Description

This is the best blueberry muffins recipe! The muffins come out tall, fluffy and golden, with an irresistibly sweet fruity flavor.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries*
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Turbinado sugar, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or add muffin cup papers.
  2. Wash and dry the blueberries. 
  3. Make the batter: In a large bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the eggs, then whisk in the honey, vegetable oil, yogurt, milk and apple cider vinegar until smooth. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula until a thick, smooth batter forms. Fold the blueberries into the batter with a spatula. 
  4. Scoop the batter evenly into the muffin cups: the cups will be full to the top, using about a heaping 1/4 cup per muffin. Sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar (or additional granulated sugar).
  5. Bake: Bake the muffins for 18 to 20 minutes, until puffed and golden and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a rack to cool fully, about 1 hour. Eat immediately or they taste even better the next day after storage in a sealed container at room temperature. Store up to 4 days in a sealed container at room temperature, refrigerated up to 1 week or more (allow to come to room temperature before serving), or frozen up to 3 months.

Notes

*Frozen blueberries can bleed into the batter and make it turn purple in color! If you’d like to use frozen berries, we recommend rinsing them well and patting them dry with paper towels per these instructions from King Arthur Baking.
