#1 Homemade Blueberry Muffins
I love having fresh muffins for breakfast, especially homemade blueberry muffins. There is just something about waking up in the morning and having a fresh, homemade muffin to go along side my coffee, it just makes the morning that much better.
These homemade blueberry muffins are soft, buttery, and loaded with blueberries. I also love the cinnamon crumble topping which gives these muffins a sweet, crunchy topping that is to die for.
JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:
✓ MAKE YOUR OWN BUTTERMILK: I love using buttermilk in my muffin recipes because it makes the muffins super soft and tender, just how everyone loves them. But if you don’t have buttermilk in your fridge, no worries. You can simply make your own homemade buttermilk with only two simple ingredients. All you will need is some milk and lemon juice. I have posted a step-by-step guide on how to make homemade buttermilk here, it’s super simple!
✓ SCOOPING THE BATTER: I like to use an ice cream scooper to fill the muffin batter into each muffin tin. It makes it super easy and you know that each muffin will be the same size.
✓ LETTING THE MUFFINS COOL: After the muffins have baked, don’t let the muffins “cool” in the hot muffin pan. After about 5 minutes take the muffins out of the muffin pan and place them on a wire rack to cool for another 5-10 minutes. Keeping the muffins in the muffin pan too long will lead to dry, overcooked muffins.
