  • Brown Sugar: Provides moisture and richness as well as a subtle caramelized flavor.

  • Vanilla Sugar: Provides sweet, aromatic vanilla essence to enhance the flavor of the muffins.
  • Butter: Adds moisture and body to muffins for a delicate texture.
  • Milk: Provides moisture and helps to create a smooth batter.
  • Salt: Helps to balance the sweetness of the muffins and to enhance the overall flavor.

Chef Recipe Tips:

  • It is important to fill the muffin tins with ⅔ of the dough so that when the dough rises, it looks aesthetically pleasing.
  • You can add your favorite spices (cardamom, ginger, cinnamon) to the batter.
  • Blueberries can be used frozen or fresh.

How to Store Blueberry Muffins

To properly store blueberry muffins, first line an airtight container with paper towels. Then, arrange the muffins in a single layer in the container. To prevent excess moisture, add a few saltines to the container. Close the lid and store the container at room temperature for up to four days. This will ensure that your blueberry muffins stay fresh and tasty.

Can You Freeze Blueberry Muffins?

Blueberry muffins freeze well if wrapped individually in storage wrap and placed in a freezer-safe container. Freeze for up to two months and thaw at room temperature or in the microwave.

A huge amount of sugar (there's practically as much sugar as flour here) automatically excludes this muffin recipe from the list of healthy desserts. The combination of sugar with white flour makes these muffins a true carbohydrate bomb (and we're not talking about beneficial complex carbohydrates here), so I cannot recommend this dessert even to those looking to gain weight. It would be much wiser to find healthier alternatives to nutritious and beneficial desserts. However, if you want to make these muffins in a healthier version, you can replace the sugar with a natural zero-calorie sugar substitute (such as a blend of stevia and erythritol), and the regular white flour with any whole grain flour.

This recipe for blueberry muffins yields eight extra large and delicious breakfast muffins with a sugary cinnamon crumb topping. To achieve an extra-generously sized, deli-style muffin, I usually double the recipe and fill the muffin cups just to the top. If you prefer, you can add additional blueberries to the mix.

Watch How To Make It

For an extra pop of freshness, try tossing the blueberries in a tablespoon of flour before folding them into the batter. This helps to prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffins during baking, ensuring an even distribution of those delicious fruity bursts in every bite. Additionally, feel free to customize the streusel topping by adding a handful of chopped nuts or oats for added texture. It's a simple yet effective way to make these blueberry muffins uniquely yours!
