Fresh or Frozen Blueberries

It doesn't matter which type of berries you use in this blueberry muffin recipe. When using fresh berries, wash and pat them dry before adding them to the ingredients.

When using frozen blueberries, add them frozen so that they don't break down while mixing the muffin batter. Of course, if you want the berries to burst open and to create a purple marbling look to your muffins, go ahead and thaw them before use!

Muffin Baking Tips

When not using liners when baking muffins, it's important to grease the muffin tins with a baking spray. I prefer sprays that have flour in them because the muffins are easy to release.

Make sure to spray around the rim as well to prevent the muffin tops from sticking.
