Blueberry Muffins Recipe
Is there anything better than a warm blueberry muffin for breakfast? I really doubt it! My Classic Blueberry Muffin recipe is made with pantry staples you probably have in your kitchen right now! And assembly takes all of 10 minutes. Seriously… skip the bakery, bust out the blueberries, and make these today!
Blueberry muffins are made with plenty of butter, sour cream, and a dash of milk, so they’re super moist & flavorful! A little dash of nutmeg and a glug of vanilla will give them that classic bakery-style taste we all know and love. And 2 cups of blueberries ensure you’ll find juicy blueberries in every bite!
Serve warm, with softened salted butter, and extra blueberries on the side. And if you happen to have any leftovers (which rarely happens because they’re so delicious), you can simply pop them in the freezer for a future treat. We always have a few of these muffins hiding in our freezer! They keep for about 2 months and reheat like a dream. Perfect for a quick and satisfying breakfast!

yield 1 dozen muffins
- 2 and 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 8 ounces unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 and 1/3 cups granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups blueberries
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners and set aside.
- In a large bowl, sift together 2 and 3/4 cups of the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using a handheld electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping the bowl as needed.
- Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the vanilla. Turn mixer off.
- In a spouted measuring cup, combine the sour cream and milk.
- With the mixer speed on low, alternate adding flour mixture and sour cream mixture, beginning and ending with the flour, and mixing just until combined. The batter will be very thick, so don’t overmix. Turn mixer off.
- In a small bowl, combine the blueberries with the remaining 2 Tablespoons of flour, tossing well to ensure all berries are coated in flour. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the blueberries into the batter.
- Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin tins.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
- Cool in the pan, placed on a wire cooling rack, for 10 minutes. Remove muffins from the pan and serve warm.
