Recipe Variations

  • Gluten-Free Swap: If you’re avoiding gluten, easily substitute the all-purpose flour with your favorite gluten-free flour blend. Just make sure it’s a 1:1 substitution suitable for baking.
  • Different Berries: Not a fan of blueberries or just looking to mix things up? Try using raspberries or mixed berries for a different twist. Just make sure the berries are dry and lightly floured to prevent sinking.
  • Add Nuts or Seeds: For a crunchier texture, fold in some chopped walnuts, almonds, or even sunflower seeds into the batter before baking.

Tools You’ll Need

  • Mixing Bowls: You’ll need at least two, one for dry ingredients and one for wet. This helps in mixing thoroughly without overworking the batter.
  • Muffin Tin and Liners: Essential for getting those perfectly shaped muffins. Using liners helps them come out easily without sticking.
  • Whisk and Spatula: A whisk for combining your wet ingredients and a spatula for folding the blueberries into the batter gently to avoid crushing them.

Servings 12 muffins


Dry Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup sugar

Wet Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups liquid yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • ¼ cup oil
  • cup sour cream
  • cup melted and cooled butter


  • 1 ⅔ cups blueberries


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line your muffin tin with paper liners and lightly grease the top of the pan to prevent sticking.
  • In one bowl, mix all dry ingredients together. In a larger bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients until smooth.
  • Gradually (in three parts) add the dry ingredients to the wet, whisking just until combined after each addition.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries with a spatula to distribute them evenly.
  • Overfill the muffin cups; they should be quite full to achieve that classic bakery-style muffin look.
  • Bake at 425°F for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350°F (180°C) and bake for about 12 more minutes. Set a timer to remind you!
  • Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
