Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins

Do you love fresh picked blueberries? I love them so much more than store bought blueberries. I am very fortunate to have a local blueberry orchard right down the road from me in West Virginia. For a few weeks in the beginning of July, I can go over to the farm and pick all the blueberries my heart desires. They taste so much better when they are fully ripe and picked fresh.

You really can taste a difference and that’s the main reason why my daughter and I ate 90% of the blueberries I picked. However, I set aside some just so I could make these Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins. They were so good!!

I was torn on what kind of topping to give them. I could have gone with a lemon glaze or even a crunchy, nutty topping, but I chose the wonderful flavors of brown sugar Streusel topping.

You can even take box mix muffins and add this easy streusel crumble to them to dress them up  and make them so much prettier and tastier.

There’s a debate on baking muffins right in the tin or in liners. If you bake them right in a muffin tin you must be sure to coat it will with nonstick spray. The edges will be browner and you’ll get to enjoy 100% of the tasty muffin. Using liners is great if you are delivering them to a friend, however, some of the muffin sticks to the liners when you peel them off.

Whatever… I liked using these fun tulip liners to make a pretty presentation.  I also think it helps to keep the muffins moist if you are freezing them.

I highly recommend using fresh or even fresh frozen blueberries when possible. I was talking to the nice lady who owns the blueberry farm and  she commented that the blueberries in the stores could have been picked more than a week prior and that in off seasons, berries from South America are usually picked too early and that’s why that are tart. So, look for fresh, frozen blueberries in the winter months.

These muffins were a big hit in the house. With the light lemon flavor in the batter, the whole blueberry chunks and the crumble topping they are sure to be a hit a your household as well!

How do you recommend thawing the blueberry muffins so that they don't get soggy by the time they're ready?

I wrap them in a paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds at 70% power. Check it and then repeat if the center is still frozen. It's important to use a low power setting for defrosting and not "cooking" the muffin. Once it's thawed, I'll cut it in half and toast it on level 2 in my toaster oven. That will help dry it out a little bit. Hope that helps.

In your recipe you have 1 tablespoon of baking soda and half a teaspoon of baking soda. When I read the instructions you have baking powder in it.

Whoops! So sorry for the confusion. I've corrected the recipe. It's 1 tablespoon of baking POWDER and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Thanks so much for letting me know.
