You probably won’t be shocked at all to hear that when I decided to make blueberry muffins, the first thing I googled was “starbucks blueberry muffin”. I have a problem with their muffins obviously. I go searching for a copycat recipe every few months and each time I’m shocked that there isn’t one. So I’m working my way through recipes, changing things here and there to see if I can get close to my beloved Starbucks muffin.
This one was pretty close. The taste was right on but it just wasn’t as light and fluffy. I’m thinking maybe cake flour next time? We loved them though and it gets bonus points for only making 8 muffins. I halve just about every recipe I do so it was nice to not have to do any math.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
