Frozen blueberries will almost “melt” when you bake the muffins, because the skin becomes more fragile after freezing. If you use fresh blueberries, they will be more intact after baking and will sometimes still “burst” when you bite into them. As for the taste, some blueberries will have more taste than others.

What does adding an extra egg do to muffins?
