Easy to Make Blueberry Muffins Recipe

A batch of freshly baked warm muffins is the best way to start your day! Am I right bakers?

Muffin recipes are mostly quick, easy to make and easy to experiment with.

When making Blueberry Muffins, you cannot miss trying this fantastic recipe! I’m sure you will love to have it every day with your tea or coffee!!

Why is this recipe best, you’ll ask? These Muffins are made differently from the usual all-in-one mixing method. In the rubbing method, dry ingredients are rubbed with cold butter using just fingertips till you get a sandy texture. This ensures that gluten in the flour is not activated too much, and the final texture of the muffins remains fluffy and cakey.

How are the taste and texture of the muffins?

These are wholesome juicy muffins with sugary crumble on top. They are soft, and the burst of fresh blueberries with a crumbly top gives the best muffin-tasting experience!

What are the important ingredients used in the recipe?

Egg-the egg in this recipe gives a very soft texture to the Muffins. It adds enough moisture to make them fluffy and moist.

Buttermilk-buttermilk definitely helps in locking the moisture in the Muffins. Reacting with baking soda adds carbon dioxide to the batter, which helps in making the Muffins soft.

Lemon zest– the addition of lemon zest enhances the overall taste of these Muffins. Lemon and blueberries are one of the best pairs to work with.

Blueberries-it’s important you use fresh blueberries. They can be expensive but are way better than frozen blueberries as they are more juicy. They must be coated with flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom.

How do I make Blueberry Muffins not soggy?

Ans. The Muffins can get soggy if the blueberries get sunk at the bottom. To prevent that from happening, you must coat the blueberries with flour before adding them to the batter.

Should I chop blueberries for Muffins?

Ans. No, you don’t need to chop them, as they would burst naturally in the oven while baking.

Should blueberries be washed before baking?

Ans. Yes, thoroughly wash them and then pat them dry.

How long can I store Blueberry Muffins?

Ans. At room temperature, the Muffins can be kept in an airtight box for 3-4 days.

Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh blueberries?

Ans. For the best results, I recommend using fresh blueberries. However, there can be times when they are not available. In such a situation, you can use frozen blueberries too (do not thaw them).
