Blueberries are Here and so are the Muffins

When I was out this morning, I thought I'd take a drive down the road to check out the blueberry situation, blueberries grow everywhere around here and the people that sell them out of their vehicles in parking lots are already set up.  I didn't go out with the intention to be picking berries, I had sandals on and no basket - once I see those blueberries, I can't help myself, I have to pick some!!!  I saw plenty and I had to pick!!   All I had was the car garbage can so that is what I used - I just wanted to pick enough today for a batch of muffins, turns out I have enough for two batches.  I told you I can't stop - and if it hadn't started to rain, I would have been out there longer.

I really thought I had blogged about this recipe before for these muffins but I can't seem to find it -  it is just the best!!  The original recipe came from All Recipes but I'll write it down for you right here so you don't have to waste time doing any more clicking, you can get right down to baking these delicious morsels!   These are fresh out of the oven!!

To Die for Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 c. flour

3/4 c. white sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

1/3 c. vegetable oil\

1 egg

1/3 c. milk

1 c. fresh blueberries


1/2 c. white sugar

1/3 c. flour

1/4 c. butter, cubed

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 - grease tins or use muffin liners.

Combine 1 1/2 c. flour, 3/4 c. 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 the flour mixture, fold in blueberries.  Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

Crumb Topping - Mix together 1/2 c. sugar, 1/3 c. flour, 1/4 c. butter and 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon.  Mix with fork and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

I ended up with 9 muffins and lots of crumb topping left over, so I'm keeping the leftover topping and will make another batch.

Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.  SO GOOD!! 


  1. These may be my new go to blueberry muffins. They started using a new kind at Starbucks and I don't like them as well as the old ones! :(

  2. I think that's the same recipe I use. Really good!

  3. I love blueberries and I just had some on a bowl of cereal for a snack. Muffins are wonderful....and scones! YUMMY! Enjoy your afternoon! When you come to visit me...bring one of those muffins with you! heehee! Hugs, Diane

  4. Thanks for the recipe. I will pass it on to other family members who love blueberries. My first experience with wild blueberries was in 1971 in Jonquiere, Quebec. Out of my college dorm window I watched little Canadian boys stuff their mouths with the blue jewels. There are blueberry farms near where we live in Louisiana, so I guess I should plant a few bushes. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  5. These look great! My Mom just asked me to make her some blueberry muffins!

  6. Timely tip! We just picked 3 pounds worth from our own bushes. Will definitely check out this recipe. :-)

  7. I could have sworn you posted these before too! I am headed out to get some fresh blueberries tomorrow so I will be pinning this recipe!

    Funny how blueberries grow along the roadside where you are at. We have blackberries. TONS of blackberries everywhere.


  8. Thanks Jill! They look so yummy and I'm going blueberry picking on Friday. :)
