Blueberry Streusel Muffins

I think over half of you guys said in the comments in the last giveaway that you are pregnant too! Anyone else in that weird in-between stage of pregnancy where people are wondering has she eaten too many Krispy Kremes…or is she pregnant? Pregnancy mixed with vacation eating…ah…my clothes are all getting a little tighter for sure.

We were just in Vegas for the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids charity we are involved with and I had a silver dress that I bought a couple of months ago that had Vegas written all over it. It definitely was snugger than when I first bought it but I didn’t really feel like a stuffed sausage until after we had eaten a huge dinner and headed to Garth’s concert.
I had been fighting a chronic cough for a while…and as I was sitting in my seat watching Garth perform, I let out a big cough and felt a riiiiippppp.
Sure enough the zipper on my dress had ripped from the top of my dress all the way down to the top of my booty.
Mortified.
I knew there was no immediate escape possible so I kept my back stuck to my seat. I tried to enjoy the concert as much as I could but I knew after the concert the wives and husbands involved in the charity were supposed to go on stage and take a picture with Garth.
My husband tried to sneak the zipper slyly up but it was completely off track and required some major tweaking if it could even be fixed at all.
Finally, after the concert while we were waiting for Garth, I borrowed a shawl from a girl behind me and snuck out of the theater into a small curtained off section right outside where my husband tried to fix my dress. My husband at one point ripped the whole zipper out but eventually Macgyvered the zipper back into my dress. I’m sure by my giggling and all the shenanigans going on people thought we were doing the naughty.
The moral of the story is I need to stop pretending I’m the same size I used to be.
I saw these muffins over at Barbara Bakes and had to make them with all of the fresh blueberries available right now. They are the perfect texture and I added a generous amount of streusel topping because that’s how I roll. I like what Barbara said that homemade muffins really do not take that long as long as you have all of the ingredients out and ready to go. I made these for my family for Sunday breakfast with some help from my boys and my niece and they all went crazy for them.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Yield: 12 jumbo muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • Streusel Topping:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Line muffin pan with paper muffin liners.
  2. To prepare streusel topping mix with sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon with a fork. Sometimes I use my hands to get it fully incorporated so that it has the texture of wet sand. This makes a generous amount of streusel topping which probably could be halved but I like a lot on my muffins.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and milk. Add flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  5. Gently fold in blueberries.
  6. Divide batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle muffins with streusel topping.
  7. Bake at 350º for 20 to 25 min, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Makes 12 jumbo muffins.

  1. Oh christy I’m dying at that story! Of course John was able to macgyver it back together. Hope you guys had a great time, these muffins look great!

  2. Hahah! What a great story!! :) Thanks for sharing!! I’m sure all preggers appreciate your brave honesty. Heehee…

    The muffin looks great; will have to try it with my little guy! :)

  3. I am a blueberry muffin junkie right now. I find myself wanting them all the time. If you’re interested in a slightly more good for you version, I’ve got one on my blog, but wondering if 100% whole wheat flour really matters that much when you have sugar in a recipe. It sure is nice to have food that tastes good!

  4. Ha! Love the story! ;) These muffins look delish!

  5. What a funny story. I’m really impressed your husband could fix it. So glad you loved the muffins. I’ll have to try your streusel topping. Thanks for the link love!

  6. Oh GOSH. That is a story you can tell your child someday–“Wanna hear about one time in Vegas when my dress split open down the back because of you? …Well, and because of dinner. But mostly because of you!” :)

    Also, YAY, I have been craving breakfast muffings. These look delicious, and I have all the ingredients (save for the blueberries, but obviously those are better fresh) in my kitchen right now!

  7. I love that story! So funny :) and these muffins look incredible. I love blueberry muffins made with fresh blueberries!

  8. That is an amazing story. Wasn’t the Garth show incredible. I love it. I don’t even understand how your hubs macgyvered it back together. That may be as impressive as these muffins.

  10. I had to LOL at your story. I just recently split 2 pairs…I’m not pregnant just wear my pants for way to long.

    These looks superb!

  11. I have been there! I had a pair of jeans that were stretched too thin and just kept ripping!

    On the other hand, I want these muffins!

  12. Oh no!! What an embarrassing moment! Glad you can laugh about it now and had the courage to share it with us!

    Oh and I am a streusel topping kind of girl. On my muffins, coffee cake, pies… so these are totally my type of muffin!

  13. Oh no!!! Soooo embarrassingly funny-something to remember;) These muffins had to make it all better though!

  14. Although I am not pregnant, when I was, all I wanted to eat was blueberry muffins. This is going to save me a lot of money and trips to costco if I ever have another kiddo. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!

  15. I’m in my first pregnancy and feel like I am in that weird stage where I’m just looking fat. It’s very frustrating! Haven’t split any clothes yet though. These muffins look delicious. Perfect to eat before work.

  16. I love how you have a decedent muffin recipe after you burst out of your dress. I did that very thing at a wedding recently…oh yea…good times.

  17. LOL!!! That is hilarious and oh so sad!! And I LOVE GARTH!!!!!!!!!

  18. Congrats!! I just wanted to say that I had a chronic cough with my second child and once he was delivered, it was gone. Hoping yours is healed soon.

  30. The muffins are delicious!!! Thanks for the recipe.

  31. Hi!! Oh my god, so I have a list of recipes to try from your blog alone. I recently started this baking blog in an effort to learn how to cook for my husband-to-be. For my birthday, he bought me a KitchenAid mixer and for my first ever baking experience, I made your muffins!!!

    They didn’t come out as lovely as yours did in the picture, but OMG!!!! These got rave reviews from everyone who tried them!! Thank you! Great easy recipe for cooking-challenged like myself. :)

  32. I made these recently. We LOVE THEM. Thank you. I am going to throw out all other blueberry muffin recipes.
    I didn’t even put the streusel and they were great..

  33. These were delicious!! My 3 year old and I went blueberry picking this morning and I needed a recipe to use up some of the berries we picked. These were perfect! I didn’t have whole milk, so I used some heavy cream and some skim milk. I used a little more milk than it called for to thin the batter just a bit so I could mix in the berries. They turned out moist and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  34. Hello! I tried this recipe and loved it. I added a little cream cheese filling to the tops and it was great. I reposted this recipe on my blog (with credit to you of course), I hope that’s okay! Here’s the link: http://briannalanephotography.com/2013/07/17/found-great-blueberry-streusel-muffins/

  35. Can I make these in a mini muffin tin as well? Do you think that would work alright? I’m hosting a crafting/brunch party in a couple of weeks, and want to make a mini muffin bar set-up. :)

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      You can definitely make these mini muffin size but I’m not sure what the baking time would be. You would have to test it and just see when they start to barely turn golden.

  36. These are seriously amazing!! Just made them, wrote about it on my blog and linked to you. :)
