Blueberry Muffins

Today was a very happy day for me because my best friend Amanda and her new husband Travis moved to Indy. I’m so happy they are closer to us now so we can see each other more often. Ben and I helped them move in, and I thought it would be nice to bring a little goody basket for them since, having moved several times myself, I know stocking the fridge usually isn’t high on the list of priorities when you first get to a new place. I made a few different things to put in the basket including these muffins.

I’ve been making these blueberry muffins for quite some time now. This recipe is from Allrecipes and I must say, it is fabulous. It is best with fresh blueberries (I think that is always the case) but is still very tasty in the winter when only frozen are available. The only change I typically make is that I halve the amount of streusel topping. The original recipe makes more than twice what you actually need to top the muffins. The recipe below is with my changes.

Blueberry Muffins
yield: 8 muffins

Ingredients:
1 ½ c. flour
¾ c. sugar
½ t. salt
2 t. baking powder
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
~1/3 c. milk
1 cup blueberries (or more)

streusel topping:
¼ c. sugar
2 T. and 2 t. flour
2 T. butter, cubed
¾ t. cinnamon

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400°. Grease or line 8 muffin wells with muffin liners.

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Pour into lined muffin cups; fill to the top.

To make streusel topping, combine listed ingredients and mix well with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over tops of muffins.

Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes.

    I made these blueberry muffins yesterday for my friend and her husband who brought a little baby girl into the world yesterday :) They loved these muffins

  • Heather

    My husband thinks these are the best blueberry muffins!! I make them about once a week for a quick breakfast. I use frozen blueberries I buy in bulk and they work great. I really like only messing up one bowl for muffins too :) Thanks for the “keeper” recipe!

  • Jill

    Ummmm yeah, these were pretty much amazing! So easy and good! The only question I had was how to get my topping more crumbly? The butter made the topping a little bit more moist. Did I do something wrong? Thanks Annie, so thankful my dear friend passed on your blog!

  • Annie

    Jill,
    The main thing is just to make sure the butter is very, very cold when you start and to keep it chilled as much as possible while you combine the topping ingredients. That is the best way to keep it crumbly.

    These just came out of the oven and they are wonderful! I substituted veg oil with olive oil…simple because that is what I had, and it added some nice flavor and texture, I LOVE these muffins

    I just made these (with some allergy modifications) and ate all the batter that was left after filling 12 muffin cups, then proceeded to eat 3 as soon as they were cool enough to handle.

  • Amy

    Around midnight last night, I had an insane amount of energy & had lots of blueberries in the fridge……so I thought to myself “hmmm Annie, must have a blueberry muffin recipe for me to try!” So I tried this…… and Oh man, IS IT EVER GOOD???! I’m enjoying one as I’m typing. It’s the perfect size since they’re all for myself cause my husband isn’t a muffin fan. YUMMMM-O!

  • Eeyore Ko

    Seriously….they are sooo good!! Absolutely love it! Thanks for sharing!

  • ekram

    Annie, how do i tweak this to make 24 mini muffins?

  • jennyyfuurr

    I made these the night before and they were still delicious and moist the next morning. I’ll have to double for next time though :) Thanks for posting!

  • Sandralane03

    These are in the oven baking right now…..my daughter couldn’t keep her spoon out of the bowl! Can’t wait to see how they turn out!

  • Jenniferarudy

    I had left over blueberries that I was almost going to throw away because I really don’t like them on their own. Decided to make these this morning and put those blueberries to use. Man, I am glad I did because these rocked! Its amazing how blueberries transform into something different when baked. Thank you for the great recipe!

  • Maddy

    Hi I am new at baking. I tried a similar recipe but the ‘streusel topping’ sinked to the bottom of the muffin and ended up in a very weird consistency (somewhat uncooked). It also made the rest of the batter overflow. Could you suggest a way to avoid this? Would be very thankful for your help :)

  • annieseats

    I’m not sure what to tell you. It’s probably just an issue of inexperience. Try, try again and hopefully it will work out better next time :)

  • Sara

    Oh my gosh these were absolutely amazing. So tasty and I’m gonna have to make a second batch before I run out! -Thanks
