Ingredients

Streusel Topping

  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 5 tablespoons butter

Muffins

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup sugar plus 1 teaspoon
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

Blueberries

  • Combine 1 cup of the blueberries, 1 teaspoon sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring and mashing the berries until berries are broken down and thickened and reduced to about half. This will take about 6 minutes
  • Once the berries are broken down and thickened remove from heat. Cool until around room temperature. Transfer the berries to a bowl to quicken the process of cooling down.

Streusel Topping

  • Combine the white sugar, brown sugar, flour, and butter using a pastry cutter or a fork mix until the mixture is the size of small crumbs. Set aside while making the muffins.

Muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare the muffin tine with a nonstick cooking spray or paper liners
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together the remaining sugar and eggs together in a medium bowl until thick and well combined.
  • Slowly mix in the butter until combined. Combine the milk and the vanilla and whisk in. Using a spatula fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Add blueberries and fold in until combined. The batter will be lumpy, make sure not to over mix.
  • Using a cookie scoop or large spoon, divide the batter equally among the prepared muffin tins.  Make sure not to overfill, making sure that the tins are 2/3 full. 
  • Spoon about a teaspoon of the cookie blueberries into the center of each muffin batter. Using a skewer or a small knife, gently swirl the berry filling into the batter using a figure-eight motion. Sprinkle the streusel evenly over each muffin.
  • Bake until muffins are golden brown and just firm about 18 to 20 minutes. Cool the muffins in the muffin tins for 5 minutes before removing. Remove and cool completely on a cooling rack. 

Notes

UseĀ fresh blueberries, they work the best.
