National Blueberry Muffin Day is celebrated on July 11th in the United States. A rich, tasty blueberry muffin, in my opinion, is the ideal way to commemorate the occasion! There is nothing better than making a batch of delicious blueberry muffins for my family this weekend with these deep purple berries. Blueberry muffins are a family favourite.
If only we could get up at the crack of dawn to celebrate National Blueberry Muffin Day on Sunday! Blueberry muffins are one of my all-time favourite baked items to make at home, whether for breakfast or dessert.

It’s a great occasion, so let’s rejoice together. This weekend, we’re going to celebrate National Blueberry Muffin Day, and I’ve got some great plans!

Delicious Homemade Blueberry Muffin Recipe
This is the best muffin recipe I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried a lot of them. A few changes were made to the original recipe: I used vegetable oil instead of butter, half and half instead of milk, and self-raising flour instead of all-purpose flour. To make it taste even better, I threw in two teaspoons of fresh lemon juice. I’m confident in my abilities. It’s going to be fantastic!
Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Yield: 12 muffins
- 2 cups self-raising flour or all-purpose flour
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1/2 cup half and half, or any milk you prefer
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil or 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- The oven should be preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Sugar and eggs are mixed in a large basin. Stir the mixture with a whisker until it is well blended.
- Toss in the vanilla extract and the half & half, vegetable oil, and lemon juice. Mix the ingredients.
- Stir in the flour and blend thoroughly.
- Toss the blueberries in a separate basin with a little flour. By mixing in some flour with the blueberries, you can prevent them from sinking to the bottom of your muffins.
- Stir in the blueberries after adding them to the mixture. Remove from consideration.
- Meanwhile, prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by lining it with parchment paper.
Fill each muffin cup two-thirds of the way full with batter.
- Take out of the oven after 28 minutes and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
- Allow the muffins to cool completely on a wire cooling rack.
- When served with iced coffee or tea, serve the blueberry muffin warm or at room temperature
