  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease or line muffin pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, white and brown sugars, salt, and baking powder. Stir in oil, eggs, and milk until well blended and very few lumps remain. Gently fold in blueberries being careful not to mash them. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full, or slightly more for a larger muffin top.
  3. For the crumb topping, mix together the flour, softened butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Place a small amount on top of each muffin.
  4. Bake muffins in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden skewer pierced in the center comes out clean and dry.

I thought this was an excellent recipe. As you can see from my photo, there are a lot of blueberries in this one. I would reduce the blueberries to 1 cup next time. The crumb topping is what makes this one a winner.

I made these muffins and was very underwhelmed with the results. The topping just melted and spilled over the edge and got the muffins all soggy. The directions needs to say to fill the muffin pans only half way not 3/4. I will not make these again.

Delicious! The crumb topping really makes it a step above other recipes. I made a few without the crumbs for people in case they didn't want the extra sugar, but the first ones snatched up were the wonderful-looking crumb-topped muffins. This recipe was a hit and I had almost everything on hand. My only change: too many blueberries in the recipe, I only used about 1 cup, and the muffins were still very moist. I only baked them for 18 minutes. Thanks for a winner!

To reviewer Joeys_girl_73, don't get disheartened--I still have flops after 35 years of baking! The flavor of these muffins was OK--could have benefitted from the addition of vanilla and maybe a little spice in the batter--but the amount of blueberries was too much for the small amount of batter. I wouldn't recommend making larger muffins like I did (I made eight) because they were too moist and turned out more like a blueberry cobbler, in spite of baking for 30 minutes.

These muffins are fantastic. I didn't have any problems with butter melting into muffins..or burning etc. They came out picture perfect as you can see and just enough blueberries(can never be too much) I did add a little cinnamon and vanilla(two of my favorites)! I didn't read all the reviews until they were happily in the oven and I was a bit freaked out and was a worried I had picked the wrong recipe. I even made extra crumbles but they came out delicious! I cut them in 1/2 warm and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and they were to die for! Will make again and again!

These were so heavy and sweet. I didn't like them at all. The whole point of blueberry muffins to me is to have sweet berries. The sweet in this recipe killed the blueberry flavor. And I don't like cinnamon with blueberries either.

These are very good. I followed the recipe except that I added buttermilk instead of milk. I always substitute applesauce for the oil in muffins and did so here. I used equal amounts of applesauce and 1T of oil in place of 1/3 cup oil. I used frozen blueberries tossed with flour and they worked fine. I made 9 and they rose beautifully! I made sure to spray the top of muffin tin so the tops would not stick. Baked for 30 min (I live at high altitude) and they were beautifully golden brown and crisp on the tops but moist and cake like on the inside. I would probably add a little more sugar, possibly a 1/4 of a cup, to the batter. I only put a small amount of the topping on as I wanted to see how they rose. I will definitely make again but try apple next time.
