Blueberry Muffins Recipe


Recipe: Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 stick/4 tablespoons/60 grams unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup plus 2 teaspoon milk
1 cup blueberries


1)Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Line a muffin pan with 10 paper muffin cups or spray with nonstick cooking spray. If you have a 12-hole muffin pan, fill the two empty cups halfway with water. This will keep the muffin moist while baking in the oven.
2)Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar. In another bowl, together the melted butter, egg, and milk. You can also use an electronic hand mixer. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk until just blended (mixture should be slightly lumpy).
3)Add the blueberries to bowl and stir them in just enough to combine.
4)Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffins cups. Bake the muffins until golden, for about 18-24 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Muffins are best served warm.

Cook’s Note:

Filling water in empty cups halfway with water is to create light steam during the baking process. It will make the muffins moist.

    If I did live in the states I’d be eating berries all the time! I’m so deprived, haha :) I’m glad the health scare turned out to be a small thing. :)

    Asians are conscious of eating their vege and fruits. No struggle. I personally feel that the author missed out 1 or 2 more legumes. Like your muffins very much. When I am in a cafe I gravitate to it esp. the blueberry. It’s the best.

    Hi, i don’t get the part where you say, fill empty cups halfway with water. What does that mean? Do you mean, the empty muffin/paper cups? How is that possible?

    Thank you in advance for clarifying (:

    Your blueberry muffins look so cute. I also love blueberry muffins in the morning for breakfast and yes, the ones at the store are always dry and very dense, so I can only eat one blueberry muffin the most. I am going to try your lighter blueberry muffins recipe.

    I tried your blueberry muffins last night and oh my god, they were so good and yes, these blueberry muffins are perfect for breakfast the next morning. Thanks for such a great and easy blueberry muffins recipe.

    I also have the same question. Why do you fill up the empty muffin cups with water? do you put the muffin batter in the cups with water?

    Dora – I am not sure about the filling empty cups with water instructions. I followed the recipe exactly, if I were to guess, I think it’s to make sure that the empty tins don’t get overheated, especially if you have a 18-tins muffin pan. Just a wild guess.

    Nat – I got your comment and published it but somewhere it doesn’t appear. I don’t know why?!

    That's okay, thanks for taking time to reply anyway. Much appreciated. I thought it had something to do with making the muffins more moist / fluffier.

    I like your revamped layout, btw – side bar & blue background for recipe. Not that it wasn't nice but it just got nicer :)

    filling the cups half with water creates slight steam in the oven which keeps the air moist and hence the muffins moist, should do this with most oven cooking, it prevents drying out. and i iwll def try this recipe, im searching for the ultimate muffin recipe after eating the best muffin just last week, would die for its recipe!

    My favorite! Just an idea, if you are looking for healthier, try replacing at least half of the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour instead. You probably won’t notice much difference in taste, but you will be getting more fiber, and fiber is the stuff that acts like little scrub brushes in our insides to keep us ‘clean’.
    I will try the recipe right now!

    Most muffin trays have 12 cups. This recipe only requires 10, to line with paper cups or grease, then fill the other two left with half water.

    Tried couple times making muffins but sometimes, the rise of muffins are uneven (crooked up on one side) and some are even. Does this got to do with uneven oven heat or the technique of pouring muffin into tray?
