Blueberry muffins with streusel


Some friends just had a little girl, and I wanted to put together a little basket of goodies to bring to the family. I knew I was going to bring some of my mom's banana bread, but I also wanted to bring some blueberry muffins too. I stumbled upon the recipe below through Annie Eats (who found it on allrecipes). This is very tasty and very easy to make. I highly recommend giving it a try.

Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
~1/3 cup. milk
1 cup blueberries (or more)

streusel topping:
1/4 cup. sugar
8 tsp flour
2 tbsp butter
3/4 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 400°. Grease or line 8 muffin wells with muffin liners.

Combine flour, 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 flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Pour into lined muffin cups; fill to the top.

To make streusel topping, combine listed ingredients and mix well with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over tops of muffins.

Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes.
