Danish winter sucks. It’s cold, dark, windy, and far too long. But on the weekends when I don’t have to go anywhere, it’s actually quite a cosy time. One of my favorite things to do on Saturday mornings is to listen to vinyl, and bake homemade muffins—this easy blueberry muffin recipe is the one I use most often.
I’ve been using this recipe for years because it’s easy… just 8 ingredients and no sifting, creaming, or complicated weighing. 30 minutes later, I’m eating warm, delicious homemade muffins!
Easy Blueberry Muffin Recipe
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 t salt
2 t baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
1 cup blueberries*
In a medium bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, oil and egg, then stir it into the dry ingredients. Mix just to combine, if you overmix the batter, the muffins will be tough. Fill the muffin cups 1/4 of the way before adding the blueberries, then fold in the blueberries and fill them to about 3/4. This will help to avoid having all of the blueberries sink to the bottom of your muffins :)
I love the rustic look of parchment muffin pan liners, but regular muffin liners or a greased pan will work just as well.
Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with the raw sugar, then bake them in a preheated oven at 400 degrees (200 Celsius) for 20-25 minutes, or until they set and start to brown.
*It’s fine to use frozen blueberries in in blueberry muffins. The only downside is that they can turn the batter blue, to avoid this, just toss them with a bit of flour before adding them to the batter. I actually don’t mind the blue batter and add then straightaway. Whatever you do, do not thaw them first… you’ll end up with soggy berries!

Blueberry muffins are my absolutely favourite, I’ve never made my own though. These look so lovely, I just want to reach through the screen and grab one :) I now want to make a batch for myself. Thank you for sharing the recipe and method.

I’m in love with blueberry muffins, especially when they’re easy to make. I love these because they’re easy but still not a box mix. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I’ll definitely be trying this recipe! And the bonus is that my kids will probably LOVE the blue batter, so it’s a win-win (especially if I can sneak in some flax or something for an added nutrition bonus).
I can never tell my husband where I found this recipe, though…otherwise he’ll want me to bring them to him in bed, too!! :)
These blueberry muffins look so wonderful. I have a hard time getting my kids to eat anything but donuts on Sundays, so I will have to try these out on them. The recipe looks so easy tht maybe my husband can make them and let me sleep in ;). Thanks for sharing this great treat.

Awwwww.. What a sweet idea to bake muffin for your loved one. This is a great idea and gives me inspiration to make blueberry muffin for my husband for Father’s Day. My toddler can help with mixing the batter. And great tip to coat the frozen blueberries with flour to prevent the color to bleed too much to the batter.

I love blueberry muffins. I recall these were the first things I baked when I was being taught. And I think I ate half of them! LOL! Thank you for sharing your recipe. Would gladly bake these with my daughter. :)
Blueberry muffins are a huge favorite of mine and my husband. I love to make up big batches at a time and freeze some of them for quick breakfasts on the go! This sounds like a great recipe!
Our local Kenny Rogers branches also offer blueberry muffins that look like those. I am now craving for the taste! Since it’s summer, pairing these homemade muffins with ice cream will be great for snack time. :)
These muffins look so delicious. It has been so long since I have made muffins and I don’t know why. They are easy for busy mornings, can be made ahead and so good. I will have to try your recipe!
Normally I don’t even eat Blueberries but theres something about them in a fresh made muffin that makes me love them. Sounds like a great recipe to start off a winter day. Thanks so much for sharing it :)
