Plus, muffins are just great on the go. Ok, enough about that, let’s make some muffins!
How To Make This Easy Blueberry Muffin Recipe
Make the batter. First things first, you mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Let the batter rest. Hear me out. You have to let it rest for 1 hour, covered, at room temperature if you want those pretty domed muffin tops. I KNOW. No one likes to wait. I’m definitely in that department. But when I see these pretties come out of the oven, I know they were totally worth the wait.
Transfer the batter into a prepared nonstick muffin pan. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Divide batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin, filling each muffin cup almost to the top.
Bake the muffins at high temp and then reduce the temp. Place the muffin tin in the oven and immediately turn down the heat to 350 degrees F. The initial high heat activates the leaveners (baking soda/baking powder) to create those pretty domed muffins. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the muffins comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes.
Can you use fresh blueberries in muffins?
Yes! You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in muffins. It’s a great way to use up any leftover blueberries you may have in the fridge.
How do you keep blueberries from sinking in muffins?
Tossing the blueberries in 1/2 tablespoon of all-purpose flour before adding them to the batter will keep them from sinking when they are in the oven.
How do you keep homemade blueberry muffins moist?
After letting the muffins cool completely, transfer them to an airtight container or resealable bag to keep them moist. After 2 days at room temperature, you can place the muffins in a freezer bag in the freezer for up to 2 months.
