pinterest loves--blueberry buttermilk muffins

This recipe turned out to be pretty involved, but they sure are tasty!  The streusel topping is my favorite part....butter and can you go wrong?! 

So here is my recipe, tweaked slightly to fit my likes!  Oh and of course I doubled the recipe--twice the muffins for practically half the work!  Sweet!

Blueberry Buttermilk Muffins (print recipe)
(this is the doubled recipe, half it if you want!)

Streusel Topping
6 T white sugar
6 T brown sugar
2/3 cup flour
1 stick hard butter, cut into pieces

2 cups blueberries (I used frozen and also should've used 4 cups but only wanted 2)
2 1/4 cups  plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon water
5 cups  unbleached all-purpose flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoon table salt
4 large eggs
8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cup buttermilk
4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 425 degrees!

Take about a cup to a cup and a half of the blueberries and put them in a small pan.  Add the water and 1 tsp of water.  Bring to a simmer for a few minutes until the blueberries reduce into a sticky, syrupy goodness!  Set aside until you need them later on!

Mix together all the wet-ish ingredients!  Add the dry ingredients, doing flour last.  It's okay if there are some lumps!  Lumps are good, it means you didn't over mix!  Add the rest of your blueberries and if you used fresh, gently mix them in!  If you used frozen blueberries like me, just have at it!

Next fill your muffin cups with the batter!  About 2/3 full is good!  If you don't have a muffin scoop, you should get one!  They're great for muffins and cupcakes and even large cookies!!  Here is the one I have!

Next comes the sorta tricky part.  You're gonna need the blueberry syrupy stuff you made at the beginning!  Put about a teaspoon on top of each unbaked muffin.  Then take a knife or some pointy object and swirl it in with a figure eight motion!  Most of mine stayed on top, which was fine with me!  Still tasty!

Now you need to make your streusel topping.  Combine all ingredients and use your fingers to combine until you have little pea size chunks of butter and sugar!  Sprinkle it on the muffins!

Bake for about 15 minutes! 

Take them out, wait about 10 minutes, then lick the streusel topping off the top....wait no, get a big glass of milk and enjoy the whole scrumptious muffin together!
