Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins

These Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins are so delicious!  Sweet, soft and loaded with blueberries.

You know how in the summer, right around mid July the stores start filling up with blueberries?  Big, blue, delicious and inexpensive blueberries?  Or if you’re really lucky you can pick them right out of the fields and eat them all warm and delicious?  In the middle of winter I miss those days.  I’ve been craving these blue jewels so bad that I finally broke down and bought some last week, and let me tell you they cost a gazillion dollars.  And to add insult to injury they were kind of mushy, but I couldn’t let them go to waste so I decided they were perfect for blueberry muffins, and that’s what I made.

These muffins turned out so beautifully that I had to share the recipe with you again!  This recipe was actually one of my very first blog posts, so I figured it was about time for it to have another moment in the spotlight.

I mean seriously, just look at them all puffed up and golden and covered in sugar and exploded berries.  Mouth.  Watering.

You must make them.  You must.


Blueberry Muffin Recipe Tips:

  • I like to use fresh blueberries in this recipe because they don’t colour the batter, but you can certainly use frozen berries.
  • Sprinkle some sugar on to the tops of the muffin batter before you bake them…this will create a nice sugary crust.
  • These muffins freeze well.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 16 muffins 1x


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/22 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Make sure the baking rack you are going to use is in the centre of the oven.
  3. Using a mixer cream together the butter and sugar.
  4. Add in the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla. Mix well.
  5. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  6. Add the flour mix to the butter mix, alternating with the buttermilk.
  7. Gently stir in the blueberries so the batter doesn’t become blue. I have actually found that fresh berries work best because they don’t colour the batter.
  8. Sprinkle some sugar on to the tops of the muffins (this will create a nice sugary crust).
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

    Made these for a second time! The bottoms were slightly browner than should be the first time made but that is because I forgot to move the rack to the middle … Was on the lowest spot. Still tasted awesome. I moved rack up and it was perfect. I made Texas size and cooked for the same time. Made 9 delicious huge muffins. The only change I made was 3 cups of frozen Saskatoons instead of blueberries and a slight dusting of sugar on top for second batch (prob not even necessary).

      Great idea using Saskatoons! I have a big bag in the freezer so I might make some too!
