Ingredients

6 Tablespoons butter (softened)

3/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs (room temperature)

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup whole milk*

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Crumble Topping

1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup sugar

1 stick salted butter, melted**

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup reserved

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until they are light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.

Add the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar mixture and beat well. Stir in milk and vanilla extract, mixing just until smooth..

Wash and dry fresh blueberries on paper towels. In a bowl toss blueberries with about 1 Tablespoon of flour (keeps the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffin). Gently fold 1 1/2 cups of blueberries into batter. Reserve 1/2 cup for adding to the top later.

Fill the muffin cups 3/4 to almost full. Place a few of the remaining berries on top of each muffin, pressing them gently down into the batter.

In a bowl combine all of the ingredients for the crumble topping and mix together with a fork. Divide between the muffin cups spooning the crumble mixture on top of each muffin.

Bake muffins for 25-30 minutes, until they are light, golden brown. (Mine were done after 25 minutes).

Cool muffins in the pan on a cooling rack just until they are cool enough to handle and remove.

Store overnight in airtight container.

* I don’t keep whole milk in the house, so I used 1/4 cup of half and half and 1/4 cup skim milk.

** I only have unsalted butter - so I added a pinch of salt to my melted butter before adding the mixture.
