Ever since high school, I have always had an absolute love of fresh blueberry muffins with piping hot coffee and this is always a great pick me up treat to brighten my day.
What you need to make simple blueberry muffins
- 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup milk (whole or buttermilk works well)
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 and 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (if using frozen, do not thaw)
How to make this blueberry muffin recipe
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease the muffin cups.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
In another bowl, beat together the oil (or melted butter), egg, milk, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.
Gently fold in the blueberries until evenly distributed in the batter.
Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs (avoid poking into a blueberry). The tops should be golden brown.
Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, you can enjoy your delicious homemade blueberry muffins!
