Delicious Blueberry Muffins with Crumble Toppings


Blueberry muffins are a classic treat that never fails to delight. The burst of juicy blueberries combined with the tender, moist muffin base is a match made in heaven. And if you want to take these muffins to the next level, adding a crumble topping adds a delightful crunchy texture and a touch of sweetness. In this recipe, we will guide you through the process of making these delectable blueberry muffins with crumble toppings.


For the Muffins:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour, for coating
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup milk, or more if needed

For the Crumble Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cold, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and grease or line a muffin tray.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk oil, egg, and milk.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in dense muffins.
  5. In a small bowl, toss the frozen blueberries with 1 to 2 tablespoons of flour. This helps prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the muffins during baking.
  6. Gently fold the coated blueberries into the muffin batter.
  7. Divide the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.
  8. In a separate bowl, combine the ingredients for the crumble toppings: granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, cold cubed butter, and ground cinnamon.
  9. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, mix the ingredients until crumbly and well combined.
  10. Sprinkle the crumble toppings generously over the muffin batter in each cup.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for about 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  12. Allow the muffins to cool in the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  13. Enjoy these delicious blueberry muffins with crumble toppings as a delightful breakfast or snack!
