Blueberry streusel muffins
are just what the doctor ordered when you’re craving something a little sweet and moreish. Chock full of deep blue, coloured blueberries, I kid myself that the blueberries are very good for me so it must be ok to devour 2 of these in one sitting (or standing). We love the way the blueberries burst and add a fabulous deep purple colour to the muffin.
Making muffins is pretty much foolproof and they are super quick to prepare and bake. They are moist, and the streusel adds a sweet and crunchy topping that lifts the eating game. Just about all sweet muffins should have a streusel topping in our opinion.
The simple rule for making moreish muffins
Once you combine the wet and dry ingredients stir through just enough to combine the mixture. Then stop mixing. Over mixing develops the gluten in the flour resulting in a tough, dry crumb. That’s it……. Easy!
Crumble topping, call it whatever you like, when a muffin is topped with this combination of butter, sugar, flour and cinnamon it’s sure to be elevated to be known as the yummiest muffin.
Blueberry streusel muffins aren’t a sickly sweet muffin, but when the blueberries combine with the gorgeous streusel the muffin really shines.
Swap out the blueberries
