I found several blueberry streusel muffins here, but none like this one....most had lemon zest in them, and I am just not a fan of lemon zest in my blueberry muffins. So, I decided to post mine as well. Sometimes I add a few sliver almonds to the streusel topping, but I really prefer it as posted.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour (If pressed and I don't have it, I use 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3⁄4 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups blueberries
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter, slightly softened
- Combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, and 3/4 cups sugar in a large bowl; stir well. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
- Combine the buttermilk, 1/2 cup melted butter, eggs, and vanilla, beating well with a wire whisk. Add to the flour mixture, stirring just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Gently fold in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into paper-lined muffin pans, filling 2/3 full.
- Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 3 tbsp flour, cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp salt. Cut in 1 tbsp butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle mixture evenly over the batter.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans immediately and cool on a wire rack.
I about fainted after trying one of these gems last night. They are so moist, they are bursting with blueberries and have a light texture in the muffin itself. I absolutely love the topping mixture and how that gives a bit of zing with the cinnamon but not a lot of sweet which is perfect. I followed the recipe exactly (even with whole wheat flour) and received 12 full sized muffins and 8 mini muffins. One thing I learned is to make sure you don't overfill the cups or make sure you spray the muffin tin top with non-stick spray as when it overflows for that nice cap on the muffin it sticks to the pan. I'll definitely be making these again as blueberries come into season this spring. Made for Photo Tag.
Fabulous! Just loved the topping. I used fresh blueberries and these turned out perfectly. I did use muffin liners and also sprayed with no-stick spray. Therse were devoured at breakfast and I'll definitely make them again.
Delicious and easy to make (I especially like that this recipe makes 1 1/2 dozen muffins, six in the freezer and 12 for breakfast!). We probably used a bit more whole wheat than white flour with wonderful results! Thanks for sharing!
