Blueberry Muffins

Do you ever go to the grocery store looking purely disgusting and then you run into someone you know, and they, of course look fabulous? You are embarrassed and trying to end the conversation quickly. You want out of the store before the person notices that your hair really hasn’t been washed for 4 days instead of the 2 you sheepishly admitted to. I went to the store the other night to get blueberries and I am happy to report that I was the one looking fabulous! That’s right, we had just had our family pictures taken and I was dressed for the occasion, makeup on, hair done, and I didn’t see a soul I knew! Isn’t that the way it always works? I had been craving these muffins for a while now and knew that I needed to make them this weekend. They were our Sunday morning breakfast. The hubs had 3! They are moist, tasty, and the streusel on top makes them seem so fancy! Oh, because they are! We all need a go-to delicious blueberry muffin recipe, right? Here ya go…you’re welcome!

Blueberry Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and lemon zest. Make a well in the center. In a small mixing bowl whisk together egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Pour in the middle of the well in the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Gently fold in blueberries to batter. Either spray your muffin tin with vegetable spray or use cupcake liners and fill muffin tins 2/3 full.

For the streusel: Combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Then cut in butter with a pastry cutter or fork. Mixture should be crumbly. Sprinkle over the batter on top of each muffin tin. Bake for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into muffin, comes out clean. (Makes 12 muffins)
