Cooking times always vary depending on many factors, true oven temperature, elevation, indoor temperature, etc. So use your best judgement on when the muffins are done. They will be golden brown on the outside.
Always use whole ingredients like whole butter, organic eggs, real vanilla extract. 
We use King Arthur flour to make these blueberry muffins.
