4 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon fine sea salt
¼ cup butter, softened

1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Make the streusel
Combine all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until coarse crumbs form. Set aside.

Make the muffins
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine.

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, mix to combine. Alternately add flour mixture and milk. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the blueberries. Do not overmix.

Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners. Fill muffin cups ¾ full. Add a heaping tablespoon of streusel topping to each muffin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. If using frozen blueberries bake for 25-30 minutes.

Chef Notes

Muffins freeze well. Simply wrap in plastic, place in a zip top freezer bag and freeze for up to 1 month. To defrost, unwrap muffin, place on a microwave safe plate and cook on 50% power for 1-2 minutes.
