Baking Tips for the Best Blueberry Muffins
Here are my tips and techniques for moist and soft muffins every time!
- Use fresh blueberries for the best results.
- Use both crushed blueberries and whole blueberries so every bite is bursting with the juiciness of the berries.
- Toss whole blueberries with flour before adding to the batter. This will avoid sinkage.
- Top the muffins batter with sugar before baking. This will add extra sweetness and a sugary crunch to the muffins.
Frequently Asked Questions
How to Prevent Blueberries from Sinking to the Bottom?
To help keep your blueberries from sinking to the bottom, toss the berries in flour before adding them to the batter.
The coating helps suspend them better during baking so they don’t sink to the bottom.
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?
For the best results, please use fresh blueberries.
However, frozen blueberries will work just fine. Thaw the frozen berries to room temperature and pat dry with paper towels before using.
