P- is away canoe camping with the boys (his idea of a Bachelor party) and I’m left at home to find a bunch of stuff to do one my own.

And guess what!?! It’s Jazz Fest in Montreal, which means a ton of free bands!

I’m definitely not one of those people who has trouble going out by myself, I love it, in fact. I get to go out when I want and come home when I want and EAT WHAT I WANT! Totally awesome.

I don’t usually cook as much when I’m alone, but I DO bake. Sooo these muffins came about and I plan on enjoying one (or two) each morning after a long sleep in!

They’re a classic blueberry muffin, really. Just made with buttermilk (the best) and a fabulous and simple streusel topping.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • Streusel Topping:
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with muffin liners.
  2. Prepare streusel topping by whisking together the sugar and flour. Add oil and mix together until texture is sand-like and oil is fully mixed in.
  3. In medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and buttermilk. Add flour mixture and stir until just combined. Gently fold in blueberries.
  5. Divide batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle muffins with streusel topping.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 min, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. When muffins are done, cool for a few minutes in the muffin pan before removing to cool on a wire rack.

    These look delicious but was wondering if you could sub other fruits (cherries) and if that would require changing any ratios of ingredients (sugar?)

    • katrina says:

      You can absolutely sub any fruit – just make sure you use 2 cups! I would keep the ratios of everything else the same 🙂

    These look so delicious! The topping on these looks like the perfect thing to add to an already accepted favorite. I feel there should be a national blueberry muffin in your pjs day!

    These muffins look perfect. Indulgent, but not over the top. Plus you could add any summer fruit you have on hand. Thanks for sharing!

    I really enjoy spending time by myself also…I really think it’s a girl thing because the.boy has no desire to be alone ever whereas I NEED and CRAVE alone time. It’s weird.

    Baking when alone is one of my favorite pastimes! I mean, an excuse not to share is always a welcome one!

  23. Joanna says:

    I’ll have to bake quite a few cupcakes for a summer fair very soon. Looks like I’ve found the recipe! Thanks!

  24. […] can all agree that streusel topped things are best, right? Streusel topped muffins and quick breads are my fav. And a good coffee cake (like this one) is always going to be the baked […]
