From cupcakes and muffins to pies and cakes, blueberries can be added to more desserts than we can count. They’ll instantly make them extra sweet, refreshing, and tasty, and here are some of the best ways you can use them to boost the flavor of your favorite desserts.

Fresh Blueberries

Unless the recipe specifically calls for a different type of blueberries, fresh ones are always the best possible option. Their flavor is unmatched and they can take all sorts of baked goods and desserts to the next level.

Frozen Blueberries

Frozen blueberries can replace fresh ones when they’re not in season. Just don’t forget to thaw them first so they wouldn’t release excess water into your batter or cookie dough because additional moisture could ruin their texture.

Dried Blueberries

Dried blueberries don’t serve the same purpose and have a different taste when compared to fresh and frozen ones, but they can do a great job making your desserts and baked treats chewier.

Blueberry Jam

Blueberry jam can be used in several different ways. In addition to adding sweetness to your desserts, it can do a great job altering their color. You can also use it as a topping or a glaze with some types of desserts and baked goods.
