Blueberry crumble muffins

This is my favourite blueberry muffin recipe, to be honest I think that’s because its closer to a cupcake than to a muffin. I made this for a high tea birthday party recently and it went so well with everything!
Prep time: 30minutes

Bake time:25 minutes

Makes: 12 muffins


for the muffins:

  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups plain flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder, sifted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 250g blueberries

for the crumble:

  • 75g melted butter, extra
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 180C. Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla together with an electric mixer, beat until pale and creamy.

2. Gradually beat in the eggs until well combined. Add 1 1/4 cups of the flour, all of the baking powder and milk and beat until just combined.

3. Stir in 125gm of the blueberries into this mixture and then spoon the mixture into a muffin tray (preferably lined with muffin liners or heavily greased). Using the leftover 125gm of blueberries, place a few blueberries on top of each of the muffin mixtures.

4. In a seperate bowl mix the extra butter, remaining flour, brown sugar and cinnamon, it is best to mix these ingredients with a butter knife and to cut through the mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle this  mixture on top of the muffins and then bake for 20-25 minutes or until a tester skewer comes out clean.
