History behind the term 'Blueberry Muffin'


The Introduction of Muffins

Muffins were first introduced to the world in 1685, when they were documented in a British cookbook. These early muffins were made with yeast and resembled the modern-day English muffin rather than their sweet American counterparts.


The Appearance of the Term 'Muffin'

The term 'muffin' made its first appearance in American literature in 1796. Amelia Simmons, an early American cookbook author, included a recipe for muffins in her book 'American Cookery,' which was the first known cookbook written by an American author.


The Creation of the Blueberry Muffin

The creation of the blueberry muffin is often attributed to Fannie Farmer, an influential American culinary expert. In 1851, Farmer published 'The Boston Cooking School Cookbook,' which included a recipe for blueberry muffins. This marked the beginning of the blueberry muffin's rise to popularity.


The Commercialization of Blueberry Muffins

In the early 1900s, with the advent of commercially packaged baking mixes, blueberry muffins became even more accessible and gained widespread popularity. The convenience of pre-packaged mixes allowed home cooks to easily whip up a batch of delicious blueberry muffins.


National Blueberry Muffin Day

National Blueberry Muffin Day was established on July 11, 1968, to celebrate this delightful baked good. It provides an opportunity for people to indulge in and appreciate the sweet and tangy flavors of blueberry muffins.
