Ok so for anyone still here, (hi mom!) Jordan Marsh was a department store based in Boston from about the 1860s through the 1990s. It’s downtown location came complete with an in-store bakery and it’s star of the show was this epic blueberry muffin. A department store with a bakery? Well the concept isn’t that strange…many Bloomingdales showcase a Magnolia Bakery inside, and perhaps you’ve heard of the famous Neiman Marcus cookies!
Their blueberry muffins were elite, giving a sense of sophistication to hungry customers. The allure was in the gorgeous golden brown exterior, the sugary nutmeg topping, and the generous height of the muffin top. It’s special, it’s not your average blueberry muffin. So it’s no wonder that the Jordan Marsh recipe has a devoted fan base.

Now here’s a bit of recipe nostalgia for ya! My mom had the printed recipe saved for proof this is the real Jordan March recipe!
Not only are these the best blueberry muffin you’ll ever make, these are also easy to make! If you ever made any muffin before, these are no more complex than that. Combine the dry ingredients, beat the butter with the sugar and eggs, mix together, add blueberries, then bake.
HOW TO STORE THE MUFFINS
When it comes to baking with fresh fruit you can leave the treat covered on the counter at room temperature for a day or so, but then it’s time to refrigerate to keep them fresh longer and ensure there’s no bacteria growth in the fruit.
HOW TO REWARM MUFFINS
If you had to pop these in the fridge you can still have that warm fresh from the oven taste. Heat your oven to 350 degrees then heat the muffins for 7 minutes. Like fresh baked muffins every morning!
