grandma's blueberry muffins.

These are my favorite muffins in the world. As you can see from the name, they are my Grandma's recipe which makes them even more special to bake. Not to mention, they taste amazing- I hope you think so too!

I am totally on a blueberry kick right now and just had to make these blueberry muffins. I have been baking these muffins with my mom and sister since I can remember. Whenever we got ready to bake something, my mom would ask my sister or me to get the recipe card. My mom has a million and one recipe cards so sometimes the recipe card we needed was hard to find.  The recipe card for this one, however, was always the easiest to find- it was the one that was smudged and spilled on because we used it all. the. time. As much as we made them, I never got tired of them.

These muffins are sweet, moist, soft, and just plain perfect. Many people like spitting them in half, and putting butter on it. Not me, though- I like them just as is. :)


grandma's blueberry muffin recipe:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  2. Grease or line 24 muffin tins with paper liners. 
  3. Mix flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Cut in butter until crumb mixture forms.  I used a pastry knife, but a food processor works even better. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture. Set aside.
  4. Put eggs, milk, and vanilla into the crumb mixture in large bowl. Beat until smooth, then gently fold in blueberries. Fill your 24 muffin tins 3/4 full.
  5. Place reserved crumb mixture into a small bowl, then dribble in melted butter. Toss with a fork to make crumbs. Sprinkle on top of each muffin cup.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until crumb topping is golden brown.


  1. My mom has those recipe cards, too! It's so hard to find any recipe! Much easier on a blog with a search engine. :)
    These are fabulous! I love the tops!

  2. These look and sound divine. It certainly has to be a winner if it's been passed down 3 generations to you. Love the different with making the crumb mixtures too. Going to have to try these. Love blueberry muffins, and like you, perfect on their own at any time of the day. In fact, I'm craving some now past midnight!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
