To Die For Blueberry Muffins

I am not a morning person at all. When my daughter screams Mommy in the morning all I want to do is hide under the covers for a few more minutes. So usually I am not in the mood to make a huge breakfast either. I like something that is good and quick.

Lately Virginia has been on a blueberry kick. She loves her some blueberry waffles. When I was at the grocery store I grabbed her some fresh blueberries. Well don't you know my silly goose turned up her nose at the blueberries. I don't like wasting food so I decided to make blueberry muffins. I usually always use the store brought muffin packs. But I ran across this To Die For Blueberry Muffin recipe on AllRecipes and decided to give it a shot.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners. I always like to have one muffin spot that has two liners. Like my mother I tell my family that the one that gets the double liner is going to have a lucky day. 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.
