Since the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes is coming up on February 11th, I thought I would share a yummy recipe for Blueberry Muffins that we are planning on including in our celebration. (This recipe was adapted from one I found over at All Recipes.)
These muffins would also be great for any Saturday morning breakfast, since Saturdays are devoted to Mary.
Blueberry Muffins for Our Lady
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 TBS butter, cubed
- 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray muffin pan with Pam or other non-stick spray or line with muffin liners.
Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in large bowl. In a 2 cup measuring cup, place vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, and enough milk (just over 2/3 cups) to fill to the 2 cup mark. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. (Note: The batter is extremely thick.) Fill muffin cups right to the top for oversized muffins.
To make the crumb topping: mix together 2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 3 Tbs butter, and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with a fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
This recipes yields approximately 12-16 extra generously sized delicious muffins.
