Ingredients for Muffins

  • 2 c flour
  • 1-¼ c granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ c butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ c milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 c blueberries

Ingredients for Streusel

  • 4 tablespoon butter, melted
  • ¼ c flour
  • ½ c brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ c granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 375℉.
  • Using a KitchenAid stand mixer or hand mixer, first mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. 
  • Then, add butter, lemon zest, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract and mix just until all ingredients are incorporated together.
  • Finally, by hand, gently fold blueberries into batter.
  • Spoon batter into a well greased or lined muffin pan, filling each cup about two-thirds. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. The muffins will start to rise by this time.
  • In the meantime, make the streusel topping. In a bowl, mix together melted butter, flour, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt. Toss together using a fork until small crumbs form.
  • Remove muffins from oven, gently brush the top of each muffin with butter, and sprinkle with streusel topping.
  • Bake another 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy!
