Blueberry Muffins with Streusel

I made these for a family breakfast the other day.  Yum yum YUM!   This recipe  may seem complicated, but I promise it’s not!  Biggest thing to remember is to pull butter, eggs and milk out of fridge way ahead to come to room temperature on their own.

As always – enjoy!!

So easy and so delicious!  I have been reading about this for years, and just never took the time to make it til this past weekend.  Well, what the heck have I been waiting for?  I served this with warm apple butter that I made in past few weeks.  This could be served with warm maple syrup or fresh fruit compote or whatever you have on hand!
