I’ve spent the past couple of years searching for the perfect blueberry muffin recipe. It couldn’t be too sweet, too dense, too cake-like, not sweet enough, and it had to have a quality that has you coming back for more.

This recipe is immensely popular, so it’s possible you’ve already seen it or tried it. But if you haven’t, and you love blueberry muffins as much as I do, you’ll want to get thee into a kitchen, pronto! Do yourself a favor and don’t even think about skipping the crumb topping – it’s really what makes these muffins special. I’ve made the topping using all granulated sugar, all brown sugar, and a mix of the two. I prefer all granulated, but really, all varieties are quite delicious.

1 1/2 c unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 c granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1 large egg
1/3 c buttermilk
1 c blueberries (fresh or frozen)

1/2 c brown sugar

1/4 c butter, cubed
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 400 F and line muffin pan with papers.

2. Combine first five ingredients in medium-sized bowl, stir to mix. In a glass measuring cup, pour in 1/3 c canola oil and large egg. Add enough buttermilk to fill to the 1 c mark. Mix liquid contents with dry ingredients, stir until just mixed. Add blueberries, stir to combine (be careful not to overmix). Fill muffin cups to the top.

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

    […] On the other hand, I do have a lot of notes about what I would do differently with this recipe next time: I would use cake flour, I would use McIntosh apples, and I would use less flour in the crumb layer, along with just brown sugar (2/3 cup). Also, I wouldn’t melt the butter in the crumb layer, I would dice the cold butter and mix it into the crumb with my fingers (like I do with my crumble apple pie and my blueberry muffins). […]
