These jumbo blueberry muffins are bursting with fresh blueberries and have a crunchy sugar topping. They are also moist with extra sour cream and make the most perfect bakery style muffin. These taste just like a muffin you would get at a bakery!
How To Make Muffin Batter
This batter is easy to make with no mixer required!
- Mix dry ingredients- Mix the flour, salt and baking powder.
- Wash the blueberries- The blueberries need to be washed and dried before using. Remove ¼ cup of the blueberries and set to the side. They will be used to top the muffins.
- Mix wet ingredients- First, use a whisk to mix the melted butter, sugar, and sour cream. This will make a very creamy consistency. Then, add in the vanilla and eggs,
- Alternate dry ingredients and milk- Alternate these 2 until you end on dry ingredients. This will make sure everything gets mixed in evenly.
- Add in blueberries- Fold in the blueberries gently, to not break them.
What Pan To Use
Fresh Blueberries Or Frozen
This recipe, you need to use fresh blueberries. Frozen blueberries have extra moisture and can bleed into the batter.
Fresh blueberries give these muffins pockets of fresh blueberry flavor.
Scooping The Batter
The easiest (and mess free!) way to fill the muffin tin is to use an ice cream scoop. It will take 1 ½ scoops to fill it up ¾ full. Don't fill it up all the way, otherwise it will spill over.
Top these muffins with the extra blueberries you saved. Then, sprinkle white granulated sugar over the tops of the muffin batter. It should be a solid, but light, layer. There should be enough sugar to create the nice crunchy sugar topping.
Now bake! Bake it for 28-30 minutes. The muffins are done baking when the the edges are golden brown. If you insert a toothpick it should come out clean.
If there is extra sugar on top, simply brush it off.
Let the muffins cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
Storing And Freezing
To store the muffins, you can keep them at room temperature or in the fridge. Make sure they are well covered either way.
At room temperature they will last 3-5 days. If they are in the fridge, they will last 5-7 days.
Can These Muffins Be Frozen?
You can absolutely freeze these jumbo blueberry muffins. Wrap them up tightly with cling wrap, then place them in Tupperware or aluminum foil.
To thaw the muffins, leave them out on a counter until room temperature. Then, you can microwave it for 15-30 seconds to warm it.
Yes! Fill the tin ⅔rds of the way and bake for 18-20 minutes.
I prefer to eat the muffins fresh from the oven. However, I recommend heating the muffins in the oven for 10-15 seconds and serve with butter.
