i can remember my mom making these blueberries muffins often – even in the winter months! she would use either fresh or frozen blueberries to make them, and so would freeze the many, many pounds we’d pick during the summer months to use in sundaes, smoothies, and of course, these muffins! and now i find myself doing the same thing – freezing as many as i can so we can enjoy the little blue beauties year-round. we love these soft, moist, and delicious blueberry muffins with little bursts of blueberry freshness distributed throughout. they are perfect for a breakfast-on-the-go, a mid-day treat, or even a midnight snack.

I wanted to know if you could tell me what type of paper you used to wrap your muffins in. And how you did it please. They look so pretty. I want to learn
Hi Heather! I wish I could say I put them together myself, but I just bought the paper muffin cups at my grocery store 🙂
I made these for my family and they lasted all of one day. It’s a great recipe and thanks for sharing.
that’s awesome! i LOVE these muffins – glad you and your family do too!
Made this recipe today for an after school snack for our kids. They gobbled them right up and wanted more! I shared this recipe on my site: http://www.tastequests.com as well. Thank you for the great recipe! 🙂
Awesome. They look great Gina!!

They smelt like they were burning mid way through the the baking time so I took them out but they weren’t even cooked..
Sorry you had that problem, Natalie! I haven’t heard of that happening before with these. I’m not sure why that happened for you, but something like that typically happens if the oven gets too hot or if the pan is too close to the element (ovens can differ, especially with their actual internal temperature, and some suggest using an internal thermometer for that reason). Or, sometimes if you’re using a really dark muffin tin the metal gets too hot too fast and cooks the outside of whatever you’re making much faster than the inside. I hope it works out for you in the future!
Thanks for sharing your recipe! I am making These for a neighborhood family and the muffins are in the oven as I type. After seeing the most glorious, creamiest batter take shape before me, I’m really hoping we can sneak the few extras for ourselves! Love when I get to squeeze out a few more muffins than expected – and that’s with almost-filled-to-the-brim cups!
Isn’t the batter amazing?! So nice of you to make these for your neighbors! 🙂
I used this recipe and used chocolate chips instead of blueberries. Yum!
I’ll have to try this one with chocolate chips now – thanks! Glad you liked them!
Can I substitute with self-rising flour?
hmm, good question. self-rising flour usually has the baking powder and salt already incorporated into it, and i’m not sure of the amounts that are used. so you’d have to omit those ingredients in the original recipe, and not having tried it myself i’m not sure if they’d turn out the same. if you do end up trying it, i’d love to hear the results!
