6 Blueberry Muffins in Tin

Who doesn’t love a great blueberry muffin? As we tested the highest rated muffin recipes online, we found that most recipes did one or two things really well. Some muffins had a great flavor, but were a bit dry. Others had a crispy muffin top, but a bland batter. We took the best parts from each recipe to create the PERFECT blueberry muffin recipe.

How can we be sure these are the best? We made 7 different recipes and almost 100 muffins to get to this point. To see our full comparison, check out our article.

These muffins turn out perfectly moist and flavorful – getting much of their sweetness from lemon zest rather than just adding more sugar. We highly suggest cooking this recipe as-is, without any modifications. Use fresh blueberries if you can, but if not then frozen is fine. 

We hope you love these blueberry muffins as much as we do! If you made this recipe, please leave a rating. We’re more than happy to answer any questions you have as well. Just ask in the comments below.
