Ingredients

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease the wells with butter or cooking spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir with a rubber spatula until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

  5. Gently fold in the blueberries, being careful not to crush them.

  6. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin wells, filling each about 2/3 full.

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.

  8. Remove the muffin tin from the oven and place it on a cooling rack. Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer them to the cooling rack to cool completely.

  9. Once cooled, serve and enjoy these delicious homemade Blueberry Muffins!

Note

Tips and Variations:
  • For an extra burst of flavor, add a teaspoon of lemon zest to the batter.
  • Toss the fresh or frozen blueberries with a tablespoon of flour before adding them to the batter. This will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Add a crumb topping by combining 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons of cold butter. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to mix until crumbly, then sprinkle it over the muffin batter before baking.
  • You can replace the buttermilk with an equal amount of plain yogurt or sour cream for a tangy twist.
  • Substitute half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour for added fiber and a nuttier flavor.
  • Add a touch of warmth with a pinch of ground cinnamon or nutmeg to the dry ingredients.
  • Serve the muffins warm with a pat of butter or a drizzle of honey for extra indulgence.
Serving Suggestions:
  • Enjoy the Blueberry Muffins as a delicious breakfast or brunch treat alongside a cup of hot coffee or tea.
  • Serve them as part of a brunch spread with other baked goods, such as scones and cinnamon rolls.
  • Pack them in lunchboxes or enjoy them as an on-the-go snack.
  • Serve the muffins as a dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Allergen Information:
  • Blueberry Muffins typically contain common allergens such as dairy (butter and milk), eggs, and gluten (wheat flour). Individuals with allergies or dietary restrictions should opt for allergen-free alternatives or carefully choose recipes that cater to their needs.
Wine or Drink Pairing:
  • Blueberry Muffins pair wonderfully with a range of beverages that complement their sweet and fruity flavors. Consider serving them with a cup of hot coffee, a glass of cold milk, or a fruity herbal tea.
Storage and Leftovers:
  • Blueberry Muffins are best enjoyed fresh, straight from the oven or within a day or two of baking. To maintain their texture and flavor, store them in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • If you have leftover muffins, you can freeze them for longer-term storage. Wrap each muffin individually in plastic wrap, place them in a freezer-safe container, and freeze for up to three months.
  • To reheat frozen muffins, simply microwave them for a few seconds or warm them in a preheated oven at a low temperature until they're heated through. Serve warm and enjoy the comforting flavors of homemade blueberry muffins anytime.
