Summer Blueberries

Blueberries, or rather all berries really, bring back summer memories at Grandma's house! Warm summer evenings are the perfect setting for serving berry-desserts, and who doesn't love sweet berry-muffins! Blueberry muffins are always a hit in my home, and with a simple recipe, these muffins will surely impress your family!




Blue Berry Muffins
will make 11 to 12 muffins

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries

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

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil, the egg and milk into a separate bowl and stir to incorporate ingredients. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture. (I always pat down the crumb topping slightly, and then a little more.)

3. To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done. Remove muffins to a wire rack, and let cool just a bit before serving.

Enjoy!
