Top tips for making blueberry muffins
For the best blueberry muffins, don't over-mix the ingredients. A lumpy batter is perfect.
If you want to stop your blueberries from sinking in muffins, coat the blueberries with a dusting of flour. The flour will help them to stick to the muffin mix and stay in place instead of sinking to the bottom when baking.
Frozen berries work just as well as fresh berries, and may be less likely to burst during baking. If you’re unsure about cooking with frozen berries place them in some warm water to defrost.
