Blueberry Muffins with Lemon Streusel

Just because is a great reason to make these.

Blueberry Muffins Lemon Streusel

When I think of blueberries, muffins come to mind and when I think of muffins, blueberries come to mind.

Muffins are so easy to make too especially when using baking cup liners so you don’t have to grease the muffin tin.

I’m really liking recipes with blueberry and lemon lately.

To me, the taste when pairing the two flavors as simple, fresh and natural.

To add a little bling to blueberry muffins a quick and easy thing to do is top them with streusel which has just a few ingredients from right out of the pantry.

The streusel in this recipe has a bit of lemon zest in it but feel free to leave it out if you don’t have a lemon on hand.

It’s that time of year when you may see some really good deals on fresh blueberries which freeze up nicely in plastic zipper bags if you buy more than you use.

Here are some tips for freezing berries.

Preparation for freezing berries:

  1. Remove the leaves and, or stems
  2. Put the berries in a strainer or colander and rinse them in cool water
  3. Transfer the berries on to a paper-towel lined plate and let them completely air dry

To prevent the berries and fruit from freezing in a “solid block” form:

  1. Spread the berries and fruit out on a pan or plate that will fit in your freezer (i.e. a large plate, small pizza pan or smaller sized metal pan like a brownie pan).
  2. Place the berries and fruit in the freezer just long enough until they’re slightly frozen (about an hour).
  3. Then transfer them to a plastic Ziploc or zip-top bag.
  4. Squeeze out as much air as possible from the bag before tightly sealing it.
  5. Store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Just a quick defrost and the blueberries are ready for use in recipes like these “Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake with Lemon Glaze“, “Mango, Blueberry and Ginger Galette“, “Mini Loaf Banana Blueberry Bread“, and “Berry Wine Ice Cream Sauce“.

Let’s check out the ingredients for these scrumptious muffins.

Cold butter right out of the fridge works best for this so that the streusel crumbles aren’t too glumpy.

Cut the butter into the mixture by smashing it with a fork until the mixture turns into small crumbles.
