This 20 Minute Moist Blueberry Muffin Recipe is easy, delicious, and packed with blueberries! This recipe makes a perfect small-batch, approximately 8 muffins.



  • 1/4 cup (40 grams) shortening
  • 1/2 cup (90 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg (47 grams)
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) milk
  • 11/2 cup (184 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 21/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Large granulated sugar for sprinkling on tops


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease about 8 cups in your muffin tin.
  2. First, cream together the shortening and sugar until smooth and no clumps remain. Then, add in the egg and milk and combine thoroughly, making sure to not overmix your batter.
  3. Add the flour and baking powder and mix well with a rubber spatula to ensure you do not overmix your batter.
  4. Gently fold in the fresh or frozen blueberries until evenly dispersed.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tins, about 2/3rds full. If desired, sprinkle some large granulated sugar on the tops of the muffins.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Insert toothpick into the center of a muffin to determine doneness. If any batter or crumbs come out on the toothpick add more time. If it comes out clean, remove from the oven.
  7. Allow the muffins to cool for 5 -10 minutes before eating.
