Tasty Tuesday: Blueberry Muffins


A couple of people mentioned that they'd like the recipe for the blueberry muffins at our last meeting, so I thought it would be great candidate for Tasty Tuesday!



**makes 6-8 large muffins or 12-15 medium muffins. 

The Ingredients:

  • 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
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (frozen berries don't work as well!)

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

The Directions:


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin cups well or line with muffin liners.

Combine first 4 ingredients. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add egg & enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture until just moistened (use as few strokes as possible to mix). Fold in blueberries.

To make topping, put all topping ingredients in a bowl & mix with a fork until crumbly.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle lightly & evenly with crumb topping mixture (putting the topping only in the middle will cause your muffins to cave in... I know this because my muffins all had sink-holes in the middle!)

Bake for 18-20 mins, or until done.
