Bursting with fresh blueberries with a tender crumb and sparkling sugar crust, these really are the best blueberry muffins. I’ve tried fussier recipes that call for mashing some of the blueberries into the batter or even swirling homemade blueberry jam into the mix, but there’s no need for all that — this simple recipe tops them all.
As you can see, I use both vanilla and almond extracts — that’s part of what makes these muffins so good. Vanilla is standard, but almond extract adds that unmistakable scent of almond, which complements the berries nicely.
For the blueberries, I prefer fresh but if you’re using frozen, be sure to stir them into the batter without thawing, otherwise they will turn the muffins purple!
Spoon the batter into a muffin tin lined with paper liners. (It’s important to use the liners, otherwise the blueberries will stick to the bottom of the pan, making the muffins difficult to remove.)
