Blueberry Muffins

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Baking Time: 20-25 minutes
Total Time: 40-45 minutes
Servings: 12 muffins

Intensity: Easy


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sourdough discard
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Prepare Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, whisk together the sourdough discard, melted butter, milk, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; the batter should be slightly lumpy.
  5. Add Blueberries:
    • Gently fold in the blueberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Fill Muffin Cups:
    • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  7. Bake Muffins:
    • If desired, sprinkle the tops of the muffins with turbinado sugar for a crunchy topping. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
