blueberry muffins

I love blueberry muffins. I love them so much that I tend to seek out new recipes for blueberry muffins. I'm amazed that there are a lot of various recipes out there specifically for blueberry muffins. I know Alton Brown's show 'Good Eats' devoted a whole show just to blueberry muffins! It was good, did anyone see it or try his version? I think I have a stash of about 7 blueberry muffins in my freezer for backup. Crazy right? Does anyone else do that? I must eat about 2 or 3 muffins a week. When I go to Whole Foods and see there is a fresh delivery of organic blueberries, I buy 4 pints.
Well, here is the latest blueberry muffin recipe I found. This one uses a crumble topping. Nothing like a good blueberry muffin with some coffee cake crumbies on top.

How many blueberry muffin recipes have you tried?
Which was your favorite one?

Blueberry Muffins with crumbly topping
print recipe

Muffin batter:
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup white sugar
½ ts salt
2 ts baking powder
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup whole milk
1 cup fresh blueberries

Crumb topping:
½ cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup butter, melted
1 ½ ts ground cinnamon

Cook Notes:
If you like a lot of crumb topping like I do, then double the ingredients in the crumb toppings.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Whisk together to fluff it all up.
In a separate bowl mix vegetable oil, the egg and milk. Combine well. Incorporate the wet with the dry. Do not over mix, only mix till just combined; it's ok to have lumps! Next fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
Make the crumb topping by mixing the sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon.
Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.

  2. I am so making those - I have never seen a blueberry muffin with crumbs on top! Note to self - Buy blueberries this weekend :) And I love Alton's show, and how each episode is devoted to one specific thing.

  10. I love muffins and those looks fantastic, but (and I hope you don't hate me now) I don't like blueberries. I don't know why, they've just never done it for me. I bet these muffins would be great with strawberries or raspberries though. ;)

  11. Dawn, these look amazing! I love that pop of color from the blueberries, and that crumb topping looks so tasty. I'm all for the extra topping or icing on desserts, I mean it's always the best part anyways!

  12. I am in search of the perfect blueberry muffin. On my blog I have made a couple of them, but then I got muffined out. I still have a couple on my lost to try. It's fun trying different recipes though.

  13. I pretty much never have muffins, but I love that you put a crumb topping on these. I have never made blueberry muffins, but there are blueberries all over the farmers market so may have to try that soon.

  15. i don't get too picky when it comes to blueberry muffins, but i have to say that i'm partial to a streusel topping. and the bigger and more plentiful the blueberries, the better. :)

  16. You did very nice work here. Wow, love the crumb! Beautiful.

  17. i am totally with you: i think a prerequisite for a perfect blueberry muffin must be some sort of crumble topping. you just can't go wrong with the crumble. i can't wait to try these muffins; they look divine!

  21. Blueberry muffins are my favorite and the crumb topping just make them sublime. That's the way my Grandma always made them.

    Sadly, I don't have her recipe, and actually don't bake muffins nearly as often as I should.

    I took a walk on the beach today to get a little vitamin D therapy. It helped alot.

  22. Hahahhaa, okay, once again I have to agree with you on the crumb topping. I think we both should come up with a recipe that involves more topping than muffin...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great crumb topping and the blueberries look so nice and plump!

    ReplyDelete
  24. YUM! I'm with you, Dawn....no wimpy crumb topping on muffins-pile it on!
    I went and picked a slew of blueberries last summer and have my stash in the freezer-I think some just found a home in these babies.
    Oh yeah-like you, I keep blueberry muffins in the freezer at the ready-have a batch of Jordan Marsh ones in there right now....hmmmm....I think I need one.....:)

  25. I love the addition of a crumb topping and my daughter would love these. One day we will get together and you can bring these, ok? We'll eat the whole batch and chat the day away.

  26. Oh Dawn. Now I am craving crumb topped muffins. They look absolutely fantastic.

  27. Blueberry are probably my faves...swet and tart at the same time and I like smiling with blue teeth!

  28. Great looking muffins! It's funny you mention that they freeze well. I really like blueberry muffins straight from the freezer. I slice them into coins and eat them like cookies but still frozen.

  29. Dawn,

    As usual, these look so yummy! Thank you so much for thanking me about volunteering at the cat shelter. I need to thank you too! I didn't know you did this as well? It feels so good to at least help out since I can't take them all home with me. I always feel so rewarded, in my heart, to have given in caring for all of 'em and help find good homes for each and every one. :)

    Hugs,

    Michelle

    The more crumb topping the better!

  32. Dawn these muffins are wonderful! I put a topping on all my muffins, I don't like naked tops! If you want the recipe for Carols Jordan Mash I'll see if I can wrangle it from her and send it to you.

  34. My hubby would so love me if I made these muffins. That topping is terrific. Blueberries are just starting to appear in the stores here. Man, I wish spring and summer would arrive already! :-)

  35. Whenever I make crumb toppings I always double the recipe. The crumbs are one of the best parts!! And the blueberries, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've never made any as fresh blueberries are hella expensive back home, but I have eaten a LOT of them! Heh heh :) Yours look amazing-- I love the bleeding blue color into the moist crumb!

  41. Dawn,

    Those have to be the very best blueberry muffins that I have ever seen!! How do you think they would ship if I packed them right? I would love to send some down to my son who is in college at the University of South Florida. Thanks so much for sharing.

  42. These look scrumptious and the crumb topping is over the top!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Crumb topping anywhere makes me salivate instantly. That crunchy sweet thin layer just does it for me. Now that I took that out of my system let's discuss muffins. I love blueberry ones (who doesn't anyway?) but blueberries are not so comun here and when I do find them they're soooooooo expensive that I'm usually happy just looking at yours, so keep'em coming!

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are really gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  45. God I love blueberry muffins, and yours look freakin delicious! I love how they look with the crumble on the top. I must bookmark this to try sometime, when blueberries aren't so damn expensive! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Okay, so I'm totally not being a dick, but I just had to tell you: that first picture is so out of proportion I was all like "Daaaammmnnn! What do plums have to do with blueberry muffins?" and then I realized it was a picture of blueberries, HA! I totally have the same dish.

    ALSO, the recipe looks fab. Will be trying it soon. =)
