A few months ago I watched the movie Julie and Julia and decided to begin my own cooking project by making all of the 50 recipes I had saved in my recipe box at allrecipes.com. Well, I started cooking with great gusto, but soon remembered why I seldom try out new recipes. Quite simply, it's because family typically turns up their noses at them. Nevertheless, I recently tried out a new recipe for blueberry muffins. The result: an amazingly scrumptious muffin. Here is the recipe:
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the oven, or until done.
These are so delicious! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
