This is Sarai, and these are her blueberry muffins made from scratch!

pg. 40
PREP: 20 min, BAKE: 25 min (dozen)

Streusel Topping:
2 tbsp firm butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinammon
Prepare first and put in the fridge. 

1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil (we used canola)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (we used orange extract)
1 large egg
2 cups all purpose flour (or whole wheat)
1/3 cup sugar (not too bad, eh?!)
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup fresh or canned (drained) blueberries (we used 1.5 cup frozen). 

Beat milk, oil, vanilla, and egg in a big bowl. Stir in flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt all at the same time. The batter will be lumpy, and that's okay. Then gently fold in the blueberries. Top with a couple of spoons full of streusel.

Ours took about 23 minutes at 400 degrees. They tasted as good as they look! If you tried this recipe, let Kitchen Betties know how it turned out!

  1. This is my very favorite post in all the world! I think it is because of the lovely picture you found of me when I was just a girl learning to cook myself. Smart of you to put it up on the web now when anyone who would remember me is ancient and grizzled. I especially like the smile and smooth skin which appears for all the world as though it would never be smitten with liver spots.
    BTW -- thanks for sending me a sample via your mother -- um, umm, good! Love, your very oldest granny of grannies, K
