These Blueberry Streusel Muffins are a moist breakfast recipe with the perfect streusel topping.
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 KrispyKremes…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.
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 Blueberry Streusel 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 Blueberry Streusel 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.
Yield: 12jumbo muffins
Blueberry Streusel Muffins
2cupsall purpose flour
1 1/2teaspoonsbaking powder
1/2cup1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2cupsblueberriesfresh or frozen
Preheat oven to 350º. Line muffin pan with paper muffin liners.
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.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
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.
Gently fold in blueberries.
Divide batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle muffins with streusel topping.
Bake at 350º for 20 to 25 min, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Makes 12 jumbo muffins.
