Homemade Blueberry Muffins

Homemade Blueberry Muffins Recipe

I love having fresh muffins for breakfast, especially homemade blueberry muffins. There is just something about waking up in the morning and having a fresh, homemade muffin to go along side my coffee, it just makes the morning that much better.

These homemade blueberry muffins are soft, buttery, and loaded with blueberries. I also love the cinnamon crumble topping which gives these muffins a sweet, crunchy topping that is to die for.

Homemade Blueberry Muffins Recipe

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

 MAKE YOUR OWN BUTTERMILK: I love using buttermilk in my muffin recipes because it makes the muffins super soft and tender, just how everyone loves them. But if you don’t have buttermilk in your fridge, no worries. You can simply make your own homemade buttermilk with only two simple ingredients. All you will need is some milk and lemon juice. I have posted a step-by-step guide on how to make homemade buttermilk here, it’s super simple!

SCOOPING THE BATTER: I like to use an ice cream scooper to fill the muffin batter into each muffin tin. It makes it super easy and you know that each muffin will be the same size.

LETTING THE MUFFINS COOL: After the muffins have baked, don’t let the muffins “cool” in the hot muffin pan. After about 5 minutes take the muffins out of the muffin pan and place them on a wire rack to cool for another 5-10 minutes. Keeping the muffins in the muffin pan too long will lead to dry, overcooked muffins.

Ingredients:

MUFFINS:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 (1 stick) cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, plus 1/4 cup to press on top
CRUMBLE:
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened

Directions:

PRE-STEP: Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Lightly spray 12 muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray or line with muffin liners.

STEP 1: In a medium bowl, whisk together  flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

STEP 2: In a large bowl, using an electric or stand mixer combine brown sugar, butter, egg, vanilla extract, and buttermilk, mix until combined.

STEP 3: Mix flour mixture until just combined. MUFFIN BATTER WILL BE THICK! 

STEP 4: Gently, fold in blueberries.

MAKE THE CRUMBLE:

STEP 5:  In a small bowl, mix together  sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter until mixture becomes crumbly. Set aside.

STEP 6: Using an ice cream scooper, scoop muffin batter into prepared muffin tins.Sprinkle each muffin with the crumb mixture. Using the 1/4 cup of the blueberries you have leftover, press a few of them into the tops of each muffin.

STEP 7: Bake at 425F for 5 minutes. Keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the oven temperature to 350F and continue to bake for 12-15 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

STEP 8:  Let muffins cool for 5-10 minutes before enjoying!

NOTES:

*STORE: In an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Muffins can be frozen for up to 3 months.

* DON'T HAVE BUTTERMILK? No problem, you can make homemade buttermilk with just a few simple ingredients. Click here for my step-by-step guide and recipe on how to make homemade buttermilk!

    I made these muffins tonight and they are amazing! I usually don’t leave reviews but I just loved how these turned out. Thank you for posting this!

  3. Jessica — March 4, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    Looks delish! What would be the cooking time and temp if I used a mini muffin pan? I’d love to make these for my 1.5 year old daughter. Thanks! 🙂

    • Jenn — March 7th, 2016 @ 2:45 pm

      Cooking time and oven temp would stay the same. I would just check your muffins at around 10 minutes because every oven is different. Enjoy! 🙂

    Can Almond or Soy milk be substituted for the buttermilk? I am looking for an awesome muffin recipe for a brunch I’m doing on Sunday, but my husband and daughter are allergic to dairy. I already use Nucoa butter, but if buttermilk is key to this recipe… so any tips for that would be appreciated!

    • Jenn — February 15th, 2016 @ 12:37 pm

      Yes! What I have done in the past, is use 1 cup almond milk and I added 2 Tablespoons lemon juice. Let the mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes.Then use it in the recipe as directed. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does! 🙂

    The batter tastes like cookie dough! Made these today and they came out perfect!! I used the buttermilk recipe too!

  8. Sephorah — September 29, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    made these yesterday and even used your homemade buttermilk recipe! I loved these muffins, they were delicious, quick and easy to make! thank you!

  9. Solomon Williams — September 24, 2015 at 9:40 am

    I’ve made these twice in one week. This is my new go-to blueberry muffin recipe. Thank you for sharing. My only suggestion is to bake them in cupcake liners. I had a few separate on me the first time when I tried transferring them from the pan to a cooling rack because there are so many blueberries in them! Delicious muffins.

    I love this recipe for blueberry muffins, so yummy! I am making them for the second time tonight, but this time instead of brown sugar I used coconut palm sugar and instead white sugar I used honey.

  12. Jennifer — July 14, 2015 at 8:10 am

    These blueberry muffins turned out wonderfully! I just finished eating a couple left over from yesterday and they were even better today!!  Great recipe and a definite keeper!  The difference between from scratch and a box is immense!  Thank you for sharing:-).

    Just made your great blueberry muffin recipe. My husband and I loved them, so we shared some with our neighbors, and they also loved them! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!

    I made these yesterday and they were perfect! I didn’t have any blueberries so I made them with raspberries and they were divine! However, do you have any tips on helping the crumble on top stay crumbly? I used the exact same recipe listed and it just melted on top of the muffin. It still provided a crunchy top to the muffin but I’d prefer it stay in tact. 

    Thank you for this recipe! 

  20. BeccaLeigh — January 24, 2015 at 4:03 pm

    I just made these muffins with only one difference; I mashed up a small handful of blueberries and mixed them in the batter before adding the whole blueberries just to add some extra blueberries taste.  It tasted amazing! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I will be making more tonight seeing as how I shared some with the neighbors ;D .

  21. Gena — January 16, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    OH MY WORD!!!  These are some of the best muffins I have ever had/made!  I made them exactly as the recipe read, and the dough was thick, but they turned out perfect!!  The cinnamon crumble on top is so good!  They looked even better than a store bought muffin!  Thanks for the recipe!

  22. Daniella — December 27, 2014 at 8:10 pm

    I made it today…What a great recipe! I was nervous at first because the consistency was thicker than the one in the picture. However, I thought I should try it before adding anything. I’m glad I did because they came out great. The only substitution I made was 1/2 whole wheat flour and they came out perfect! Thanks so much, I loved the muffins and so did my husband!!!

  23. Lidia — November 4, 2014 at 5:20 pm

    Yum! These look amazing! Will using a 2% milk over the buttermilk make a difference?

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — November 5th, 2014 @ 8:40 am

      Hi Lidia,

      Thanks, these are one of my favorite blueberry muffins! I wouldn’t substitute 2 % milk for the buttermilk but you could use 1/3 cup + 2 Tablespoons of vanilla or plain yogurt instead of buttermilk.Enjoy! 🙂

  24. Elizabeth — November 3, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Fabulous blueberry muffins.
    Must be the buttermilk which I had some whipping cream to use up, so mixed with buttermilk.
    Thanks for a great recipe

    Yum!  I saw these and they’ve been on my list of things to make.  I pulled everything out and got everything mixed and then my blueberries had freezer burn (lol) so I swapped them out for mini chocolate chips and decided to throw it in a small bread tin instead 🙂  Thanks for the awesome recipe!  It’s in the oven right now and I can’t hardly wait to try it again with blueberries next time! 

  29. Luda S — July 29, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Hey there! just made these super soft and flavorful muffins! I got to say though when I was making them it seemed like there wasn’t enough moist ingredients for the amount of flour. The dough’s consistency did not look like the above pictures. I ended up adding 1/2 cup of milk and it looked just right!
    Thank you for the recipe! My husband and brother-in-law loved them:)

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — July 30th, 2014 @ 7:44 pm

      I’m so glad you loved my blueberry muffins! The muffin mix should be thicker, but adding milk is perfectly fine for this recipe! 🙂

  30. Serenity — July 29, 2014 at 7:32 pm

    Great recipe, however the batter was super doughy like cookie dough, I added a little milk to make it more batter like.

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — July 30th, 2014 @ 7:45 pm

      I’m so glad you liked my blueberry muffin recipe! The muffin batter should be thicker, but adding no more than 1/2 cup or less of milk is perfectly fine to do for this recipe! 🙂
