Secrets to Making the Best Blueberry Muffins
Cornstarch softens the proteins in flour making the muffins soft, too. I use both oil and butter in this muffin recipe because the oil adds fluffiness while the butter adds flavor. Of course sugar on top never hurts, either.
Buttermilk also helps make muffins moist and tender breaking down the gluten as well as preventing the muffin from acquiring the blue tinge from the blueberries making them the pretty! If you don’t have buttermilk, don’t fret. You can make it in just a second with this easy 2 ingredient buttermilk recipe.
