Easy Brunch Blueberry Muffins
Here’s one of my FAVORITE blueberry muffin recipes. I highly recommend you add this one to your recipe stash because hoooooney these muffins bake up so moist, fluffy and tender. And they’re pretty easy and down right impressive looking to boot. (provided your glazing technique is a little better than mine…yeah)
You can use other fresh berries in place of the blueberries. Strawberries are a favorite of mine!
I usually crank out these blueberry muffins on special occasions like a Fathers Day breakfast in bed, holiday brunches or on snowy days when we’re all trapped in the house.
Most people would think that the crumb topping and almond glaze would make these blueberry muffins overly sweet but NOPE! It adds just the right amount of sweetness to the natural tartness of fresh blueberries. And this recipe has A LOT OF BLUEBERRIES!!!!
Eating these rugged muffins is like sinking your teeth down into a miniature homemade blueberry cobbler crisp!
