History of Blueberry Muffins

Did you know that Blueberry Muffins are British?

Blueberry muffins evolved from yeast-leavened bread-like goods in 18th-century Britain to the sweet, cake-like treats we enjoy today.

Their popularity soared in the US during the 20th century with the abundance of blueberries. These iconic treats are now cherished for their tart bursts of flavour and soft texture, embodying the joy of baking and homemade goodness.

Muffin Serving Suggestions

  • A dollop of whipped cream for added indulgence.
  • Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of honey for a wholesome twist.
  • Cream cheese spread for a creamy contrast.
  • Fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries) for a burst of colour and flavour.
  • A side of scrambled eggs or omelette for a balanced breakfast.
  • With a steaming cup of herbal tea or a frothy latte for a cosy breakfast.

Tips and Tricks for Success

  • Toss the blueberries in a little flour before adding them to the batter to prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
  • Avoid over-mixing the batter to ensure a tender texture.
  • Don’t over bake the muffins; a toothpick inserted into the centre should come out with a few moist crumbs.

How to Store Blueberry Muffins

  • Keep the muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • For longer storage, refrigerate them for up to 5 days, or you can freeze them using the guide below.

How to Freeze Blueberry Muffins

  1. Cool Completely: Allow the muffins to cool completely before freezing.
  2. Wrap Individually: Wrap each muffin tightly in plastic wrap to prevent freezer burn.

  5. Thaw: Remove the desired number of muffins from the freezer and let them thaw at room temperature for a few hours or overnight.

How to Reheat Blueberry Muffins

  • Microwave: Wrap a muffin in a damp paper towel and microwave for about 20-30 seconds on medium power. Check and adjust the time as needed.
  • Toaster Oven: Slice the muffin in half and lightly toast in a toaster oven for a few minutes until warm and slightly crispy.
  • Steamer: Place muffins in a steamer for a few minutes until warmed, maintaining their moisture.
