How to Make Blueberry Streusel Muffins
Blueberry Streusel Muffins are super easy to make. First, make the batter as you would a regular muffin recipe. Leave out about 1/2 a cup of blueberries so you can place them on top of the muffins in the muffin tin.
Next, prepare the streusel mixture and press it into the muffins.
Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.
Tips to Make Blueberry Streusel Muffins
- Use a good quality nonstick muffin tin. This USA Pan from Amazon is a great muffin tin you’ll use again and again.
- Always spray the tops of the muffin tins, even if you are using muffin liners. That way if the muffin spills over, it won’t get stuck on your pan.
- Use a scoop to measure out the muffins. This OXO Medium Scoop is a good option at a great price.
- Press down the top of the muffin before baking so that the streusel stays on better.
- Let these muffins cool in the tins before removing them to the cooling rack.
- Can you make ahead blueberry muffins? Absolutely! Just allow them to cool completely and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, or the freezer for up to 2 months.
