How to Make the Best Blueberry Muffins

This easy recipe comes together quickly and bakes into a beautiful, bakery style blueberry muffin every time!

  • Preheat oven to 375º F. You’ll want a well balanced heat in your oven so that your muffins rise rapidly and the inside is cooked perfectly when the outside of the muffin is golden brown.
  • Prep your muffin pan by spraying the cups of the pan with baking spray, such as Baker’s Joy, or by buttering and lightly flouring each cup of the muffin pan.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt.
  • Toss blueberries in flour to coat them to prevent them from sinking as baking.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Stir in the flour mixture and then add the milk until just combined.
  • Fold in the blueberries and any optional mix-ins. Spoon muffin batter into prepared muffin pan. Top each with sugar.
  • Bake until golden brown. Allow to cool and then remove from the pan and serve.

How to Keep Blueberries from Sinking?

To prevent your blueberries from sinking to the bottom of your blueberry muffins as they bake, simply toss the blueberries in a bit of all purpose flour to coat them. Then, gently fold them into your muffin batter. The muffin will then bake into a beautiful muffin with blueberries throughout.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries in My Blueberry Muffins?

When in season, I prefer to use sweet, fresh blueberries in this recipe. But I absolutely also love to use frozen blueberries when fresh blueberries are out of season. They have been frozen at the peak freshness, making this recipe perfect to use year round!

Optional Mix-Ins

For these blueberry muffins, I love to include freshly grated orange rind. The fresh citrus pairs perfectly with the blueberries and makes the flavors of the muffin even more delicious! I’ve included a short list of optional mix-ins that you might like to include:

  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds

How to Store Blueberry Muffins

Once your muffins have cooled completely, they should be stored at room temperature underneath a cake dome for 3 to 4 days.

Can You Freeze Blueberry Muffins?

You can also freeze your muffins by placing the cooled muffins into freezer safe containers and then freezing for up to 3 months. To serve, simply remove from the freezer and allow to thaw completely before freezing.
