Blueberry muffins

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Today is my husbands birthday (happy birthday babe!) One of his favorite treats is muffins. He told me for his birthday breakfast he wanted muffins from a box. That's right, a box! I looked at him like he was crazy, said "no way" and set out to find a delicious blueberry muffin recipe. I looked at a lot of recipes and picked what I thought would be the best one. Although I wish these muffins were a little sweeter, they are definitely delicious and worth making! The yummy streusel on top really makes this muffin.

1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. table salt
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. lemon peel
1 large egg
1 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. oil
1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
Streusel Topping
1/4 c. sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift together in a large bowl flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and citrus peel. Make a well in the center of the mixture. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and oil. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Gently fold the blueberry mixture into the batter. Spoon the batter into lined muffin tins, filling 2/3 full.

To make the streusel topping, combine the 1/4 c. sugar, 2 1/2 Tbsp. flour, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the batter and bake for 18 minutes or until the tops are golden  Makes 12 muffins.
