Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are a huge favorite in our house. They are easy to make and make great after school snack, breakfast or even dessert. With the holidays and the kids being home, this is an excellent baking project with kids.

Recipe adapted from here. What I like about this recipe is that the muffins have a beautiful crumb topping which makes them irresistible.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the crumb Topping:

  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter at room temperature

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line your muffin pan with muffin liners.
  • In a bowl sieve together flour and baking powder. Now add sugar. Mix well.
  • In another bowl add the egg(beaten), oil, milk, orange juice. Whisk it well.
  • Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well. Gently fold in the blueberries.

  • Now time to prepare the crumb topping-Mix together the topping ingredients until they have a crumb like consistency.

  • Fill the muffin cups with the muffin batter almost to the top.

  • Sprinkle them with the crumb topping. Ue liberal amounts.

  • Bake for about 20 -22 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. Voila you have your blueberry muffins.
  • This recipe makes 10 big muffins.
My kids could'nt even wait for the muffins to cool down and wanted to have it right away it. But they did wait and they absolutely loved these muffins.
