To die for blueberry muffins

It's a beautiful day outside, and a perfect day for baking some delicious muffins. This is one of my favorite muffin recipes, with it it's impossible to fail and you can modify it by putting for example raspberries, strawberries or rhubarb instead of blueberries, or you can put different kinds of berries, like I did this time. I used blueberries and raspberries to make "Queen" muffins. They succeeded wonderfully, almost too delicious...I love the hint of cinnamon in this recipe, it gives an exciting taste to the muffins. For bigger muffins I recommend to double the recipe, and the topping crumb also. And of course you should use BIG muffin cups for these.

The recipe makes about 7 to 9 muffins when doubled, it depends on the cups. I recommend not to fill the cups very full, because the dough rises and it may burst out of the cups.

To die for blueberry muffins

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil (I use olive oil)
1 egg
1/3 cup alpro soya milk
1 cup fresh blueberries (or more if you want)

the topping:
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 200 °C.
2. Combine all dry ingredients, and then mix the wet ingredients and combine with the flour mixture. Fold in blueberries.
3. Fill the muffin cups almost right to the top,
and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

To make the crumb topping mixture:
1. mix together sugar, flour, melted butter & cinnamon with fork and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until ready.

  3. I LOVE blueberry muffins and these look amazing with their crumbly tops! YUM!

  4. I am extremely impressed by the beauty and maturity of your creations! Keep cooking and I will keep following. Yours in admiration, Micki

  5. Thanks a lot, I'm very flattered to hear that! :) And of course I'll keep cooking!

  6. I have vanilla soy milk, skim milk, buttermilk, and sour cream in the fridge can I use any of these for the muffins?

  7. Sure, I suggest you use vanilla soy milk, it will give a nice hint of vanilla to the muffins :) You could also use skim or butter milk, but soy milk probably fits the recipe better. Sour cream would give a different consistency to the dough, and you owuld probably have to add some milk also, not to make it too thick. It could be tasty as well!

  8. It'a really a matter of your own opinion when it comes to the taste. I suggest using your imagination and trying different versions. You can make up something amazing.
