½ cup milk
1 tbsp lemon juice/vinegar
½ cup Greek yogurt (if you don’t have greek yogurt just use 1 cup buttermilk)
¾ cup melted butter
2 tbsp vanilla
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup blueberries, divided
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl, combine milk and lemon juice, leave for 5 minutes.
Add the eggs, butter, vanilla, and sugar.
In a large bowl, mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add the wet batter into the dry batter in two parts, mix until combined but there are still lumps.
Fold in 1/2 cup blueberries, don't over-mix, there should still be lumps.
Spoon the batter into lined muffins tins (I had enough for 14), and add the rest of the blueberries to the tops.
Bake for 25 minutes.
The buttermilk (made in step 2) will make the batter lumpy, and that's okay! Mix the batter to combine the wet and dry mixes, but don't mix the lumps out.
Instead of Greek yogurt
Use sour cream or cream cheese if you don't have Greek yogurt.
Sprinkle some coarse sugar
Make them even better with coarse sugar topping! Just sprinkle some one before you put them in the oven.
Add some zest
Mix in some orange or lemon zest for some more flavor! If you use a lemon for the buttermilk, this is a great way to use the whole fruit. Feel free to add the zest of the entire fruit.
Baked goods are often high in sugar, fat, and carbs. As someone who bakes often, I have to watch how much I eat. I love to eat. I do. I also love to have a healthy body. That being said, I appreciate when a recipe states a calorie count. So I've decided to provide that for you.
Total calories: 3,248
Divide that by how many muffins you made. I made 14, so each muffin is 232 calories. Your calories may vary depending on what ingredients you use, like if you used Greek yogurt vs sour cream. As always, eat in moderation.
These muffins are delicious. Why? Because of butter, Greek yogurt, AND buttermilk! That trio works together to create that distinct bakery taste. Add a good amount of vanilla and blueberries for perfection. I wish these muffins had more of a rise, but they taste so darn good that I'm not complaining.
