Lake Lure Blueberry Muffins

Though Penny at Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen freely admits to finding this very simple and highly gratifying recipe at, I’ve still decided to re-name them in her blog’s honor.  I take a lot of food into work but rarely do I get actual requests, or in one case an outright demand for more of the same, and the sooner the better.

Luckily for all involved, there are two extra cups of blueberries in my refrigerator awaiting their assignment. Take it from me, if you want to be the singular hotshot of your office on an otherwise bleak and routine Monday morning, these muffins are your ticket to stardom.

Lake Lure Blueberry Muffins

For the muffins:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries

For the cinnamon crumb topping

1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

To Make Crumb Topping; Mix together the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with a fork or your fingers until butter is incorporated and set aside.

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 beat to incorporate. Add enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in your blueberries. Fill the muffin cups 2/3 full or right to the top.  Sprinkle with crumb topping mixture just before baking.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

    Gary, What an honor! Your muffins look fabulous and I appreciate you naming them for my blog. I have been overrun with company lately and haven’t had a chance to check in on all of my favorite blogs. Thanks for the shout out! Wish you had had more time when you visited Ga. to swing on over to Lake Lure.
