Better Than Bakery Blueberry Streusel Muffins

These streusel topped muffins are packed with blueberries - fresh blueberries AND a blueberry sauce swirl!

My husband, Nick, often says that the only muffins he'll eat are topped with streusel otherwise they are just a sad, unfrosted cupcake. I'm not that biased, but I do have to admit that I love a streusel-topped muffin so dang much. While I don't find these better than my favorite bakery muffin (that's basically a cupcake), I do enjoy these gorgeous muffins topped with streusel.

What you need:
For the muffins:
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup + 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
For the streusel:
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  1. For the muffins: Combine 1 cup blueberries, 1 tsp. sugar, and water to a simmer in a small saucepan. Cook until reduced by half, mashing with a fork as it cooks. Cool.
  2. In a mixer, combine eggs and sugar. Then slowly add butter.
  3. Add buttermilk and vanilla and mix until combined.
  4. Fold in flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined.
  5. In a paper cup lined muffin pan, fill batter to the top.
  6. Add a small spoonful of cooked blueberries into the center and swirl with a knife gently.
  7. For the streusel: Mix together all ingredients. Sprinkle over muffin batter.
  8. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.

I think one of the best parts of the muffin is the top and I definitely want to try these Blueberry Muffin Top Cookies from My Baking Addiction. They look magnificent! A fun breakfast recipe has not only aspects of blueberry muffins but blueberry pancakes: Blueberry Pancake Muffins.
