I had a bunch of blueberries left over from a fruit salad I made for a party, so I decided to make some blueberry muffins. The recipe was really good, but the crumb topping didn’t come out just right. I think there was too much butter in it, so it didn’t really crumble the way it should have, but with a little modification I think I will definitely make it again. I found this recipe over at Eating Richly.

Blueberry Muffins with Crumb Topping


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
about 1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries


2 TBS white sugar
2 TBS brown sugar
3 TBS cup all-purpose flour
3 TBS butter, cubed and softened
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grease a muffin tin or line with muffin cups.

Mix the muffin dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder) in a large bowl.  In a glass measuring cup, pour in the 1/3 cup oil.  Add an egg and then pour in enough milk to make a full cup of liquid ingredients.

Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.  Carefully fold blueberries into mix and spoon into muffin cups.

Mix topping ingredients together with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the muffin batter.

Bake about 25 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted in one comes out clean.
