Can I be honest for a minute? I really am not a huge fan of Blueberry Muffins. They’re never something I buy in a store because most of them are just okay and not worth the calories. I’m kind of like that with store bought or bakery muffins in general, really. They’re too sweet or too dry or not flavorful enough; so I just reserve muffins for making at home. BUT…
Confession: I am ADDICTED to Starbucks Blueberry Muffins. Recently they change their distributor or something because I never used to like them, but now I do. They never used to appeal to me but now? Now every single time I step foot into a Starbucks they scream my name. LOUDLY.
Dorothy…Dorothy…we’re over here don’t you see us? Blueberry Streusel Muffins…we go so good with that Americano you’re drinking….Dorothy…don’t miss out there’s only one left!
Seriously, am I the only one that hears food talking to her? It happens everywhere I go. (Don’t get me started on the Entenmann’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.)
ANYWAY, when I was having company recently I wanted to make a killer muffin for breakfast. I have a few that I love on this blog, most stemming from my Lemon Crumb Muffins I made a few years back. They’re tender and soft, flavorful and they have the perfect texture. The secret to the perfect muffin, in my opinion, is using sour cream, baking soda and vinegar. The sour cream gives body and the baking soda and vinegar give a crumb that is unparalleled by baking powder.
For these blueberry muffins, I simply took out the cream cheese and POOF: I had me a Starbucks copycat blueberry muffins recipe on my hands.
Everyone who tries one of these muffins raves about them. I mean, how could you not? They’re the perfect muffin AND they’re blueberry AND they have streusel. If you ask me, it ain’t a muffin without gorgeous streusel. Speaking of gorgeous streusel, look at the streusel on these lemon streusel muffins…WOW.
This is an easy streusel that comes together fast and easy. It’s crunchy and sweet and perfect with the blueberry. Now…if you’re not in the mood to make a crumbly streusel topping, you can leave it out…but that’s kind of anti-muffin, right? If you don’t believe me, ask Katrina. Without the amazing topping on her coffee shop banana streusel muffins, they would look so…plain and ordinary.
These Starbucks copycat blueberry muffins also freeze well…and they go down super easy. 🙂
