Blueberry Muffins Recipe

These quick and easy blueberry muffins are super tender, moist, and soft! They make a great dessert or a snack on the go.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Bake Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 & 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries * see notes

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line a 12 count muffin tin with paper cups, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combiner your sugar, milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt to the wet ingredients. Mix together until just incorporated. Take care not to over mix or the muffins can end up dense! Gently fold in your blueberries.
  • Using 2 spoons or a large ice cream scoop, portion out the batter into 12, standard sized muffin tins. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean of any batter. Cool slightly before serving.

Notes

* Both fresh and frozen blueberries work perfectly here. If using frozen blueberries, add them to your batter while they're fresh from the freezer. They tend to loose their shape if they're defrosted before being mixed into the muffin batter. 
Freezing Instructions: To freeze blueberry muffins, place them into a large freezer bag. Push out as much air from the bag as possible and seal well. Freeze for up to 2 months.
Defrosting Instructions (oven): To defrost frozen blueberry muffins, set out at room temperature for a few hours or in the fridge overnight. Before serving, I recommend arranging them on a baking sheet and heating them in a 350°F oven for about 5 to 10 minutes to warm through. You can also defrost them in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes.
Reheating (microwave): To warm muffins in the microwave, remove the paper wrapper (if used) and place on a microwave safe bowl. Heat on high heat for about 15 to 30 seconds. If still not warm, heat on 10 second intervals until warm.
