Blueberry Muffins topped with a Buttery Streusel.
Since blueberries are in season right now I went blueberry picking at a local blueberry farm. Confession: It was my first time picking fresh blueberries and it was a lot of fun! I’ve always been a big fan of blueberry muffins so I knew that was going to be the first thing I’d make with them. This recipe is from Barbara Bakes. It’s loaded with blueberries so your sure to get tons of blueberry flavor in every bite. I love this recipe because for me a blueberry muffin is just not complete without a sweet buttery streusel topping and lots of it. So if your like me and really love streusel then you might want to double the streusel part of the recipe. The muffin part of this recipe is soft, sweet, & moist like a coffee cake.
This recipe says it makes 12 muffins but for me it made 16. I filled the muffin cups 3/4 of the way full (mine where a little on the short side so I probably could have filled them higher). The batter for this recipe is fairly thick just so you know what to expect. If you only want 6-8 muffins you can easily cut the recipe in half.
