Tips For Baking With Blueberries
Before we get to these recipes, I wanted to share a few important tips when you bake blueberry recipes.
Fold Blueberries In Gently
In other words, don’t mix the batter too much after you add the blueberries. Be very careful when you incorporate them into the mixture. If you smash the blueberries or cause the juice to leak out, it might turn your batter blue.
Use Fresh Blueberries
Fresh blueberries will always have the best taste! Grab some from the Farmer’s Market if you are lucky enough to live near fresh blueberry farms.
Thaw Frozen Blueberries
If you use frozen blueberries, let them thaw first, and then use a paper towel to remove the extra moisture gently. Baking frozen blueberries while frozen could cause the dessert to have more moisture in it, which might throw off the consistency.
