Blueberry Muffin Recipe

Restaurant Muffin Recipe

This picture says it all about the Blueberry Muffin Recipe!

Don't "muff it!" This restaurant muffin recipe is the second most customer requested muffin recipe ever. It is a close “second” to the award winning Bran Muffin Recipe.

And if you’ve discovered the top secret restaurant recipe for a bran muffin and tried that one, YOU KNOW you have just “surfed onto” another “gem.” It was voted a favorite restaurant recipe.

Restaurant customers are a diverse group of people, but it is wonderful to know we can at least agree on certain things. Everyone loves these muffins.

Preparation time: approximately 20 minutes. 16-20 servings.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries (or Marion Berries, see note below)
  • Melted butter and sugar (note instructions)



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar and vanilla
  • Add eggs and beat
  • Then blend in sour cream and set aside
  • In a separate mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; fold into creamed mixture gently (DO NOT OVER MIX)
  • Fold in blueberries and spoon into muffin pans 3/4 full
  • Bake muffins 24 to 26 minutes. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick
  • If it comes out “clean,” your muffins are done
  • Transfer to cooling racks and while still warm, dip muffin tops in melted butter and then into the sugar

I use this same muffin recipe but sometimes substitute Marion Berries instead of blueberries. I ALWAYS SELL OUT!

This is an easy restaurant recipe that results in a delicious muffin with blueberries! Enjoy your muffins and the people you share them with!


Did you know? There's been a huge growth in increase in direct consumer consumption of blueberries. Blueberries are now the second best selling berry in America. (Strawberries are still number one.)
