Double Blueberry Muffins

This recipe for Double Blueberry Muffins was one of the first recipes I put up on my then general interest blog that spawned off this food blog. At the time I was blogging just about stuff in general, and wasn't really documenting foods that I cooked. Once I did start doing that, the recipes began to take over and I knew they would need a home of their own, dedicated solely to Southern recipes, and Deep South Dish was born.

These are wonderful muffins that take some of the blueberries crushed into the batter, and then fold in the rest whole. I'm not much of a baker, but I sure would like to figure out how to get that bakery style, high rise top on my muffins. Any tips?

Here's how to make these blueberry muffins.

Recipe: Double Blueberry Muffins

Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 30 min | Yield: 1 dozen


For the Muffins:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries, separated
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk
For the Topping:
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners; set aside. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a separate small bowl, mash 3/4 cup of the blueberries with a fork and set aside. Using the paddle attachment on your mixer, cream the butter until smooth. Slowly add in the cup of sugar, until fully incorporated. Add the eggs, one at a time, waiting to add the second after the first is incorporated. Add the vanilla. Mix on low until blended.

Add the mashed blueberries to the batter. On low speed, begin to add in some of the flour and then some of the milk, alternating each and ending with the flour, until fully incorporated. Fold in the whole blueberries by hand. In a separate small bowl, mix the 2 teaspoons of sugar and the cinnamon.

Use an ice cream scoop to evenly transfer the batter between the muffin cups, topping off each evenly with any leftover batter. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top of each muffin. Bake at 375 degrees F for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool in the pan for 30 minutes before turning out.

Cook's Notes: Be sure to use only low speed if using a mixer, to avoid overbeating the batter. I use White Lily all purpose flour, although cake flour works well too.
Frozen berries that have been thawed and allowed time to dry well, may be substituted.
Optional Streusel Topping: Combine 1/2 cup of light brown sugar, packed with 1/3 cup of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Stir in 2 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter and sprinkle on top of the muffins just before baking.
