My Favorite Blueberry Muffins

I have been making this recipe for Blueberry Muffins for nearly 20 years. I’ve tried many others but I always come back to this one – it’s my favorite of all time!

My family says they are the BEST EVER!

This has been my family’s very most favorite blueberry muffins recipe for 2 decades now – 20 years! I have tried ‘fancier’ recipes than this, but we always come back to this super simple and easy ‘classic’ recipe.

I’ve made them hundreds of times over this time period & all of my kids still get super excited when I tell them that I have a batch in the oven.

We have tried many other blueberry muffin recipes over the years, but none of them ever even came close to comparing to these. They’re packed with blueberries, super moist & tender with the perfect balance of sweetness. They are simply marvelous (I feel like I should put on a string of pearls around my neck & repeat that… they are simply maaahhhh-val-ous my dear).

You know those muffin recipes that tell you to fill up the muffin cup half way or 3/4 of the way? Yeah, not these. Fill those babies up all the way to the brim!!

What ingredients do you need to make this recipe for Blueberry Muffins?

I told you it was simple, right? Here’s what you need.

The full measurements are in the printable recipe at the bottom of this post. There is also a video of yours truly in my kitchen making up a batch of these.

  • flour (self rising or all purpose plus baking powder and salt)
  • sugar
  • vegetable oil
  • egg
  • milk
  • blueberries (frozen or fresh work)
  • and a little vanilla extract if you want!

When I make these, I always double the recipe. They really are excellent and get gone super fast. They also freeze really well too so don’t be afraid of making this recipe in larger batches. You’ll be glad you did.

I hope that you give them a shot and that your family loves them as much as my family does!

If you make them, I’d love to know what you think! Post a picture on Instagram and tag me in it at @MrsHappyHomemaker!

My Favorite Blueberry Muffins

Servings 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, salt & baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of flour over the blueberries & stir gently to coat the blueberries. Gently fold in the blueberries. Fill muffin cups to the top.

Notes

You can swap out the all purpose flour for self rising flour - and then omit the salt and baking powder.
