Ok so this might seem like a really obvious thing to say, but seriously, how GREAT are blueberry muffins? And these ones… umm SO easy!!

Easy Blueberry Muffins

For these yummy & easy blueberry muffins I used my favourite no-fail muffin recipe. It’s ridiculously quick and simple. AND you really only need pantry and fridge staples (which means you don’t even need to leave the house!!).

Easy Blueberry MuffinsThe trick to these easy blueberry muffins is to make sure that the mixture doesn’t get over-mixed. As soon as you over-mix your ingredients you’ll end up with dense muffins. So mix everything together until it’s just combined (a few lumps are perfectly fine!) and then gently fold through the blueberries. Simple, right? Yep, and you’ll have the most deliciously light muffins.

Oooh one of my other favourite tricks when making muffins is to add a sprinkle of raw sugar to the top of each muffin case just before baking. Doing so will mean that you’ll end up with the most kick-ass crunchy muffin tops ever. Love, love, love a crunchy topped muffin!

I personally think that muffins are the best on the day you’ve made them (straight out of the oven = out of this world!). But you can of course, pop them into an airtight container and they’ll keep for a couple of days.

If you can’t eat the whole batch straight away, you can also freeze them in sealed plastic bags or a container. Easy as (and great when you need a snack on the run!). If you freeze them while they’re still fresh, they’ll be absolutely delicious.

Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Ingredients Notes:
  • self-raising flour – if you don’t have self-raising flour you can make your own by sifting 2 teaspoons baking powder through every 1 cup of plain flour
  • caster sugar – also known as superfine sugar
  • egg – use a large egg approximately 55g
  • vegetable oil – using vegetable oil in muffins makes them super light and moist!
  • milk – for the best possible flavour, I recommend using full fat milk in muffins
  • blueberries – you can use either fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe
  • raw sugar – (optional) also known as granulated sugar. While this is optional, it’s what gives you the crunchy top so it’s very highly RECOMMENDED!!!
 
More Recipe Tips:
Blueberry substitutions - This is a super versatile recipe – substitute the blueberries for raspberries, chocolate chips or your favourite add-in.
Vegetable oil substitutions - If you don't have vegetable oil, you can substitute the vegetable oil for canola, sunflower oil, coconut oil or butter.
Storage - Blueberry muffins are at their absolute best on the day that they’re made but they’re still delicious for 2 days (stored in an airtight container at room temperature).
Freezing - Blueberry muffins can be frozen in an airtight container or in a sealable bag (ie. a glad bag) for up to 3 months.

  2. xy says:

    I made them but my muffins turned out dense, goey and looked like it was underbaked – but the skewer came out clean. Do you reckon I overmixed it? 🙁

    1. Lucy says:

      Hi there, over-mixing is usually the biggest reason for dense muffins. If you just fold the mixture together until just combined, it will be fine!
