Homemade Bluberry Muffins

There is something SO comforting about blueberry muffins baking in the oven. That sweet smell that fills the house just makes me smile!! I love to make these muffins with my kids on a rainy day. They love to mix and pour and make a mess. But messy = fun, right??


These fluffy moist blueberry muffins make the most delicious breakfast. Pair them on the side of some eggs and bacon and you’re done. I’m dying over how yummy these are warm and straight out of the oven. With a nice layer of of butter spread in the middle. I even like to eat one (or two!) of these for an afternoon pick-me-up or a late night snack before bed. To be honest, they are tasty any time of the day!

How to Make Blueberry Muffins

You’re in luck because blueberries are officially in season! They are in season from about May to August. You’ll need 2 cups of fresh blueberries (washed and drained) for this simple muffin recipe. You’ll also need coarse sugar for sprinkling on top of the muffin batter before putting them into the oven. That sugar makes them even yummier! They’re so easy to make and take just a few steps…

  1. Beat the regular sugar and butter in a bowl until they are smoothly mixed together.
  2. Add your eggs one at a time, and then add the vanilla.
  3. Mix your dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients a little at a time. While you’re doing that, alternate with adding in your 1/2 cup of milk. Then your batter is ready for the blueberries!
  4. Take 1/2 cup of the blueberries and mash them up with a fork. Mix those in with your batter. Then take the other 1 and 1/2 cups of blueberries and fold them into the batter.
  5. Pour the batter into muffin tins, sprinkle your coarse sugar on top, and bake for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

The result is the perfect, soft muffin filled with blueberries – a family favorite!
