Start the Day with Blueberry Muffins with Crumb Topping
I've never been one to hit the drive thru in the mornings to grab breakfast or a $5 cuppa joe. I realize, I'm somewhat in the minority. That said, I do occasionally love meeting friends and other Mom's for some girl chatter at one of our local coffee houses. Regardless of the location, you can always count on them offering freshly baked blueberry muffins in the pastry case to go with your steamy beverage of choice.
Helpful Tips for Making Blueberry Muffins
Blueberry muffins aren't difficult to make and in fact, if you're not up to pulling out your mixer, the batter can be whipped up using a little elbow grease. Nonetheless, making them yourself, is not only fun but, you'll save money, too. I just want to mention a few things:
- These muffins are perfectly delicious just as they are. Please note, you can add 1-2 tablespoons lemon or lime zest, grapefruit or orange zest to give them a citrus edge.
- The purpose of dusting the blueberries, or any fresh berry with flour is, to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the batter while baking.
- Frozen berries can be used. When doing so, thaw and drain before adding to the batter.
- After cooling the muffins, they can be kept in an airtight container chilled or at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can also freeze them for up to 2 months for a quick grab-n-go breakfast.
