Best Blueberry Muffins

Jump to Recipe Comment

The best blueberry muffins recipe ever! Made with fresh blueberries and a crumb topping, these homemade muffins are so soft and sweet you’ll think you just picked them up from the bakery.

Muffins might be my favorite things to bake because I love having them in the morning with a hot breakfast.  They go perfectly with a stack of Fluffy Pancakes, a Breakfast Casserole or a thick Belgian Waffle.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Simply put, these blueberry muffins are to die for!  Several months ago I went to a baby shower brunch for a friend and the hostesses made the most delicious blueberry muffins I have ever had. (Which says a lot, ’cause I am a huge fan of blueberry muffins!) She emailed me this easy recipe a week later and I’ve already made them for my family four times!

I just love the extra flavor and texture of the cinnamon crumb topping on these blueberry muffins – it is so delicious!! PLUS, these muffins are super simple to make and with the exception of the fresh blueberries, the ingredient list is made up of things I always happen to have on-hand! Easy and delicious blueberry muffins… what are you waiting for? Let’s get baking!

How To Make Blueberry Muffins

  1. Prepare – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  2. You can either line the muffin pan with adorable cupcake liners or grease the pan with non-stick cooking spray
  3. Muffin Mix – In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder
  4. Place the vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup
  5. Add the egg into the measuring cup and then just enough milk to fill the cup
  6. Pour everything in the measuring cup into the flour mixture
  7. Gently fold in the blueberries but be careful not to over mix
  8. Fill the muffin tin with the batter and then set aside
  9. Crumb Topping – Mix the butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon together using a fork
  10. Sprinkle the cinnamon crumb mixture over the top of the muffins
  11. Cook – Bake the muffins for 20 – 25 minutes

Baking Tips

Don’t Over Mix – Be careful not to over mix the blueberry muffin ingredients when you’re stirring everything together.  If you over mix, the muffins won’t be as fluffy.  If they turn out dense, then you probably over mixed the batter.

Allow To Cool Outside The Muffin Tin – Once you can safely remove the muffins from the muffin tin, transfer them to a cooling rack to finish cooling.  If you don’t transfer them to the rack, they will continue to cook inside the tin which will cause them to over cook and dry out.

How Do I Make Mini Muffins – You can use this recipe to make mini muffins but you will need to adjust the cooking time down.  The time will vary based on the size of the mini muffin tin but I typically cut the cook time in half.  Just be sure to keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries – Yes, you can but the frozen blueberries have a tendency to have the colors run more than fresh blueberries.  Just be careful how much you fold the blueberries into the batter to minimize the amount they will run.
