Blueberry Mini Muffins

"These bite-size muffins are popular in our family," reports Suzanne Fredette of Littleton, Massachusetts. "They're especially nice for potlucks since they leave enough room on your plate to try all the other dishes."

    This recipe is delicious! If you use frozen blueberries they will bleed and turn your muffins blue, it’s inevitable. It doesn’t change the taste and personally I think it looks cute. I think coarse sugar would be better for sprinkling on top. I used regular granulated sugar and most of it baked into the muffin and you could hardly tell I sprinkled them at all (just a tip!). I halved the recipe and it made 30 mini muffins. I filled mine very full though. This is a recipe that domes nicely instead of over flowing and creating a muffin top muffin (you know what I mean). I recommend this recipe.

    My muffins turned out purple using frozen blueberries. I tried to prevent it by tossing them with a bit of flour before mixing them in.

    I was very disappointed in this recipe. I followed the recipe meticulously but they came out heavy and blah and they never got brown - guess I needed to sprinkle the sugar on top. But there are too many recipes out there to waste my time and ingredients trying to fix this one. And by the way, I just quit baking after 84. Enough is enough. And please note, the time needed to fill the mini muffin papers/tins is significant with this very thick dough. I was in the kitchen for probably 3 hours.

    Apology in advance for the necropost, but I recently baked this twice, all with small modifications. The first time - a couple of weeks ago - I followed the recipe exactly except that I replaced the buttermilk with regular milk and we put 1 cup of sugar as opposed to 2 cups of sugar and my mom melted the butter and she literally put in the blueberries in the batter. It came up beautifully, but it wasn't as sugary as I liked, even with a sprinkling of sugar on top. In the second time (yesterday) - again I replaced the buttermilk with regular milk but, since my mom couldn't find frozen/fresh blueberries, had to buy a blueberry mix/substitute, we put cake flour and I insisted that we should put in 2 cups of sugar. It went up fine, except it was a touch too milky because the blueberry mix required more milk and the blueberries were in the bottom of the batter (although we put the mix in the bottom with the flour on top). Will bake again, yummy! By the way, if you use the bigger muffin tins, it takes about 20-30 more minutes to completely bake. Remember, when in doubt, use the toothpick test!

    This recipe baked up beautifully but it made 74 mini muffins - not 47!! Hopefully, they will freeze well. Sprinkled with sugan and that made it pretty. Also, if you have a choice about the size of blueberries you use, it is best to use a smaller berry. These are small and it would be better with smaller berries.

    These mini muffins were a hit with my husband and two boys. Just the right amount of blueberry goodness! These would be a perfect after shool snack. I will be making them more often.

    Careful when folding in berries. My muffins turned purple
