Blueberry Muffins

Years ago, I saw this pin on Pinterest for copycat Costco Muffins.  We decided to try the recipe for blueberry muffins but had to make some modifications.  I usually only have yellow cake mixes on hand, so we used that instead of a white cake mix.  A few years ago, cake mix companies shrunk the size of cake mixes from 18 oz. down to 15 oz.  To make up the difference, we increased the flour.  Then we added a delicious streusel to the top and our favorite easy blueberry muffins were born.

A couple tips before you start, make sure you rinse the blueberries before you add them to the muffins.  Otherwise, you will get green muffins. Trust me on this one. 🙂  Second, this recipe is very easy to make gluten-free.  Just use a gluten-free yellow cake mix and gluten-free flour.  They taste just like the regular muffins, which doesn’t always happen with gluten-free food.

 

Blueberry Muffins with Streusel

A Yellow cake mix

1/2 cup flour

1 tsp. baking powder

2/3 cup milk

1/3 cup oil

3 eggs, beaten

1 1/2-2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Combine cake mix, flour, and baking powder in a bowl.  Add eggs, milk, and oil until just combined.  Rinse blueberries, pat dry with paper towels, and then carefully fold into batter.  If using frozen berries, thaw in microwave for 30 seconds and then rinse.  If you skip rinsing, you will have green muffins. 🙂

 

 

Preheat oven to 375.  Line muffin tins with paper cups or spray with cooking spray.  Measure about 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin cup.

 

Streusel

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

3 Tbsp. melted butter

Combine flour and sugars.  Stir in melted butter until crumbly. Then sprinkle on top of muffin batter.

 

 

Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.  Makes 16-18 muffins. Yum!
