blueberry streusel muffin surrounded by fresh bluberries

I have a secret dream of opening my own bakery. The kind with the photo worthy pastry lined front, muted pastel colors, and fun little seating areas. I don’t know if this dream will come true, but I do know that if it does, it will be filled with these muffins!

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a muffin pan with baking cups.

  2. In a large bowl or using a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).

  3. Add egg and mix until combined.

  4. In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

  5. Add the flour mixture and milk alternately to the butter mixture until it is combined (this is an important step)!

  6. Add the vanilla and mix well.

  7. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter and set aside.

  8. Prepare the cinnamon struesel by whisking the flour, sugar, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Melt the butter and stir into the dry mixture. Use your hands to bring it together into more of a “streusel” like consistency and set aside.

  9. Spoon the batter into the lined muffin pan and sprinkle with streusel until it is gone or you’ve reached your desired amount.

  10. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick goes in and comes out clean.
