Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup oil (vegetable or canola oil)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries , fresh or frozen

Crumb topping:

  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cold butter , chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 374 degrees F. Line a standard size muffin tin with liners, or grease well with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. 
  • Add oil, egg, buttermilk, and vanilla and mix just until combined. Don't over mix (the batter doesn't need to be "smooth") 
  • Toss the blueberries in a spoonful of flour. This will help them not to sink to the bottom of the muffin. Gently fold blueberries into the batter.  
  • Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. 
  • Make the crumb topping by adding all ingredients to a bowl. Use your fingers or a fork to work the butter into the mixture. 
  • Sprinkle crumb mixture over the tops of muffins in the pan.
  • Bake for for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs. 
  • Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
