To Die For Blueberry Muffins

July 10th, 2010

This recipe may be floating around the blogishere but it is the first time I have become aware of it. I received a gallon of freshly picked North Carolina blueberries from a dear friend recently and was looking for recipes to utilize my bounty. This recipe was on and it got rave reviews. What makes it so special is the cinnamon streusel topping. The muffins are moist and delicious. I made a double batch because our family will be visiting for the next week. I plan on making blueberry crumble, blueberry pancakes and blueberry salad. Is there such a thing as blueberry salsa? Any suggestions would be appreciated. If you don’t see me here for a while, just know that I am having fun with the kids.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries

1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and beat to incorporate. Add enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full or right to the top., and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

To Make Crumb Topping; Mix together the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with a fork or your fingers until butter is incorporated and sprinkle over muffins before baking. I had enough topping for 24 muffins.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.

    They sure look delicious and I especially like the idea of the crumb topping. I’ll have to get the family baker thinking about muffins.

    The I’ve Got a Cook in Kalamazoo cookbook I gave you has a great recipe for something called “Blueberry Thing” which is a great favorite. There’s a delicious blueberry pie with a touch of cinnamon in there, too. I have a great blueberry coffee cake recipe given to me by a friend. Let me know if you want it. Have a terrific time with the kids. We’ll hear from you when you surface from all the fun, right?

  4. A GALLON? Wow, really! I just made blueberry cobbler. I can’t get enough of those little blue devils. I’m going to try this next weekend, though I have not been too successful with muffins for some reason. Great pics – Gary

    Just beautiful—I got a gallon of blueberries on our trip to AL coast this weekend; gave 1/3 to DIL for their beach-house breakfast, just handed 1/3 up the stairs to Caro to go with her morning yogurt, and will make these on Wed. a.m. when our littlest one joins us for the day.

    Great timing!!

    I’m smiling at your “to die for” expression, Penny. I say it all the time. (I think it ages us, if you want to know the truth!)
    Your blueberry muffins look simple to make and unusual because of the steudel topping.

    How about Blueberry Lemon Tart?

    and dont forget Blueberry pancakes! Of course, the peaches are coming so save some for peach blueberry pie, my alltime favorite.

  11. Oh. Just oh. I want some. Now.

    I’m trying your blueberry muffins in the morning…except with my raspberries. I wish I had some beautiful blueberries to go with them. Didn’t HGTV build a Dream House on Lake Lure a few years ago. It rings a bell. Have a great time with your family.

  13. I made these muffins last night and brought them in to work today. They were gone in less than 30 minutes!! What a winner! Thank you!
