Bursting Blueberry Muffins

Tender muffins jam packed with sweet and tart blueberries. A sugar sprinkling on top make these extra tasty!

These muffins truly are bursting with blueberries. As such, I will note that they were a little bit tricky to get out of the muffin pan if you don’t use any sort of muffin/cupcake liner, so I would suggest using those.

  1. Hi Ali, I just found your blog by surfing around other people's blogs, and these blueberry muffins really got my attention. I feel like I can almost taste them! I've done some hopping around your blog, and found lots of great stuff, so I just became your newest member. Looking forward to seeing yourrecipes on a regular basis.

  2. Found you through Pinterest. These muffins are delicious. I added a bit of fresh grated lemon peel. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    1. Sorry to hear they were a bit dry. Mine were anything but, and it is pretty hard for me to know what differences we had. :/ For muffins, just as a tip to everyone here, remember to only mix until just combined so they don't get tough.

  3. These muffins were delicious and moist. I added lemon zest and a teaspoon vanilla. I also ended up with 17 muffins. Thanks for the recipe.
