- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup white sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ⅓ cup milk with 1 teaspoon vinegar
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 batch crumb topping
- ½ cup white sugar
- ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup frozen butter, coarsely grated
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400o F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
Make the crumb topping by mixing together sugar, flour, grated butter and cinnamon in a small bowl. Work the butter into the other ingredients with a fork until the mixture resembles a coarse, pebbly meal. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Make the muffin batter by combining the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a large bowl. Mix the milk and vinegar in a small bowl. Pour vegetable oil into a one cup (8-ounce) liquid measuring cup. Add the egg and enough milk/vinegar mixture to fill the cup to 8-ounces. Add the liquid mixture and vanilla to the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Gently fold in blueberries.
Fill cups in prepared muffin tin almost to the top with batter. Sprinkle a generous tablespoon of crumb topping on the top of each.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
Remove muffins to a cooling rack to cool.
Makes 12 regular-sized muffins.
This recipe also makes a great blueberry streusel coffee cake. Simply spread the batter in a greased 7”x11” baking dish, sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the batter, and bake at 350o for about 30-35 minutes.
The butter will be easier to grate if it is frozen, so put it in the freezer for a few hours (or overnight) before preparing muffins.
Originally the recipe called for buttermilk, but that is not something I keep on hand, so I substituted the milk/vinegar mixture.
