Ingredients

Topping:

  • 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted

Muffins:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup blueberries wild or regular sized, fresh or frozen but defrosted and drained

Filling:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Instructions

  • If you’re using frozen berries, make sure to let them defrost and drain well before adding them to the muffins.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pans with paper baking cups.
  • Make the topping by stirring together all topping ingredients with a fork in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  • Using a hand mixer, mix eggs with electric mixer about 1-2 minutes until thick and frothy. Mix in sugar and oil, beat until creamy. Mix vanilla, vinegar, baking soda, and salt. Mix in sour cream then stir in flour using a wooden spoon. (Batter may be slightly lumpy.) Stir in blueberries.
  • Make the cream cheese filling: stir (or use a hand mixer) together cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  • Fill muffin cups with about 2 tablespoons of muffin batter. Add about 1-2 teaspoons of cream cheese to the center of each muffin, then top with another 1 tablespoon of batter. Sprinkle the crumble evenly over the top of the muffins.
  • Bake for 15-22 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of a muffin. Cool 5 minutes in pan then remove to a rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.
