Tips for making buttermilk blueberry muffins recipe
Making these muffins is easy, it's just two bowls, some whisking and combining. But it should be noted that the frozen blueberries serve a better purpase than fresh ones.
Frozen berries hold shape a little better once baked and taste a little sweeter too. With frozen berries, there's also less color bleeding throughout the batter.
You can use fresh blueberries if you want to, but if you want more flavor I recommend freezing the blueberries before use. It's worth it!
Also, this recipe makes an odd amount due to the size of blueberries. Some can be about the size of a nickel while others are the size of a dime. Keeping that in mind and trying to keep the muffins filled to ¾ of the way full will result in different yields per batch.
FAQs about blueberry muffins
Anyone who has ever had browned butter recipes can attest to the fact that it makes foods taste better. With the naturally nutty addition in flavor, things are richer and more delicious. Of course, you don't have to brown your butter. You can simply melt it and call it a day.
Absolutely! These muffins freeze very well. Simply place them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months and thaw at room temperature before eating.
They're good for about 3-5 days if stored in an airtight container at room temperature. I don't recommend placing them in the fridge as the cold air will actually help them to dry out faster.
