Homemade Blueberry Muffins
When you’re born on a small farm, you learn quickly how to bake. I’ve been developing recipes now for nearly twenty years! Have you tried my Banana Bread recipe? If you loved that one, you’ll love my Blueberry Slab Pie, Cast Iron Blueberry Pie, Blueberry Pie, and Blueberry Puff Pastry. Be sure and try my Lemon Blueberry Cake.
How to make Streusel Topping:
Step 1: In a large bowl, use your hands or a spoon to combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Combine well. Set aside.
You can make crumb topping ahead of time in large batches, place into large freezer-style Ziploc bags and freeze for up to 1 month.
How to make Blueberry Muffins:
With only one bowl of either a stand mixer or using an electric hand mixer and simple ingredients, you’ll have delicious blueberry muffins quickly. Use either fresh or frozen blueberries for this blueberry muffin recipe.
Step 1: Using either a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, cream together the shortening, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Step 2: Add the eggs, one a a time, mixing after each addition. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl occasionally.
Step 3: Mix in the sour cream and milk. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl again.
Step 4: Fold in the blueberries with a rubber spatula. (These are the best too!! Dishwasher safe!)
Step 5: Scoop the batter evenly into paper liners, about three-fourths full.
Step 6: Spoon a heaping tablespoon of crumb (streusel) topping on each muffin.
Step 7: Bake for 25-30 minutes in a preheated 375 degree F oven. Or until the tops are golden and a toothpick when inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool in the baking pans completely before removing muffins from the pans.
How to make Jumbo Blueberry Muffins:
For these delicious jumbo blueberry muffins, I simply doubled the recipe and used an ice cream scoop to scoop the batter into larger cupcake liners. Sprinkle each muffin with buttery, cinnamon crumb topping and bake as directed below. You need to bake a few extra minutes for the jumbo muffins. As always, test with a toothpick when inserted comes out clean. Rotate your muffin tins half way through baking. Be very gentle when turning the muffin pans, careful not to bump them and make the muffins deflate.
Don’t these blueberry muffins look good!? Topped with a delicious streusel topping and so easy to make with simple ingredients. Let your muffins cool completely before removing from the baking pan. Also try my Sour Cream Coffee Cake, Raspberry Muffins, Raspberry Rhubarb Jam, and Mixed Berry Jam.
These blueberry muffins with crumb topping are freezer friendly! (If they last that long!) Just let them cool completely, wrap individually with plastic wrap and place in a large freezer-style Ziploc bag for up to 1 month.
