Easy Recipe For Blueberry Muffins

A Perfect Blueberry Muffin

We aren't the only ones obsessed with blueberries right now! YumSugar member senorita shares her favorite recipe for blueberry muffins in our Kitchen Goddess cooking group. I can't resist the minute blueberries start popping up at the market to make homemade blueberry muffins. I have tried many recipes, but I finally found the perfect one on Fine Cooking. The recipe combines both applesauce and buttermilk for an incredibly moist muffin! Of course, they are divine right out of the oven. But I made a couple dozen muffins and wrapped them up individually to freeze. They are just as good defrosted and reheated in my toaster oven for a couple minutes!

Delicious Blueberry Muffin Recipe


  1. Nonstick cooking spray
  2. 4-1/2 oz. (1 cup) unbleached all-purpose flour
  3. 4 oz. (1 cup) whole-wheat flour
  4. 2 tsp. baking powder
  5. 1/2 tsp. table salt
  6. 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  9. 1/4 cup canola oil
  10. 1 cup natural unsweetened applesauce
  11. 1-1/2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  12. 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  13. 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  14. 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400°F. Coat a 12-cup standard muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk both flours, the baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, and oil until the mixture is pale and slightly frothy. Whisk in the applesauce, lemon zest, and vanilla. With the whisk, stir in about half the flour mixture, then half the buttermilk. Repeat with the remaining flour and then the remaining buttermilk, stirring until well incorporated. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  4. Divide the batter among the muffin cups, filling them to the top. Tap the pan on the counter to remove any air bubbles. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the muffins comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the muffins to loosen them and then unmold. Serve warm or let cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or wrap individually and freeze for up to 3 months.

Oh I wish I had more of these in my freezer! lekatvt, I haven't tried any other berries but I would imagine they would be just as good. Next time, I might even try to add some chopped up nuts too just to add a little more to them but trust me they are a GREAT base!
