Best Moist Blueberry Muffins


This is one of the best blueberry muffins recipe I’ve tried. It yields a soft, fluffy, kinda cake like crumbs, and the yogurt used ensures that you get moist muffins. Tossing the blueberries with a little bit of the dry ingredients keeps the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the batter when it’s baking. Topping fresh blueberries on top of the batter before baking gives you that visually pleasing look as the berries explodes and bleeds down the sides of the muffins. I don’t know about you, but that is just plain sexy to me.

When I took my first bite of the muffin, I was blown away. Not overly sweet but so freaking good! I lost self-control and had 2 at one go, the husband had 3. LOL. I took a batch to share with the teachers and canteen vendors. All the feedback gathered confirmed what I already knew. So I’m really excited to share this great recipe with you, and hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we all did. I’m putting this on my muffin rotation list!

  6. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until almost combined but still clumpy, do not over mix or you will get tough muffins.
  7. Fold in the 1 cup of blueberries for about 3-4 folds.

      Yes you can. Equal parts but note that brown sugar will be mean it’ll be more moist so it may alter texture of crumbs, and molasses in the brown sugar will alter the overall taste as well.

    Hi Sharon, I tried your recipe today and my muffin doesn’t turn out that “brownish”noise yours. I baked at 200 with fan mode and turned out bit burnt at the top thus I set to 180.
    However, the muffin still taste yummy! Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Angela, when using fan mode, you’ll need to lower baking temp by 20C. I always use top and bottom heat only, unless stated in the recipe to use fan mode. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for trying out the recipe! I’d recommend fresh or frozen. If you are using dried cranberries, you can always re-hydrate it by boiling it in a little cranberry or fresh orange juice. πŸ™‚

      Hi Chin, sorry that your muffins turned out like scones. Did you make any changes at all to the recipe? What about oven setting? Top bottom heat only? If everything was to the T, then it could be one of these reasons. Undermixing, the wet and dry ingredients not combined and gluten not formed to trap air for it to rise. Over-mixing, overworked gluten causing tough muffins. Baking agent too old / not fresh. This recipe has been tested by many of my readers and it quickly became their fast favourite. Perhaps try again? If you meet with any challenges, I’d be glad to help if I can. πŸ™‚

    Hi Sharon, my oven can bake 6 muffins only. Can mix all the mixture and keep aside the balance in room temperature for the next batch?

      Sharon Lam
      22 July, 2016 at 3:10 am

      Yes you can. Although that way you may be compromising on texture as the baking agent is activated when wet and dry are mixed together. Another way is to mix wet and dry ingredients then divide it, and only mix in one batch but keep the other separated until you are ready to bake the next batch.

    Can i just use self raising flour and not cake flour + bakimg soda and powder?

      26 September, 2016 at 10:48 pm

      Hi, self raising flour only contain baking powder but not baking soda (used to react with the yogurt). And each cup (130g) of self-raising flour has about 1.5 tsp of baking powder in it. So it’ll not be a good substitute that way.

      As stated, recipe yield 12 muffins. Yogurt is the main ingredient that keeps the muffin moist. You will not taste it in the muffin. You can also substitute it for sour cream if you prefer.

    You mentioned in one of your replies not to use top flour. May I know why? I used top flour for the muffin today and texture is still fluffy and moist.

      Hi Irin, sorry I missed your message. I have not used top flour for muffins before that’s why I recommended all purpose or cake flour as substitute. My worry is that top flour is so fine that it’ll alter the texture of the muffins to be much lighter. But then again it might be a personal preference for lighter & fluffier muffins. πŸ™‚

    hi sharon, i baked these today and it came out really good! mum loves it:)
    one qn though-my batter before baking was too thick, and i had to add in abt 4 tbsp of milk to thin the batter out.
    is the batter meant to be v thick? followed the recipe to a tee except for the milk part..not sure if anything went wrong? thks!

      Hihi! I’ve actually gotten 2 different sets of feedback. One like yours, and one that said consistency was more runny than mine. This all depends on the consistency of your yogurt. However, the end result turned out well. The other difference is varying the baking time. If too thick, add milk or bake shorter time. Thinner, bake longer. Hope this explains.

    Hi Sharon, I just tried it out but it has a bitter taste? Is it due to double action baking powder? And mine only took 18mins to bake.

      It could be due to that, too much baking powder can leave a bitter tinge. Good to know yours took a shorter time. Every oven is different, my oven guy told me that it’s normal for an oven to differ up to 30C from the heat set. So it’s always good to check a few minutes before given time. πŸ™‚

    Hi Sharon, tried yr recipe & it tasted great. Crusty on outside but soft & moist inside. However, on day 2 the muffins were a bit dry & crumbly. I keep them in an air tight container. Any idea what I can do to maintain the moist muffins?

      Was it moist the first day? If not, you can try baking it 1-2 minutes lesser. Keep it chilled in air-tight container once it is cooled.

      Yes you can, substitute for equal amount. You might need to bake it 1-2 minutes longer with the increase of liquid. i’d recommend using buttermilk. You can make your own by adding 1 tbsp of vinegar to 1 cup of milk.
