Let’s hear it for Grandma Judy and her Crumb Topped Blueberry Muffins!

Carol’s mom, affectionately known as Grandma Judy is always welcome up here to the cottage. She’s one of our most trusted recipe tasters but she’s also wowed us with a recipe or two of her own. Case in point, these scrumptious Crumb Topped Blueberry Muffins.

Now, before I walk us through this recipe, how about a few more muffin suggestions since muffins are always a good idea in cottage country. I love these savoury CHEDDAR CORNMEAL MUFFINS and also these EASY SWEET POTATO MUFFINS. All these recipes are easy to make and the results are major tasty.

Time to make grandma proud! Let’s make CRUMB TOPPED BLUEBERRY MUFFINS.

Ingredients for Crumb Topped Blueberry Muffins

Before you get started, remember to bring the butter and eggs to room temperature. This will help create muffins that crumb, but don’t fall apart. Using soft butter for the topping also allows it to melt with the sugar while still holding its shape.

Another comment about ingredients, how about those blueberries? Try to purchase (or pick!) wild blueberries whenever possible. They are noticeably smaller in size, so they disperse better throughout the batter and ensure a higher chance of delicious blueberry flavour with each bite.

Pick up patterned paper cups to make your muffins look even more appetizing.

Ramp up the presentation of this dynamite recipe by using parchment or coloured muffin cups. Like my dear friend Chef Heinz Wagner says, “The eyes eat first!” I’ve listed a few options further down in this post should you wish to purchase.

The muffins with their crumb tops

Fresh baked goods are always a crowd-pleaser, and this recipe is one that never disappoints. The muffins are cakey yet not too dense. They’re also slightly sweet thanks to the fresh blueberries. Finally, we’re taken by how appetizing they look thanks to the crumbly, crumb topping. Beauty!

Serve them for breakfast, brunch or as an afternoon snack – this essential CRUMB TOPPED BLUEBERRY MUFFIN recipe is a keeper!
