Blueberry Muffins: The Perfect Summer Treat

During the hot summer months, I love cooling down with a tall glass of iced coffee—but I also love having a sweet treat to go with it, like a muffin. I was excited to make muffins after I bought fresh blueberries at the store. I love blueberries.

I have tried many different muffin recipes over the years, and I believe this recipe is the best I've tried. I did make a few adjustments to the original recipe; I replaced butter with vegetable oil, milk with half and half, and all-purpose flour with self-raising flour. I also added two teaspoons of lemon juice to enhance the flavor. Trust me. You will love it!

I do have a special tip that you'll see in the instructions below: I add a little flour to the blueberries before combining them with the batter in order to keep them from sinking to the bottom.

These blueberry muffins are super easy to make, and they are a perfect summer treat for you and your family. Imagine sitting on the porch in the afternoon, sipping iced coffee, and eating these yummy and moist muffins. They are perfect for a picnic, too! I hope you will try this recipe and that you will like these delicious blueberries muffins as much as we do!

      Yea, the recipe was for 12 muffins, and they were all gone. I should have baked more than that :) They were smaller size than the regular size that we can find at the store or bakery. I hope you will try this recipe. Thank you for commenting.

      Thank you, Danny. Yea, blueberries are higher with antioxidant content so, they are very healthy. I still have leftover fresh blueberries, I thought to use them for making a smoothie.
