This Starbucks Blueberry Muffin recipe lets you recreate the cafe’s delicious streusel-topped muffins at home for a fraction of the cost!
No One Has Time to Bake in the Morning!
Just because getting out of bed at 3 AM to bake is out of the question, don’t let that stop you from enjoying warm blueberry muffins for breakfast. These blueberry muffins freeze and reheat beautifully.
To freeze, let the blueberry muffins cool down to room temperature on a wire rack. Once cooled, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and put them in a single layer in a freezer-safe container. This container will help prevent them from being crushed and provide another layer of protection against freezer burn. Muffins can last in the freezer for up to three months.
To reheat the muffins, unwrap the muffins and let them thaw on the counter. Now you have several options to consider depending on how much time you have.
The quickest is simply reheating in the microwave. This method may be the fastest, but you will definitely be sacrificing quality. Still, if you are in a rush, it is better than going hungry. Put the muffin on a plate and cover it with a damp paper towel. Heat on high for 25 seconds.
Perhaps the most common way to reheat muffins is in the oven. While the muffins are thawing on the counter, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place the thawed muffins back in the muffin tin you used to bake them. Sprinkle a little water on top of the muffins and wrap the top of the tin with aluminum foil. Bake for about 20 minutes.
A much faster method than an oven that delivers better results than a microwave is using an air fryer. Preheat your air fryer to 300 degrees and pop in the thawed and unwrapped muffins. You don’t need to cover the muffins with aluminum foil or add any water. Cook for about 3 minutes.
Tips for Baking This Starbucks Blueberry Muffin Recipe
- Use fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe. If you are using frozen ones, thaw them in a colander in the sink. Pat the berries dry before adding to the recipe.
- Slightly underbake any blueberry muffins you plan to freeze and use later. After lowering the temperature to 375 degrees, bake for 5-10 minutes, not the 10-15 minutes as directed in the recipe below. Doing this is especially useful if you plan on using the oven reheating method.
- Stop the blueberries from sinking to the bottom. If you find the berries fall to the bottom of your muffins, sprinkle them with a bit of flour before adding them to the batter. Coating the blueberries in flour will also stop them from bleeding into the batter and staining it.
- Keep muffins from getting soggy with crackers. Add a few saltine crackers to the container you are storing your muffins to soak up any humidity.
