Blueberry Muffins, plain and simple.

[26/365] snow day muffins

Apparently the snowpocalypse is upon us. My area is under a severe snow warning or something of the sort. What do I do in such situations? Bake muffins, of course. These won't be winning any beauty contests, but they sure are tasty.

Blueberry Muffins

Adapted from All Recipes
Makes exactly 12 regular size muffins
  • 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
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup 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. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
  3. To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.

  15. So this is sort of a funny coincidence. Just last night I made a blog post highlighting blueberry recipes from around the globe (I'm in Norway), and I happened to include a link to your blueberry cobblar recipe from a while back. And then here you are today with a blueberry muffin recipe. What are the odds....
