I love blueberry muffins. The best blueberry muffins I have ever had was at a hospital. No hospital in particular, just a hospital. You know how they have those little eateries in the hall stocked with soup, salad, coffee and pastries, and some weird dish that doesn’t belong at the hospital like Mongolian beef…It is there that I have always found the best blueberry muffins; large & tightly wrapped in saran wrap, delicious! Alas, they don’t have those eateries filling the halls at hospitals here in Mexico so I set out to bake some great muffins at home.
Cook Eat Delicious Rating: I think I will stick to the Hospital’s blueberry muffins. These aren’t bad, just not what I wanted. Very easy recipe to cook though. The muffins turned out too crumbly for me, falling apart at every second. The batter was thick but the blueberries all sunk to the bottom so there wasn’t that blueberryness (yes, I know) in every bite. Next time I will try something different instead of repeating this one.

Tips And Tricks For Perfect Blueberry Muffins
Are you looking for a delicious and nutritious breakfast option that you can make in just minutes? Then check out our recipe for blueberry muffins! These muffins are sweet and rich, perfect for breakfast or snack time. Plus, with a few simple tips, you’ll be able to make them perfectly every time.
- When choosing your blueberry variety, look for berries that are plump and firm. Avoid berries that are soft or mushy. In addition to the blueberry variety, you can also substitute other fruit in this recipe – such as strawberry or raspberry – with great results. Just be sure to adjust the amount of sugar accordingly.
- When it comes to mixing and baking the muffins, be sure to use an electric mixer on medium-high speed if possible. This will help to ensure that the batter is mixed well and doesn’t become lumpy later on. Likewise, make sure not to overmix the batter – otherwise, the muffins will be tough and dense. You’ll also need about 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour per batch of muffins, so don’t forget to add it when you mix everything together.
- Once the muffins have been mixed together, it’s time to get them into the oven! Grease or line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners before adding a spoonful of batter each time. Be sure not to overcrowd the pan – only fill it two-thirds full at most – and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through (test one muffin first). Allow them to cool briefly before serving warm; they’re best eaten fresh from the oven! And last but not least: store your freshly made muffins in an airtight container in a cool place until ready to eat… they’ll last up to three days this way!
