Streusel

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 Tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter

Blueberries

  • 2 cups blueberries rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour

Batter

  • 1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • cup vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line muffin tins with paper liners or spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Streusel:

  • Combine sugar, cinnamon, and flour.
  • Cut in butter until streusel resembles small peas. Set aside.

Blueberries:

  • Toss blueberries with sugar and flour in medium bowl.

Batter:

  • Place flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Stir together with whisk to combine.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, egg, and milk.
  • Pour over dry ingredients and mix together until wet ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.
  • Gently fold in blueberries.

To Finish:

  • Spoon into prepared muffin tins.
  • Top each muffin with 1 Tablespoon streusel.
  • Bake for about 18 minutes, until tops are light gold.

Notes

  • You can use an electric mixer instead of a pastry blender or fork to make the streusel.
  • Don't over mix the batter! Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. It's ok if it has lumps in it.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries. You don't want to pop them!
  • Use a cookie scoop to portion batter into muffin tins.
  • Don't skip tossing the blueberries in the flour and sugar!
