blueberry muffins

i received no less than 3 marriage proposals after i brought these blueberry muffins into work.  they are that good

line your muffin tins with cute liners

start by mixing flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt

add 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 1 egg, and enough milk to bring it to the 1cup line

pour it into the dry ingredients and mix until combined
add 1cup fresh blueberries


gently fold them into the batter and set aside

for the topping combine flour, brown sugar, softened butter, and cinnamon

mix with a fork - it will be nice and crumbly

spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins

sprinkle with the topping and stick them in the oven

they'll come out looking like this

let them cool

or just dive right in while they're still warm.
have a glass off cold milk nearby and thank me later

Muffin Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Topping Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter softened, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400.  Line tins with muffin cups.

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. 
Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. 
Mix this with flour mixture until combined (do not overmix). 
Fold in blueberries. 
Fill muffin cups 2/3 to 3/4 to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

 Crumb Topping: Mix all ingredients together with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes in preheated oven, or until toothpick inserted to center of muffin comes out clean.  Makes 12 muffins.

these are definitely something you'll want to keep in your arsenal.  the best feedback i've received so far (from a gentleman of course):   

"shelly, i really like your muffins"
