Homemade Blueberry Muffins

Monday, July 20, 2015

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved blueberries.  And I'm happy that my family enjoys them as well. My husband loves blueberry pancakes and I make them often for him during the summer months when fresh blueberries are available in our local Shoprite grocery store.  I'm sharing with you today a basic blueberry muffin recipe that bakes up quickly so you can have them on the table for breakfast in no time.  They also make a nice treat for when the kids come home from school.

An easy recipe for the best homemade blueberry muffins using summer fresh blueberries.  Also a tip on how to freeze summer blueberries to use in the winter months.  Walking on Sunshine Recipes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 TBS. baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 TBS. additional flour

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together in a mixing bowl.
Add the additional 1 TBS. flour to the blueberries and toss gently.
In another small mixing bowl, beat the egg slightly then stir in the milk and oil.
Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined being careful not to overwork the dough.
Add the blueberries to the muffin mixture.
Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20 - 25 minutes in a preheated 400 degree oven.

Toss the blueberries with a tablespoon of flour.  This helps distribute the blueberries as the muffins bake so the blueberries don't clump all together...

A great breakfast or treat...

And what do you do if you have leftover blueberries...freeze them! Place the blueberries on a baking tray and place the tray in the freezer for about 45 minutes or until the blueberries are frozen.  Place the frozen blueberries in a plastic freezer bag.  Make sure you label and date the bag.  They're ready for you to pull out of the freezer in the coming months when you want to enjoy homemade blueberry muffins again...
