Cinnamon Blueberry Muffins Recipe

I prepare these muffins with the blueberries that grow wild along the rocky coast of Maine. I have worked on this recipe for several years and finally feel that I have it perfected.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • 1. In a small bowl, mix milk and lemon juice; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. Add egg and oil to milk mixture. Gently stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 3. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 22-24 minutes or a toothpick inserted in the muffin comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 dozen.

"This was my very first time making blueberry muffins and although I did make the recipe exactly as the directions called for, they did not have much taste at all AND they were quite "heavy". I did add a little cinnamon/sugar mix on the top for a little extra flavor, but I cant help but think maybe a little vanilla extract would have helped it along as well. 3 stars, no flavor, too heavy. Will make again, but with some adjustments."

"These were great, but needed a little something extra. So I added a streusel topping! Yum! I also used whole fat buttermilk instead of making my own with the lemon juice and milk."

"This looked so delicious, I doubled it! But I didn't have any oil, so I used 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce instead. Also delicious with a sprinkle of streusel on top (xombine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon to taste)."

"Very good. The only I will do different next time is sprinkle some sugar on top prior to baking. Otherwise this is a very good blueberry muffin."

"I have made these several times and I really like them. They are easy to make. I usually put a little turbinado sugar on top which gives a little more sweetness. Today, I used mace in place of the cinnamon because I had bought some for another recipe. It is good, but I think I like the cinnamon better. I also added some lemon zest. I have always used fresh berries or ones I froze myself. I don't know how commercially frozen berries would work but the berries I have used hold their shape and juiciness very well."
