Helpful Tips to remember
- Do not over-mix the batter ,because this will make the muffins tough and chewy, instead of being soft and tender. Use the whisk gently, until all the ingredients are well combined.
- Folding the batter with a spatula half way through mixing helps, especially when you have added the coated blueberries. This prevents the berries from breaking and bleeding into the batter.
- To prevent lumps from forming always add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. This will also make the muffins soft and tender when baked, as there are very few or no lumps.

How to prevent blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the batter when baking?
Toss them with a tablespoon of the flour mixture (just enough flour to coat the berries). Then fold this flour-coated berries into the batter as a very last step before baking.
This coating of flour absorbs some of the liquid released by the berries as it bakes and keeps them in the place until the muffin crumb has set.
