Streusel Muffins

I love muffins. There is a place near where one of my sister lives in Washington state that has the best muffins ever. Every morning they have a selection of huge muffins ranging in flavor, there’s one for every taste. When I go to visit her it is on the top of my list of things to do. It is no exaggeration to say that I have dreams about these muffins. My two favorites that they have are blackberry and the maple strudel. Oh em gee. So good. (*Looks up airfare*)

Hold on, I drooled a little…

But sadly I do not live in Washington and cannot have one of those delicious muffins every day and so must settle for my own version. Although they are nowhere near as delicious or large, they will do in a pinch. These are also quite delicious if you have new neighbors, as I do now.

I love to take new neighbors muffins when they first move in. I figure it’s a nice way to introduce myself and also pre-apologize for an overly friendly dog who thinks everyone wants to be immediate best friends.

This time I used blueberries as my fruit because it is what I had. I love to use fresh or frozen rhubarb however when I have it. You could use any fruit you want, or a combination. This recipe is so versatile and so delicious!  I sometimes have a hard time giving them away.

 

Streusel Muffins 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

1 cup fresh or frozen fruit of your choice

Topping:

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup butter, cubed

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Line muffin cups with muffin wrappers. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a large bowl combine egg, oil and milk. Gradually add dry ingredients until just combined. Sprinkle tablespoon of flour over fruit and mix to coat. Carefully fold fruit into batter. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.

Make the streusel topping by mixing together all ingredients with fork until combined and crumbly. Divide evenly among muffins before baking.

Bake muffins for 25-30 minutes until golden and done. Try not to eat them all in one sitting.

Enjoy!

The batter will seem pretty thick. It’s supposed to be this way
