I must be the only person on the planet that did not know this. Cake mixes make wonderful last minute muffins. You all know this already right? I feel like an idiot. Rarely do I buy cake mixes, but when I made the cake pops I got an extra box just in case (don't all the foodies always get an extra this or that to store/hoard?). So when the cake mix box meets the 3 pounds of blueberries I have sitting err rotting away in my fridge I said why not? Let's give this a go. And I added on some crumb topping too.
These were definitely quick and easy to make, but a little too sweet for me. Cake mix was very sweet when mixed with the blueberries and crumb topping. But the overhang edges, or the muffin tops were good. Crispy edges are the best part! I always overfill my muffins tins just for the crispy edges--I'm badass like that.
But if you ever need a last minute muffin and have very little time, these will come in handy. But you already knew that....
cake mix blueberry muffins w/ crumb topping
1 box of yellow cake mix
1 pint of blueberries
1 cups flour
1 cups packed light brown sugar
½ teaspoons coarse salt
½ TB ground cinnamon
1 stick unsalted butter, melted & cooled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease up jumbo muffin trays (mine got 12 jumbo).
In a bowl mix all the ingredients for the crumb topping, set aside.
Mix up the cake batter according to box directions. Fold in the blueberries carefully.
Fill up the muffin cups about ¾ full, sprinkle on the crumb topping.
Bake for about 30-40 minutes? Can’t remember but check them at the 30 minute mark.
I got 12 oversized muffins. I would imagine about 24 regular size?
