  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Rind of one lemon

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt

Blueberries and Streusel Topping

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Note: Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before beginning.

The Recipe How-To

“Get ready to bite into a burst of blueberry flavor”

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Before starting the Blueberry Muffins Recipe, I preheat my oven to 350°F. This temperature is perfect for the muffins to get a nice golden-brown appearance while being cooked to perfection on the inside.

Step 2: Combine Dry Ingredients

For this recipe of Starbucks Copycat Blueberry Muffins, I take 2 cups of Wheat Flour and mix it with 2 teaspoons of Baking Powder and a pinch of Salt. Make sure that everything is mixed up well so that all the ingredients are evenly distributed in the flour mixture.

Step 3: Combine Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, I take 1 Egg and beat it until it becomes frothy. Then add 1 cup of Milk (Skim Milk works perfectly too) and ½ cup of Plain Yogurt into the bowl. Use a whisk to combine them evenly.

Step-4: Make Batter

Now, it’s time to combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients’ mixture to the dry ingredients and gently fold everything together with a rubber spatula. It’s important not to overmix, or else the muffins will become tough.

Step-5: Fold We Use Frozen Blueberries or Fresh Blueberries?

The key ingredient of Blueberry Muffin Recipe is pretty obvious – blueberries. Now, if you want your muffins to be filled with Fresh Blueberries, go ahead and use them. But if you’re like me, who loves baking these muffins at any time of the year, then using Frozen Blueberries wouldn’t hurt anyone!

Step-6 Fill The Batter

Now we’ll add around 1 & 1/2 cups of blueberries into our batter mixture. Make sure you avoid bruising them; otherwise, they’ll bleed into the batter and change its color. Gently fold in the blueberries with the batter.

Step-7: Prepare the Streusel Topping

Take a small bowl and mix ¼ cup of Sugar, 1/3 cup Flour, 3 Tbsp Butter (melted), ½ tsp of Lemon Rind together until it forms a crumbly texture.

Step-8: Spoon the Batter into the Muffin Tin

It’s time to prepare your muffin tin – either use a butter knife gently to grease each liner or spray Non-Stick Cooking Spray all over your muffin tin – doesn’t matter whichever works best for you! Now take a spoon and scoop around ¼ cup of batter into each muffin liner.

Step-9: Add Streusel Topping

After filling the muffin liners with the batter (around three-quarters full), now is the time to use Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffins! Take 1 tablespoon of Streusel mixture for each muffin and sprinkle it generously

Substitutions and Variations

“Freshly baked muffins that are perfect for breakfast or as a snack on the go”

Are you looking to shake things up with this classic Starbucks blueberry muffin recipe? Here are a few ideas to help you customize the recipe to fit your taste buds!

– Frozen blueberries: While fresh blueberries give the muffins a delicious burst of flavor, frozen berries can work just as well in a pinch! Be sure to thaw them beforehand and toss them in flour so they don’t sink to the bottom of the muffin during baking.

– Lemon Blueberry Streusel Muffins: Get creative by adding some lemon zest or juice to the mix for a tangy twist on these baked treats! You can also add some streusel topping for an extra layer of sweetness.

– Starbucks Skinny Blueberry Muffins: For those watching their sugar intake, swap out the regular sugar for a natural sweetener such as honey or maple syrup. To shave off even more calories, try using alternative flours such as almond or coconut flour.

– Blueberry Yogurt Muffins: Mix things up by using plain yogurt instead of milk. The added tang will make these muffins irresistible!

– Fresh Blueberries: If you want to bump up the freshness factor, swap out the dry ingredients for three cups of fresh blueberries and reduce the baking powder to one teaspoon.

Regardless of which variation you choose, these muffins will still make your taste buds dance with delight. Experiment with different ingredients and see what unique creations you can come up with next!

Serving and Pairing

“A blueberry explosion in every bite”

Starbucks Blueberry Muffins are delectable treats that can be served in a variety of ways. They are perfect as a breakfast option or a morning snack, especially when paired with a cup of strong steaming coffee from Starbucks. The subtle tartness of the blueberries complements the rich aroma and bold flavors of the coffee, making for an unforgettable pairing.

For a light and healthy meal, you can serve these muffins alongside fresh fruit, such as berries or sliced melons. The muffins’ sweetness pairs well with the tartness of fresh fruit, creating a balanced and satisfying combination that is perfect for any time of day.

If you’re feeling indulgent, top your muffins with creamy frosting or whipped cream to add an extra level of decadence to your muffin experience. Alternatively, you can crumble them up and sprinkle them over ice cream for a dessert treat that is sure to impress.

Another great way to enjoy these muffins is to heat them up and spread some butter on top. This transforms them into a buttery delight that is perfect for breakfast or even as a dessert option.

For those looking for something different, consider serving these muffins with lemon curd or honey. The sweetness of blueberries plays off of the tanginess provided by lemon curd, while honey’s golden sweetness complements the bursting flavor of the baked blueberries.

Regardless of how you choose to serve these delicious pastries, be sure to savor every bite!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Muffins so moist and fluffy, they’ll melt in your mouth”

So, you’ve made a batch of these irresistible blueberry muffins, and now you’re wondering what’s the best way to store them. Luckily, these muffins hold up quite well and can be enjoyed long after they’ve been baked. Here are some tips to keep your muffins fresh for longer:

Make-ahead: If you’re planning on making these muffins ahead of time, that’s no problem at all. Simply bake the muffins as directed and let them cool completely before transferring them to an airtight container or freezer-friendly bag. These muffins freeze beautifully and can last up to 3 months in the freezer.

Storing: If you want to store your muffins at room temperature, make sure that they are completely cooled down first. To prevent moisture from accumulating, it’s best to keep them in an airtight container or resealable bag. Muffins stored this way can last up to 5 days without going stale.

Reheating: If you prefer your muffins warm and gooey, there are several ways you can reheat them. One way is to place them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds on high power or until heated through. Alternatively, you can wrap the muffin in foil and reheat it in a preheated oven at 350°F (180°C) for 5-8 minutes.

An important note about reheating: be careful not to overheat your muffins as they may dry out or become tough. It’s also best not to toast them since the streusel topping may burn.

By following these guidelines, your blueberry muffins will taste just as delicious as when they were freshly baked. They make for a perfect breakfast-on-the-go, midday snack or even dessert paired with a cup of coffee or tea. So don’t hesitate to make a double batch of batter next time – your future self will thank you!

Tips for Perfect Results

“Satisfy your sweet tooth with these fruity muffins”

Now that you have the ingredient list and the recipe how-to, it’s time to work on making the perfect Starbucks Blueberry Muffins. Follow these tips for perfect results:

1. Don’t overmix the batter – over-mixing can result in tough muffins that aren’t as fluffy. Mix until just combined for best results.

2. Use frozen blueberries – fresh berries are great, but frozen ones work even better in this recipe. They will hold up better and won’t bleed into the batter as much.

3. Make an even streusel topping – this is what makes the muffins crunchy on top and soft inside. Make sure to mix it thoroughly and sprinkle evenly on each muffin.

4. Don’t skip the lemon zest – it adds a burst of freshness and complements the sweetness of the blueberries perfectly.

5. Use an ice cream scoop to fill muffin cups – this ensures that you have equal amounts of batter in each tin and your muffins come out uniformly sized.

6. Adjust baking time based on your oven – all ovens are different, so keep a watchful eye on the muffins after 15 minutes of baking time have elapsed and adjust accordingly until golden brown on top.

7. Let muffins cool before removing from pan – cooling them down will give them a chance to firm up and prevent crumbling when removed from the pan.

8. Enjoy with a freshly brewed cup of Starbucks coffee – there’s nothing quite like a morning coffee with a warm, freshly-baked blueberry muffin!

By following these tips, you’ll be able to make perfect Starbucks Blueberry Muffins every time!
