Giant Blueberry Muffins

February 10, 2010 § 1 Comment

My office held a bake sale to help raise money for the “Fun at Work” fund. It’s a great way to get employees involved and share their favorite baked goods with each other. Even though it’s tough to find time in our busy schedules to bake (especially on a week night), I was happy to participate! (These also make a lovely housewarming gift!)

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
(Note: fresh blueberries are key; frozen will make your muffins soggy – not good eats!)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

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.

To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.

    These are about the best muffins ever! I absolutely love them…obviously, I bought two at the bake sale. 🙂 Ben was also enthused when I brought one home for him. Yum!
