My family and friends really enjoy fresh muffins. My berry-packed muffin flavor combo of almond extract and cardamon is just divine. And to top it off, the sweet lemon-cinnamon scented streusel is heavenly.—Shirley Riley, Water Valley, Mississippi
Lemon-Streusel Blueberry Muffins Recipe photo by Taste of Home
1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
Preheat oven to 375°. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and extracts; beat well. Beat in milk. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cardamom; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, lemon zest and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake 23-27 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in muffin comes out clean.
Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
