On June 13th, we tweeted this simple question: “We have blueberries. What do we make: Cupcakes or Muffins? Let us know… Baking tomorrow”
By the end of the day we made a Facebook Poll, and by the next morning, the choice was made. We were baking muffins. So, I just got the butter and blueberries to room temperature and started baking. They came out wonderful! This is a keeper! I know it will be a favorite of yours too. Usually muffins are heavy and dry, but this batter makes a light and moist muffin. Their tangy flavor topped with the brown sugar crumble makes them the perfect pair.

Blueberry Crumble Muffins
Recipe By Martha Stewart
Yield: Makes 24 muffins
Ingredients for the Crumble:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Ingredients for the Muffins:
3 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for tin
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large whole egg plus 2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 cups fresh blueberries
Granulated sugar, for topping
- Make the crumb topping, whisk together flour, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in melted butter and toss with a flexible spatula until large crumbs form. Set aside.
- Now, make the muffins. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line standard two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.
- With an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and granulated sugar until fluffy.
- Add eggs and vanilla; mix until well combined. Reduce speed to low; alternate adding reserved flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with flour. Gently fold in berries by hand.
- Divide batter evenly among prepared cups, then with your hands sprinkle crumb topping evenly over batter in each cup, sprinkle generously with granulated sugar.
- Bake for about 30 minutes until light golden on top, rotating tins halfway through (15 minutes in). This will allow the muffins to bake evenly. Don’t worry they won’t sink!
- Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes before turning out muffins. Serve warm or at room temperature.
