Cinnamon Blueberry Muffins

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 10-12 muffins


For the muffin

  • 2 C All-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 C Zulka Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/2 C Melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 C Buttermilk
  • 1/2 C Sour cream
  • 1 1/4 C Blueberries

Streusal Topping

  • 2 tbsp Butter at room temperature
  • 1/4 C Flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon


For the the muffins

  1. Wash and rinse blueberries under water and set aside in a small bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, sift together flour. Measure ¼ C of the sifted flour and pour over blueberries. Gently stir to coat the blueberries in flour.
  4. Take your remaining flour and add baking powder, the salt, cinnamon and sugar. Then set this mixture aside.
  5. In a medium size bowl, beat the egg using a whisk until light and fluffy. Add melted butter and whisk together with the egg. Continue to add vanilla, buttermilk and sour cream and whisk everything together until smooth.
  6. Slowly pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to mix just until combined. Your batter will be thick, but careful not to over mix! Lastly, fold in the blueberries
  7. Grease your muffin pan with Crisco. I like to use Crisco instead of oil spray, but a spray works fine too.
  8. Fill your muffin tin all the way to the top with batter. Add 1 tablespoon of streusel to the top of each muffin. See below for streusel recipe.
  9. Bake for 5 minutes at 425° and then reduce heat to 350° and bake for another 16-20 minutes. Do not open the oven for at least 15 minutes, you will see how nicely the muffins rise. Baking times will vary by oven.
  10. Check your muffins for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the muffin. If your toothpick comes out clean, your muffin is done. Allow muffins to cool completely in the pan. You can also cool on a wire rack, but you want to allow them to cool enough to remove and transport them out of the pan.

Streusel Topping

  1. To make the streusel topping, combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and use a pastry cutter or a fork to blend the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly. There should be no large chunks of butter remaining.
  2. Cover each muffin with about a tablespoon of streusel. No need to skimp on this!
