Blueberry Muffins from Scratch will transport you to a heavenly place. To a light, breezy, sunny, and pleasant summer’s day. To the middle of nowhere.  To a small lake cottage on a small lake, with the gentle rustling of leaves and the muffled sounds of children playing and enjoying boyhood. These muffins will take you there.

 Blueberry Muffins from Scratch

OK, the location I described is where these blueberry muffins from scratch came to be. At our small cottage on a small lake in the Middle of Nowhere, Wisconsin. It’s my happy place, especially in the summertime with our boys. Today, these muffins sealed the deal to my sentiments.

Maybe it’s because blue has always been my favorite color. Maybe it’s because I grew up picking blueberries in the wild, the better part of half a century ago with my mom at my side and a tin pail tied around my waste.

Maybe it’s because summer is my favorite season. Truly, it’s because these blueberry muffins from scratch are so easy to make and equally wonderful to enjoy.

With just a pinch of a pinch of raw, turbinado sugar as a topping, each bite is met with a light but discernible crunch, followed by the soft, warm explosion of a round of blueberries from within.

If you have fresh blueberries on hand, turn your oven on, dig out a mixing bowl, and find your happy place. These Blueberry Muffins from Scratch will get you there.  Long live summer.  -Dan

  1. Wow, look at those burst of blueberries! I love it! I can just imagine tearing one of these muffins in half and being greeted with the warm scent of butter and vanilla and tart blueberries…all while sitting on the porch of a gorgeous lakeside cottage <3

  2. I love blueberry muffins, I would eat one for breakfast every single day! And these are LOADED with blueberries, nicely done!

    1. Thanks so much, Katalina. And yes indeed, these are loaded with blueberries! Initially, I thought perhaps I added too many of them, then I came to my senses and realized that was not possible!

  5. Loved your post! I have a favorite blueberry muffin recipe from scratch that came from my husband’s first wife! I was indeed transported to a small cottage in the Middle of Nowhere Wisconsin smelling the lovely muffins and could feel the warm sunshine caressing my face as I looked upon the lake! (Sorry, LOL, just getting a little corny – hope you like corny.)

    1. Love corny, when it comes from you, Patty! Thanks so much for the (corny) comments We are having a fun week, filled with blueberries, a new mancave for the boys, country fairs, and lots of summer!
