What makes a good blueberry muffin?

Fresh ingredients and a bit of cooking technique make for tender and flavorful blueberry muffins. For many muffin recipes, you will need to combine your dry ingredients separately from the wet ingredients.

When you do combine the dry and the wet ingredients it is important not to overmix the batter. If you overmix the batter the muffins will be tough.

Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make fresh blueberry muffins:

  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Eggs
  • Buttermilk
  • Unsalted butter
  • Vanilla
  • Fresh blueberries

How to Make Blueberry Muffins

Making muffins is an easy process. Here’s what to do:

  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the center of the mixture.
  • Add eggs, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. Stir until just combined.
  • Gently fold in blueberries.
  • Fill muffin cups and sprinkle sugar on top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

Should you use a paper lining when making muffins?

It is absolutely not necessary to use a paper lining, but you must be sure to grease the muffin tin well when baking muffins. Yes, paper linings look lovely, and they can help protect the delicate pastry. If you don’t happen to have any on hand, you can feel comfortable in preparing muffins without paper linings.

    The recipe was great! My 8-year-old daughter and I followed it to the letter. She did most of the work well I supervised ; )They actually turned out big and gorgeous just like the bakery. They were in the oven for 30 mins exactly. I think we both agree they could use som7e lemon zest and juice for added flavor. Took a picture but can’t upload here.. picture perfect! Thanks

    Please correct instructions – the recipe makes 24 muffins, not 12. Also, cook time is misquoted. At 22 minutes, muffins were barely stable. Golden brown took approximately 8 – 10 minutes more.

    This recipe did not work for me either. Took 38 minutes to cook through, never really turned brown though. Batter is dense and not sweet at all.

    I made this exact recipe from the Magnolia House Bakery cookbook and they were moist and tasty, but the batter itself was slightly bland. I think next time I might add a bit of lemon zest or cinnamon to the batter for a bit more flavor.

    I made these muffins today and was very disappointed.

    The recipe says not to over bake them but they still took twice as long to bake and still came out with no color and tasting like a biscuit. I did not want to make scones I wanted muffins.

    Not a good recipe in general.

      I am really sorry these didn’t work out for you. They are good, one thought that I have may have been your baking powder may have been inactive. It sounds like they didn’t lift like they should have. The levening agents in here would have been the baking powder, eggs, and the buttermilk. It sounds like something wasn’t as active as it should have been.
