Recipe by Ridgely
Yes they are called muffins, but more like little bluberry cakes. Dense, moist and very rich with a crunchy sugary topping. I always double my muffin recipes. This one I did, but did not double the crumb topping. I think it makes plenty. Enjoy!

- In a bowl with an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and set on medium high speed, beat the butter and sugar for 4 to 5 minutes, or until light and fluffy.

- Add the milk, alternating with dry ingredients, in 2 or 3 additions. Do not overmix.
- Fold in the blueberries using a spatula.
- To make crumb topping, in a bowl with an electric mixture fitted with paddle attachment, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and flour and mix on medium speed until crumbly.
- Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin.
- Top each with a generous tablespoon of crumb topping.
