Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes, you can use frozen blueberries for this blueberry muffin recipe, although I prefer using fresh blueberries. You will notice that your frozen blueberries may tend to bleed into the batter and will color the batter.

When using frozen blueberries bake the muffins for up to 10 minutes longer. Baking times may differ depending on your oven so make sure to check on the muffins periodically when cooking.

How do I stop my muffins from sticking?

You can bake muffins straight in a muffin tin, or you can use paper liners. To stop the muffins from sticking, use a nonstick pan and lightly grease the pan with nonstick cooking spray. If you’re using liners, spray the liners with a light coating of nonstick cooking spray to keep the muffins from sticking to the wrapper.

Top Tips

  • If you do not have store bought buttermilk available, you can add 2 teaspoons of either white vinegar or lemon juice to sour the milk.
  • In order to help the crumble stay on the muffins, gently press the crumble on to the top of the muffin before you cook it.
  • If you don’t have sour cream you can use yogurt, both add a lovely moisture to the muffins.
  • The brown sugar topping is completely optional, the muffins still taste great without it. The brown sugar topping helps add a little extra sweetness and extra crunch to the muffins.
  • Freeze the baked & cooled muffins for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature before enjoying.
