To Die For Blueberry Muffins

The blueberries were ripe and ready for picking at Once in a Blue Moon Blueberry Farm in El Dorado Hills, so off we went with these two loves to gather our loot for making blueberry muffins. IMG_9763

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

These delicious muffins have a sugary-cinnamon crumb topping, which I’m a total sucker for!

Ingredients:

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

Crumb Topping Ingredients:

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup butter, cubed

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt, and baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a one cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
  3. To make crumb topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in preheated oven, or until done.
