Frozen blueberries work fine but allow them to defrost and get a cup measure once they've defrosted. Also make sure you don't have too much excess liquid from the defrosting

Yes, frozen blueberries work just fine. Follow Monita's advise; her suggestions are exactly what I do when using frozen berries. Bon appetit!

If you can find IQF berries (sold in a bag and roll around like marbles), you don't need to defrost them. Even when blueberries are in season, I often freeze them before adding them to baked goods. They don't break open or bleed that way and they quickly thaw while cooking.
