How do you sweeten blueberries for muffins?
Toss them in sugar, honey, or maple syrup, along with a little fresh juice or alcohol (an herbal liqueur, like elderflower spirit, would be great). You don’t need a lot to get the berries rocking; a quarter- to a half-cup of juice or booze, and about double the amount of sugar, is all you need.
How bad is a blueberry muffin for you?

Why are my blueberry muffins flat?
Some of the usual reasons for muffins to come out flat are: you forgot the baking powder (but then they are a complete failure, I guess you would have noticed if that had happened) you let the prepared batter sit for too long before putting it into the oven, and the baking powder spent itself before the baking began.
Is Betty Crocker muffin mix better with milk or water?
A. We don’t recommend using milk instead of water because the milk can make holes in the paper liners or the sides of the muffins.
How do I make my muffins Fluffy?
Having eggs, butter, and milk at room temperature helps them form a smooth mixture that traps air and expands when heated in the oven. That expansion makes your muffins fluffy and light.
How do you get muffins to rise high?
If you put the batter into a warm oven, the muffins may not rise as beautifully. Stir all your dry ingredients together very well with a whisk. The idea is to distribute the leavening agents (baking powder or baking soda) evenly throughout the batter so that the muffins will achieve a lovely texture and a good rise.

How do you keep cupcakes from sinking in ingredients?
