’m craving them now.

  • Becci L.

    I can’t wait to try these!

    Of course I would love to win a copy of the cookbook….it is next on my wishlist to purchase from Amazon when I get a little extra $$$!

    I love the two of you together; so funny and entertaining. The podcasts are great! I have to get my hands on one of these cookbooks!

  • Erin

    I’d love to share a copy of Joy’s cookbook with a friend, and of course can’t wait for mine to arrive! Tracy Shutterbean + Joy the Baker = Awesome.

  • Lexi

    I am making these asap!

  • Ashley

    Joy has done it again. I actually stumbled upon your blog through her about a year ago, and between the two of you, I have endless recipes book marked. I have ordered a book for myself, but a friend of mine who has recently discovered the wonderful world of Joy would be tickled if I showed up on her doorstep with a copy of this bad boy.

    It’s so nice to see ladies inspiring other ladies! Keep doin’ what you’re doin’!

  • Andrea

    The book looks beautiful (and delicious)!! I’d love to have a copy!!

    I would love a copy!! I can’t wait to make this recipe too, I looooove browned butter

  • Bethany

    I am so excited about this book. My kitchen is filled with the recipe books of Alton Brown, all marked up with bits of food and pencil markings. I can’t wait to add this book in all of it’s Joy-ness to the collection.

  • amy

    These look amazing! I’m so proud of Joy, too. And I only know her in my computer! I can’t wait to have her book in my hands. And my kitchen!

  • Katerina

    Ha ha! Did you expect 200+ comments?! I enjoy your podcasts (by the way maybe it’s time to find a name that includes both of you for podcast title. just saying..), they make the gloomy crisis-atmosphere here in Athens (Greece) less gloomy. Thanks for both of your charming and happy voices that out here and make me laugh! I wish you the success you want with your blog too.

  • Elizabeth

    This looks delicious! I’ll have to try it!

    And Pick me pick me!

  • Kerri

    It looks like a great cookbook and I’d love a copy! The muffins look moist (yes, gross word) and amazing!

  • katie

    Now THAT is a blueberry muffin recipe that I can get behind. Sounds delish and I can’t wait to try it. Would love to have the book as well!

  • fusilliamy

    I can’t even remember how many times I’ve made these muffins. As soon as I read the early recipe for these on her blog I rushed to the store and bought blueberries. And then went back to the store 2 hrs later to buy more blueberries for more batches. They are my go to baked item now or the thing I make when I need to cheer myself up. And now I want to ditch work to go home and make some!

  • Alexa

    Happy Leap Day! These muffins look super bomb. I still have yet to brown butter, but I feel like that is something which needs to happen soon…

  • Becky Back

    These look insane!!!! LOVE it, can’t wait to try them myself! Even if I don’t win a copy I know the purchase will be totally worth it!

  • dawn

    Aww such a warm and lovely post 🙂 Is the competition open to everyone? I’m in the UK, and the UK Amazon is saying I can’t have it until the 22nd March, I’m feeling a bit left out! 🙂 It is on my wishlist though, it looks gorgeous!! 🙂

  • Lauren

    I have fallen in love with Joy the Baker and Shutterbean!
    Best new addition to the new world I have discovered in PodCasts that have me hooked!
    I think these ladies are simply the greatest women on the planet no joke and I would LOVE to have my hands on that cookbook.

    I love those muffins they look like the best ones ever!

  • Stephanie C.

    This recipe is perfect timing as blueberries are on sale this week. I bake according to what is on sale for the week. I hope Joy had the big opening day as she deserves.

    Food blogs are my love language and yours and Joys are at the top of the pile. My mornings will be made better with these divine looking muffins, my Fridays are made better with your lists, my work days go by faster with yours and Joys podcasts and my Amazon wish list has been made better with the Joy the Baker cookbook. Thanks for this post. Real talk.

  • Tagati

    OMG! I’m drooling over these!!!

    Great give away.

  • Tempa

    You don’t even know. This post made my whole day! Real talk. I have my JTB cookbook and I love, LOVE, LOVE it, but I’d also love to give one to a friend! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. I just adore the two of you and look forward to your podcasts each and every week. Thanks again!

  • Karly W

    Just purchased one for my friend for their birthday! Scoring one for myself would just be so…karmic….idk did I just cancel it out by asking for one?
    Whatevs! Joy & Tracy are awesome!

  • Baking Serendipity

    I have a thing for browned butter, for muffins and for friendship. Love you and Joy!

  • laura

    this sounds fantastic! i’m making them this weekend.

  • Carla

    Dang those muffins look YUM, must make them as soon as I can manage. Love blueberries to bad they are so expensive over here!

  • Michelle Wheal

    For about a month I’ve been hooked on your blog, ever since I stumbled on to it. I love the way you present it and the photos… The kitchen has not seen me this much in years or… ever! How great it would be to be part of the competition and magically own a Joy the Baker cookbook, but since I live in Germany I guess I’ll miss out, duh. The blueberries are in the kitchen waiting for the brown butter dough.

  • Amanda

    Those muffins look absolutely amaaaaazing!!!

  • Marian

    I’d like a copy please! I love her recipes and need something for her to sign when she visits Seattle!

  • Mary

    I would love to check out Joy’s cookbook!

  • Katheryn

    These look so good. I would love to have Joy’s cookbook!

  • Jennifer P

    This is the 3rd time today I have seen this cook book mentioned within the various blogs I read!! With so many great food writers praising this book I know it must be good!!

  • ShaSha

    Oh la la! I’ll have to try making these. 🙂

  • Allie

    Full faith that cookbook and me would make great friends 🙂

  • Kate

    I’m sad to say I’ve been reading yours and Joy’s blogs and have never made anything with browned butter. What is wrong with me? I don’t know. Wait, was that rhetorical? Anyway… would love a copy of the cookbook so I can finally start browning me some butter!

  • Karleen

    I love you and Joy’s friendship too. It gets me through my week. And these do look like the best blueberry muffins ever. I can’t wait to get this book in my hands!!!

  • Mary

    I love your friendship bracelet!

    stellar giveaway too!

  • Stephie @ Eat Your Heart Out

    I’m SO ANNOYED because for some reason there was a Barnes/Noble glitch and my copy still hasn’t shipped. And I was so excited to read it the day it came out! I’m so glad you shared this recipe, at least now I feel like I’m getting my “fix” until my copy arrives!

  • Megan - Newly Wife

    Awesome! I would love to win a copy. I listen to your podcasts when I run and sometimes find myself talking back to you guys (once I stop laughing). I think I need to call in and leave a message, soon! Thanks for sharing her cookbook with us!!

    Ps. Those muffins look bomb!!

  • kim

    oooooh man! I want those muffins AND the cookbook, obvi.

    Awww this post is all kinds of awesome! I’m still in college (transitioning to law school) and every thursday evening with the week finally winding down I take some downtime to listen to the Joy the Baker podcast while trying to whip up a recipe from one of your sites! Love the fact that you and Joy are real women working hard and loving life while inspiring others, very few can pull that off! Keep it up – so proud of Joy’s Book and how sincere your support is! Again, so inspiring!

  • Nicole @ bread and silk

    Can’t say that I’ve ever anticipated a cookbook more than this one. I’m dying that I still haven’t received mine yet though I pre-ordered as soon as word got out! Hope mine arrives before the signing in Huntington Beach this Saturday, but I would love another copy for my daughter or for a special friend.

  • jackie @ marin mama cooks

    I love all Joy’s recipes and I am definitely wanting a copy of her cookbook. You have to support the blogging community. I have bought all of Heidi’s books and I plan on buying Joy’s as well as Deb’s from the Smitten Kitchen. I have a best friend who is a huge sweet tooth so I am going to pick her up a copy as well.

    I love when cookbooks get baptized with food. It makes them looked loved and used. I have had this happen to a few library cookbooks though, oops!

    Congratulations on these amazing & mouthwatering muffins and to Joy on her cookbook.

    xo, Jackie

I wandered over here after listening to a few of your podcasts which I love to put on in the background while I sew or bake because it’s like there are two funny friends in my apartment. Love it.
    I would also love her cookbook. It has been on my amazon wishlist for awhile!

  • Jules

    I would love a copy! I’ve been listening to yours and Joy’s podcasts for the last week or so, just catching up from the very beginning since I had never checked them out before. I listen to them as I take my dog for walks around the neighborhood, as I cook dinner (I know you wouldn’t listen while cooking!) and since my husband has had to work late this week, I’ve been listening to you gals while I eat dinner. It feels just like having dinner with my girlfriends! I just laugh hysterically at all of your silly voices, random musings and funnily-pronounced words, and I love that I understood all of your inside jokes from this post. Thanks for YOUR great recipes too, Tracy from Shutterbean!

  • Christianne

    I would totally love another copy of joy’s book. My mom would love it when I go away to college!

    I thought I was being all brilliant by prepping everything the night before so I could casually throw everything together in the morning and “effortlessly” pop out muffins for breakfast. Uh….and forgot that butter, whether browned or not, totally congeals when back in the fridge! Ack! All was not lost, popped the butter (that had floated to the top of the liquids anyway) in a low temp micro session for a few seconds, mixed it all back in, and moved on. It worked!

    But next time, I’m going to have to remember to leave the butter browning for the am. Ridiculous.

    I know that I’m a little late to the game with this comment, but I just made these muffins for a breakfast potluck and they were such a hit. These are officially my go to blueberry muffin recipe now. Thanks for sharing!
