Blueberry muffin recipe that delivers big, bakery style blueberry muffins you crave. Loaded with juicy blueberry and topped with a buttery crumb topping. This is the only blueberry muffin recipe you need!
One of the best parts of summer is blueberries. Beautiful, plump, juicy blueberries have taken over my kitchen. Not that I’m complaining, I absolutely love eating blueberries. My favorite way to eat them is in a big bowl of greek yogurt and topped with homemade granola. The blueberries we’ve enjoyed have been so sweet lately. I’ve been keeping a bowl on the counter and my daughter and I snack on them throughout the day.
Every time I have an abundance of blueberries, I have the craving to make bakery style blueberry muffins for breakfast or as a midday snack. They’re just perfect. But please don’t think you can only use fresh blueberries only in this muffin recipe. Frozen blueberries work great too. Just be sure to thaw the blueberries first and drain the juices. Then, proceed with the recipe as written.
I call these blueberry muffins “bakery style” because they’re oversized. They’re the kind of muffins you see in a bakery display case. Big and bold, these blueberry muffins are quick to make and are delightfully buttery. They’re light and perfectly sweet with a delicate, moist crumb. I use plenty of blueberries in this blueberry muffin recipe so you’re sure to get blueberries in every single bite.
The crumb topping on top of the blueberry muffins is a simple mixture of flour, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and melted butter. I spoon a hefty amount of the topping over the tops of each muffin before I place them in the oven to bake. This topping is one I love and use on almost all of my fruit desserts or coffee cakes. It’s buttery and sugary and spiced just right. The trick to making the perfect crumb topping is to make sure to mix the melted butter and the dry ingredients together well, leaving no dry ingredients in the bottom of the bowl.
