Baking with Berries

July 15, 2008

One of my favorite things about summer is fresh berries. Whenever you pick them up at the grocery store or farmer’s market you can almost be sure they will be sweet and juicy. Buy them any other time of the year, and they just aren’t the same. And with all these fresh berries comes the urge to bake something with them. A very nice customer of mine from work brought in bags of blueberries on Saturday. He and his wife grow them, and they decided they had too many to use so were kind enough to share with all of us. I only had a little over a cup so I decided I wanted to make some blueberry muffins. I had heard good things about this recipe on a couple other blogs so decided to give it a try. And the results? Well, I had two for breakfast. I guess that’s enough said. I thought these might be a little too sweet with the crumb topping but turns out, they are perfect!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup 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. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
  3. To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
