Love the classic blueberry muffin? Learn how to make your favorite breakfast treat at home with this simple recipe using fresh berries.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream or whole Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar


  1. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the egg until combined. Add the sugar and continue whisking until a thick, runny paste forms, about 30 seconds. Add the melted butter and whisk until incorporated. Add the sour cream and vanilla and whisk until incorporated.
  4. With your hands, gently the fold the berries into the dry mixture to coat. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and lightly fold together with a spatula. Mix just until combined – the batter will be very thick.
  5. Use a large scooper to scoop the batter into the muffin cups. They will be very full.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean and the tops and edges are a very light brown. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring the muffins to a cooling rack to cool completely.
