Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Glaze (VIDEO)

These Blueberry Muffins are bursting with fresh blueberry flavor. They have a soft and moist crumb and puff up perfectly. The lemon glaze makes them completely irresistible and they always disappear fast! These muffins were inspired by our famous Blueberry Cake.

Watch the video tutorial and see how easy it is to make blueberry muffins from scratch.

We love muffins, from Banana Muffins to Breakfast Egg Muffins – they are easy to serve and fun to eat. They’re also a great snack on the go. This blueberry muffin recipe couldn’t be easier – both the muffin and the lemon glaze. I scored major points with my family and they devoured these quickly.

The Best Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Put that boxed mix down! You’ll take one look at the tiny jar of shriveled blueberries that come in the boxed mix and be disappointed (speaking from experience). The texture of these is just right and homemade muffins are 100 times better than storebought.

Really, these homemade Blueberry Muffins look and taste like something out of a fancy bakery but even better because you get to eat them warm and so fresh from the oven.

Ingredients for Blueberry Muffins

  • Eggs – should be at room temperature
  • Sugar – sweetens the muffins, holds on to moisture so the muffins will stay fresh longer, and encourages browning in the oven.
  • Sour cream – adds moisture and balances the flavor
  • Oil – we use extra light olive oil, but canola oil or vegetable oil will work
  • Vanilla and Salt – add balanced flavor
  • Flour – all-purpose flour creates the best muffin crumb
  • Baking powder – leavening to help the muffins rise
  • Lemon – use the zest and juice from 1 lemon
  • Blueberries – fresh is best, but you can substitute frozen or dried (see notes below)

Pro Tip: Measuring correctly in baking is critical. Watch our quick video tutorial on how to measure ingredients accurately.

How to Make Blueberry Muffins

This blueberry muffin recipe is so simple and the key to success is not to over-mix after beating the eggs and sugar. You want to see tiny lumps in the batter after mixing in the flour and it should not be perfectly smooth. I used an electric hand mixer to beat the eggs and sugar then added the flour, zest and lemon juice with a whisk and finally folded in the blueberries with a spatula.

Step by step how to make blueberry muffins

Once the muffins are out of the oven, remove the muffins from the tin and let them cool on a wire rack. It’s best to let them cool to room temperature before adding glaze.

The Best Glaze for Muffins

You will fall in love with this lemon glaze. It adds just the right amount of exciting tangy lemon flavor. Combine the powdered sugar, zest and add lemon juice to reach your desired consistency. Easy peasy!

Stirring ingredients to make muffin glaze

This Blueberry Muffin recipe is easy and a real treat. You can even freeze the blueberry muffins (without the glaze) to enjoy when the craving strikes.

Common Questions

Are these healthy blueberry muffins?

Using all-natural ingredients is generally a better idea than a boxed mix, but readers have reported cutting the sugar in half to cut the calories.

Can I substitute the sour cream?

Several readers have reported great results substituting sour cream with plain Greek Yogurt (whole milk or low fat yogurt is ok).

Can I use other berries?

Yes, you can substitute the blueberries with just about any berry. See our Mixed Berry Muffins for inspiration.

Why are my muffins dense?

Over-mixing the batter is the #1 reason that muffins are dense. The batter should be lumpy. Also, be sure to measure ingredients correctly.

Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes, do not thaw, but fold in frozen blueberries directly into the batter. Avoid over-mixing after adding frozen blueberries so your batter does not change color.

Can I use dried blueberries?

Yes, you can fold in 1 cup dried blueberries instead of fresh.

    Hey Natasha! I’ve tried many of your recipes and they always turn out great.

    But for some reason these muffin didn’t work. They didn’t have the cake texture. It was just too fudgy. Any idea in what i did wrong?

    In my opinion, maybe i over mixed but I’m not sure.

      Hi Pearl! I’m sorry they didn’t turn out well for you. I’m happy to help troubleshoot. A few things I could think of, look over the recipe again to make sure you didn’t miss anything or use different ingredients. Over mixing the batter can cause it to be dense and gummy so that definitely can be a cause. Here is a helpful tutorial on how I measure my ingredients. Often time, people use too much flour. I also recommend getting an internal oven thermometer to check your oven temperature to see if it heats correctly. Make sure the oven is fully preheated before putting the muffins in to bake. I hope this helps.

    Made these this morning almost exactly as written (used avocado oil rather than EVOO or vegetable). I also whisked the eggs and sugar by hand, and still got wonderful results. The muffins came out super moist and fluffy and we loved the sweet lemon glaze. These are very comforting and nostalgic, sweet but we’ll balanced with the tartness of the lemon. So easy to make too – these came together really quickly and I baked for 25 mins. Looking forward to making these again soon.

    To-die-for, fresh-tasting muffins!
    I used my new parchment muffin liners and was concerned, because it didn’t seem like there’d be enough batter to go around for 12 muffins. But, they rose beautifully and came out just perfect at 25 mins. I followed directions, except cut the sugar by 1/4 C. (I just always do that to cut back.)
    The glaze is ideal! Thanks Natasha. First recipe I’ve reviewed here.

      February 26, 2022

      Hi Nancy, we make it as soon as the batter is ready; otherwise, I worry the batter will lose its volume if stored. You can make the muffins ahead though, these stay great at room temperature overnight, but I would refrigerate them if keeping longer than that. They keep refrigerated well for 3-5 days (we haven’t tested them longer because they always disappear by then :)).

    This is my go-to muffin recipe. Best I’ve ever had. The sour cream makes fluffy, moist texture and the most delightful crumb. It’s not overly sweet. The batter is thick, but doesn’t produce a “heavy” dough and you don’t feel like you’re eating something so rich and greasy and unhealthy like store bought. Easy to make. With the sour cream, it can be wet so you have to be mindful of your add-ins that it bakes up properly..but it’s a winner!

    Hi Natasha, I love this recipe, but I can’t use egg. Is it ok to use egg subsidize powder instead ?Thanks for responding.

    Just a note. Berries are mostly water, therefore one cup of dried blueberries is not equal to one cup of fresh or frozen blueberries. Dried blueberries have no moisture, so your batter is losing a great deal of water and that moisture must be added back, or use milk, sour cream or buttermilk. In doing this, the dried blueberries should also be reduced as one cup of fresh blueberries is actually equal to 1/4 cup of dried blueberries, with added moisture.

    I always heat the glaze to hot in
    the microwave, use regular sugar -dissolves the sugar and the glaze sets with no drips when cool on the muffins

      Are you allowing them to completely cool before you seal it? If you put in fridge when they’re still warm from the oven, it’s condensation from the steam escaping the food

      Hi Jewel, We enjoy these fresh and run out before having the opportunity to freeze. I would assume if stored in an airtight container before glazing, they will freeze well if you’re trying to keep them for longer. Let me know how it goes if you try it.

        We were trying to figure out the best way to store them for the week as we eat them for lunches, what I found work best was leaving them out overnight without any sort of cover. I also found that after you put them in the fridge to leave the lid off your Tupperware for a day or two because they’re just way too moist which is great if you’re going to eat them right away, but terrible if you put it in an airtight container they get so soggy. Even then it’s a work in progress. Next time I make them I’m going to freeze them right away, and then pull them out the night before for the next day and we’ll see how that goes I’ll update you!

    I made this blueberry muffin recipe in my Bundt pan and it came out great. I baked it at 350 for 45 minutes. The batter is thick but I tossed the blueberries in a tablespoon of flour just to ensure that they didn’t sink to the bottom of the pan. It came out perfect and my family loved it!
