To make this recipe, you’ll need:
- 2 mixing bowls
- 1 rubber spatula
- measuring cup
- muffin papers (optional)
- baking tray
For the muffin mixture:
- 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup of white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup of milk
- 1 cup of fresh blueberries
For the crumb toppings:
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed into smaller pieces
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
If your tools and ingredients are ready, let’s get started!
Step 1: Pre-heat and Prepare
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius). Grease your muffin pan or if you have muffin papers, line it on the pan. This recipe is good for 8 servings so if your pan has more than 8 pockets/spaces, fill it in with 1 tablespoon of water before baking.
Tip: The empty spaces of the pan tend to burn the muffins faster.
Step 2: Dry Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3/4 cups of white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of baking powder.
Step 3: Wet Ingredients
In a measuring cup, pour 1/3 cup of vegetable oil; add one egg and 1/3 cup of milk. Stir it well and combine it with your flour mixture. Be careful not to overmix the batter at this point.
Step 4: Add the Blueberries
Carefully fold 1 cup of fresh blueberries into the batter. Use a flexible rubber spatula to make this task easier. Once the blueberries are evenly distributed throughout the batter, set it aside.
Step 5: Sweet Cinnamon Crumb Toppings
In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of butter (sliced into small cubes), 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Mix the ingredients together using a fork until crumbly.
Step 6: Baking Time!
Spoon the batter into the muffin pan using a scooper. Sprinkle the crumb toppings on top of each muffin. Bake them in your pre-heated oven for 20- 25 minutes.
Tip: You’ll know that the muffin is done when you put a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean when pulled.
Yummy Blueberry Muffins
Once the muffins are slightly cooled, they’re ready to serve! You can also top butter on your muffins for a balance of sweet and salty flavors.
