Easy Homemade Blueberry Muffins with Streusel Topping

This is the best blueberry muffins recipe I have ever made. They’re super moist, loaded with fresh blueberries, and topped with a crunchy cinnamon streusel.

What’s even better is that these muffins are easy to make (without a mixer!) and only take 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish!

The secret ingredient to make these muffins super moist and tender is sour cream. I tested these muffins with buttermilk and greek yogurt, and I found that sour cream gives the muffins the best consistency. They’re super moist on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside. Muffin perfection!

Key Ingredients

This homemade blueberry muffins recipe makes a total of 14 muffins. I bake my muffins in two batches using a 12 cup muffin pan. However, you could make mini muffins if you wanted to use a smaller muffin tin.

I used only brown sugar in the muffins and the streusel. Substituting brown sugar versus white sugar gives the muffins an extra crunch on the outside and a moist center. The other muffin ingredients include: all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, pure vanilla extract, vegetable oil, an egg (at room temperature), and fresh or frozen blueberries.

For the streusel topping, you’ll need: unsalted butter (melted), the brown sugar, all-purpose flour, and cinnamon. That’s it!

How To Make Blueberry Muffins

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • While that’s preheating, whisk together your dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, salt and baking powder) in a large bowl until combined.
  • Then, in a medium bowl, combine the the wet ingredients (sour cream, vanilla, vegetable oil, and the egg).
  • Add egg mixture to dry ingredients, and fold gently. (Do not over mix! That will result in a dense, not fluffy muffin.) Then, gently fold in blueberries.
  • Scoop batter into a muffin pan lined with baking cups. Fill almost all the way up, about three-quarters of the way (leaving room for them to rise).
  • Next, quickly make the streusel by combining the softened butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon to a small bowl until its texture is like wet sand.
  • Sprinkle each muffin with some streusel.
  • Place the prepared muffins in the preheated oven, and bake for 20 minutes or until muffins are set. (Test for doneness by sticking a toothpick or knife in the center and make sure it comes out clean.)
  • Serve with a pad of butter or as-is, and enjoy!

Tips for Success

  • Do not over-mix the batter! This will create a tough muffin.
  • Always allow the muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes in the pan before taking them out to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Gently fold in your blueberries so they don’t burst. You can also toss them in a little flour to keep them from sinking t the bottom of the muffin while baking.
  • Take these homemade blueberry muffins up a notch by drizzling them with a powdered sugar glaze (just water or milk and confectioners sugar) once they’ve cooled.

  • I just baked these muffins and they are absolutely delicious, the flavor is very nice, not too sweet, and I really love the texture. This recipe will certainty go into my favorite recipes.

  • Eve

    These were really delicious–probably the best muffins I’ve ever had. I loved that they were lightly sweet but not cake-like. I didn’t feel guilty about eating them for breakfast. 🙂

    I ran out of sour cream and used Greek yogurt for the last 1/2 cup I needed. That seemed to work just fine. I made the recipe while looking at my mobile phone and was too lazy to scroll down to the directions. The recipe was actually very forgiving, but it might have been easier to stir if I had mixed the dry and wet ingredients separately as the recipe directs, and then folded the wet ingredients into the dry.

    I had a ton of streusel topping left over, so I might suggest halfing the streusel recipe to those who are light with the streusel sprinkling. I added some oats on a few muffins, and that was a nice touch.

    Thank you so much for the recipe. I’m looking forward to using it again. I’m proud to have your muffin photos pinned to my Pinterest wall.

    Just made these now. Substituted plain yogurt for sour cream as I didn’t have it. Really nice texture and crunch, could be a bit sweeter for me but otherwise good!

  • Heather

    I made these this morning with fresh blueberries from the local farmers market and they came out awesome! My family and I love them. Delicious! I wouldn’t change a thing!

  • melinda

    I was not really fond of this recipe. I followed the instructions just the way they were and the muffins didn’t come out that great. I use a lot of recipes from the internet and I will not be using this one again. It had to be one of the worst blueberry muffin recipes I have tried.

  • Hi Melinda,

    Thank you so much for trying this recipe. I am so sorry it did not come out the way you liked. I have personally made this recipe numerous times and it has come out great for me each time. I have also had readers comment that they loved the recipe. Not sure why they didn’t turn out for you.

    Thanks again for trying!


  • Krista
