Starbucks Blueberry Muffin Copycat Recipe-2

How to make Starbucks blueberry muffins?

To make these fluffy two-biters, you’ll need a muffin tin and a few muffin liners. That’s about it for the hardware, along with a few mixing bowls and a stand mixer, if you have one.

For the ingredients, this is a fairly standard recipe that calls for butter, sugar, eggs, all-purpose flour, vanilla extract and the likes.

The unique ingredients here are the yogurt, which gives creaminess and a slight tang to the muffins, fresh blueberries, the stars of the show, and lemon zest. I guess this makes the muffins from Starbucks so complex and sophisticated!

The last step has to do with coarse sugar dusting. You’ve surely noticed, the original muffins have sweet specks on top; well, that’s the sugar.

Tips for the perfect blueberry muffins

  • For these, you want to work with ripe, fresh blueberries. Frozen fruit doesn’t make the cut.

  • Work with cold ingredients, when possible, from the eggs to the yogurt and the fruit. It helps get a smoother muffin dough faster. Only the butter should be slightly soft.
