My favorite, Never-Fail, Blueberry Streusel Muffins recipe! Incredibly Moist and Fluffy! My son loves these muffins in the morning before school with extra powdered sugar on top. He calls them: “Mom’s Love!” I like that!
I bake these Fruit Muffins all the time since I always have fresh fruit and sometimes we don’t eat all of it in time, so this is the best way to “reuse” that soft fruit you have leftover.
Please watch the Video recipe below on how to bake these muffins
I didn’t have the buttermilk on hand so I’ve substituted by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. Super Easy trick!
Once you bake these Blueberry Streusel Muffins and see how Easy and Delicious this recipe is, I’m sure it will become your Family’s Favorite as well!!
MAKING THE BEST BLUEBERRY STREUSEL MUFFINS
The key to making fluffy muffins is not to over mix the batter. Once the liquid ingredients are added to the dry, mix the batter until the flour is moistened. Too much mixing can cause the muffins to be dry and flat.
Make sure to use FRESH Baking powder as it loses most of its effectiveness after about six months. This helps your muffins to rise.
I remember baking these Delicious muffins with my son for a meeting with his AGP teacher. Wanted to bring something sweet to such a sweet woman! I have great respect for the teachers and was Very Fortunate to be One, several years ago. Was teaching Arts and Craft class to homeschooled kids for two years. Had 17 kids in my class and Absolutely Loved it!!! I was trying to Inspire them to see ART in Everything! Every week, I would do extensive research (YouTube mainly) and bring the different medium to the class: pipe cleaners, foam, papercraft, balloon animals, food art and my very favorite: Playdough jewelry and Art!
Oh, the Memories! Love being in school among kids, brings the Kid in me! I hope to do the same with my Cooking now: to inspire people that don’t feel as comfortable in the kitchen, to look at Cooking as a Fun and Enjoyable experience, to experiment new things and Not to be afraid to fail.
Use any fruit you have on hand for this recipe. Doesn’t have to be just blueberries.
I prefer Reynolds StayBrite baking cups, no need to grease them, they just come right out after baking.
Perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning!
