Blueberry Streusel Muffins

I don’t make muffins often because lets be real when I make them I just want to eat them all day.  This recipe had been tempting me for awhile now so I figured it was time to give it a go.  My girl Ina never disappoints with her recipes, these muffins were ridiculously good.  I made a dozen muffins and 24 hours later they were all gone, that is how good they were.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  The topping is the best part so don’t scrimp on it!

  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • 2¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk, shaken
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 Meyer lemon
  • 1 large egg
  • 6 oz. fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoon cold unsalted butter

~ Preparation ~

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners.

  2. Zest Meyer lemon; set zest aside and save lemon for another use.

  3. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a
    large bowl and blend with your hands. In a separate bowl, whisk together
    the buttermilk, butter, lemon zest, and eggs. Stir the buttermilk
    mixture into the flour mixture with a fork, mixing just until blended.
    Fold the blueberries into the batter. Don’t over-mix! With a standard
    (2¼-inch) ice-cream scoop or large spoon. Scoop the batter into the
    prepared cups, filling them almost full.

  4. For the topping, place all the
    ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade
    and pulse until the butter is in very small pieces. Pour into a bowl and
    rub with your fingers until crumbly. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the
    streusel on top of each muffin. Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes,
    until golden brown.

    I just posted an Ina recipe yesterday – love her! These have been on my 'want to make' list for a while. I can see myself having zero control when they're in the house.
