Beautiful Blueberry Muffins

The Story:
         I love blueberry muffins, but they have always scared me.  In my head they always just seemed like they would be so intense and difficult to make. 

I was sorely misdirected.

        When I found this recipe and made them for the first time, I was in awe.  I made them in soufflé cups and they looked like they wanted to explode out of them.  The colors were just so beautiful I couldn’t help but to have a photo shoot in the backyard.

Beautiful Blueberry Muffins

                           Muffins:
                           2 cups flour

                           ½ cup sugar
                           3 tsp baking powder
                           ½ tsp salt
                           1 egg, well beaten
                           2/3 cup milk
                           1/3 cup oil
                           1 cup fresh or ¾ cup frozen blueberries
                           ½ tsp flour for blueberries
                                                    Streusel Topping:
                                                    ¼ cup sugar or brown sugar (I used white)
                                                    1 Tbsp butter softened
                                                    ½ tsp cinnamon

Directions: 
1.    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.   Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
3.   In a separate bowl, mix egg, milk and oil (using a fork works well).
4.   Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients and mix just until combined. 
5.   Mix blueberries with ½ tsp flour and then gently fold into the batter.
6.   Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.
7.   Prepare streusel: mix dry ingredients and then cut butter into mixture until it turns into crumbs. 
8.   Sprinkle over muffins.
9.   Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tops spring back.

    In the recipe you listed baking powder and then in the instructions listed baking soda. Is the ingredient powder or soda?

    So sorry Ashley, it is baking powder. I made the correction, thanks again for catching that mistake.

    They are about 4 ounces, which is the size of a basic cupcake liner. Sometimes I do the next step up if I want big muffins

    I get mine at a wholesale place. They are called souffle cups, you can purchase them online and I believe Wilton sells small packages of them.

    Hey, not new to your site, but new to leaving comments. I was wondering about the yield on this recipe. In your comments you said that this should make 20-25. No matter how far I stretch my batter I am only getting about 12 regular size muffins. Am I measuring wrong or is the yield wrong? Feel like I’m losing my marbles.

    These look so yummy and adorable. I love the cups.

    I love your blog! Read it everyday ! I just made your Blueberry Muffins for my daughter to take on a “Girls Weekend”! Just wanted to share that they were delicious! As I read through the ingredients I left off the list…the milk. I didn’t have any so I used Almond Breeze and they were still quite delicious! I will use milk the next time to see if I can tell the difference. I am ready to make your Red, White and Blue Muffins real soon. Thanks so much for sharing your sweet treats.

    I am thoroughly enjoying ” baking and eating my way ” through your excellent website, however I would make the following observation. The editing of your text areas is unbecoming of a journalism student in that it contains far too many typographical errors, most of which are simply distracting but quite some few of which hold the potential to ruin your recipes and blot your reputation for excellence. While your photography and website structure are very well done and appealing, the text areas – the ” meat ” of the matter as it were seem to be rushed and carelessly presented almost as an afterthought. Please exercise more care in this area as otherwise you have done a brilliant job here and obviously developed quite a fan base.

      My mother would agree with you. I do proofread my stories but I tend to miss a lot of things. Though may I disagree with you and say that the “meat” of my posts are the recipes and photos. With just my stories, I doubt anyone would visit my site. I just don’t lead a very exciting life :) Thank you for your support Joe and I’ll try to be better!

        Oh wow, really!? I highly doubt anyone is here for your spelling, and grammar correctiveness – haha is that even a word!!? See what i mean…opps farmer Joe doesnt want to bat an eye at all the mistakes I am making here, might be too much for him to handle. You are human-you make mistakes like most—–and I love your site! Seriously-dont let others pull you down. I am seriously SMH at why some people feel the need to be so honest and stick their nose where it doesn’t belong? Anyhow-your muffins are the best and the only I will make now. Keep up the great work.
