Tuesday Cook Off ~ The Best Blueberry Muffins

In our house blueberry muffins are a big request from my husband and my youngest son.   My husband likes them so much he will even make a box of Jiffy blueberry muffins on his own.  GROSS!!  Anyway, I came across this recipe that has a crumb topping.   I just love crumb toppings!  Well, I just had to give it a try.   Also, these blueberry muffins are made with Greek yogurt that really makes these muffins moist.  I promise if you like blueberry muffins, you will LOVE these!  Enjoy baking 🙂

Here is the recipe:

 Yield: 2 1/2 dozen standard muffins

Ingredients

For the Batter:
    • 4 eggs
    • 2 1/2 C sugar
    • 1 C canola oil
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 2 C plain traditional Greek yogurt (I’ve never tried using fat-free and don’t know how it works)
    • 4 C AP flour
    • 1 tsp kosher salt
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 3 C fresh or frozen blueberries tossed with 1 tbsp of flour just before adding to the batter
For the Crumb Topping:
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 C AP flour
  • 1/2 C butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Make crumb topping by combining all ingredients in a bowl and pinching with your fingers until the butter is fully incorporated and it looks like coarse sand. Set aside.
  3. Combine the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla; mixing until smooth.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt and baking soda.
  5. Alternately add 1/3 flour and 1/3 yogurt to the sugar mixture and repeat, stirring just slightly between each addition. The key to moist muffins is to keep the batter from becoming over mixed. Only mix until no dry spots remain- there will be lumps and that’s okay.
  6. Gently fold in the blueberries, mixing only until they are evenly distributed.
  7. Scoop batter into muffin tin until 2/3 full. Spoon 1 1/2-2 tbsp of crumb mixture on top of each muffin (it will look like a lot of crumbs).
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean with only moist crumbs.
