Now, it just so happened by random but auspicious coincidence that blueberries were on sale that very day at the Manhattan Beach Ralph's at $1.88 for a a 6 oz. box. With blueberries at that price the moment was ripe for making muffins.
But first I needed a basic blueberry muffin recipe to build upon. I went on line and looked over a few, then zipped back to Ralph's,
So I call this new recipe:
Go Crazy Blueberry Muffins
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup milk
4 cups blueberries
1/2 cup flour
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
(This batch of topping might end up being might 'way more topping than you need, but I haven't yet configured how to measure out a smaller batch!)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners.
Combine the 3 cups of flour, 2 cups of sugar, and baking powder. Add the vegetable oil. Lightly beat the eggs with the milk and stir into the flour mixture. The batter will be very stiff. Fold in the blueberries.
Fill the muffin cups to the top. It's easier to get the batter into the muffin cups if you use two spoons.
Mix together the 1/4 cup of sugar, the 1/2 of 1/3 cup of flour and the cinnamon. Cut in the 1 tablespoon of butter until it's pretty crumb-ish.
They were crazy good!
Spread with some butter they were magnificent.
These muffins were so unbelievebly good that Justin had to bring some of the left-overs to his good his neighbors for them to try.
