On the West Coast, we have many fields of blueberries in the neighborhood and there is no shortage of blueberries for baking. Blueberry stands are everywhere and knowing that they are just picked makes them taste that much better. We always buy lots of blueberries and make all the blueberry things, like lemon blueberry loaf, blueberry banana baked oatmeal, blueberry mojitos, blueberry galettes and one of our favorites, blueberry dutch baby pancakes!
How to Freeze Blueberries
Once we are blue in the face from eating too many blueberries, we freeze the berries.
- Start with giving the berries a good rinse in a colander.
- Dry the blueberries on a clean kitchen towel (or paper towel). Make sure they are fully dry.
- Place the berries on a baking tray and fast freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
- Pack the blueberries in zip top bags and pop them back in the freezer.
Blueberries can break down when frozen and then defrosted. We prefer fresh for this blueberry corn muffins recipe, but we do use frozen too. Pop them in right from frozen. The muffins may take a minute or two longer to bake depending on the size of the frozen berries.
We love having frozen blueberries on hand for smoothies, blueberry dutch baby pancakes and blueberry crisp.
How To Make Jiffy Blueberry Muffins Moist
It doesn’t get much easier or more delicious than using Jiffy cornbread mix to make your easy blueberry muffins. The perfect mix of ingredients in every Jiffy cornbread box makes it so easy to make moist, flavorful blueberry muffins. The secret to making Jiffy blueberry muffins moist is to combine the Jiffy mix with sour cream as well as a bit of milk. The creamy flavor of the sour cream with the blueberry cornbread may seem surprising but is heavenly.
How To Make Zesty Jiffy Blueberry Muffins
Adding the zest of a lemon to this easy blueberry muffins recipe makes for some tasty lemon blueberry corn muffins. We prefer the zest of a lemon, but lime zest will work too. Lemon zest with blueberries is like a fine wine with some imported cheese. They just seem to work in harmony.
These really are simple blueberry muffins to make:
- Mix together all ingredients except the blueberries
- Fold in blueberries
- Add batter to muffin tins and bake!
I use a 3 Tablespoon cookie scoop to add the batter to the muffin tins. It keeps things neater, especially when the kids are helping.

My 10 year old daughter loves making these easy blueberry muffins. To her, these are the best ever cornbread muffins. She has made them to share with her friends at Girls Guides camp and whipped up a batch of blueberry corn mini muffins in 5-10 minutes. These muffins come together so quickly and easily, even for my daughter, they’re a piece of cake – or muffin if you prefer. If she’s feeling a little tropical, she goes for the Banana Coconut Muffins with Pineapple instead!
We make blueberry cornbread muffins to add to the kids lunches, along with even more blueberries. We love packing them in hard cupcake holders to hold their shape in the kids lunchboxes!
