Blueberry White Chip Muffins

Our other favorite muffin recipe. More like dessert recipe!

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/2 Tbsp grated lemon peel
12 ounces white chips, divided
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
3/4 cup milk

Combine flour, sugars, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Stir in milk, egg, butter and lemon peel. Stir in 1 1/2 cups morsels and blueberries. Spoon into 18 prepared cups, filling almost full. Sprinkle with streusel topping (see below). Bake for 22-25 minutes or till wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool slightly. Place remaining morsels in small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on medium-high (70%) for 30 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10-20 second intervals till smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag. Squeeze to drizzle over muffins. Serve warm.

Streusel: Combine 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in bowl. Cut 3 Tbsp butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles course crumbs.

Note: This didn't have an oven temp on it. I'm guessing 375 to 400? What do you all think?

Oh my heavens . . . these sound so good! Where do you find all your good recipes? You have a talent for that, Mary!

Carol said...

When you make this recipe, do you use fresh or frozen blueberries?

Mary said...

I've always used frozen just because I never think to buy fresh. Maybe I will today. . .

Warm, I wasn't sure what to think of these, but cooled off and I was happy girl! These are really yummy (all right--how fattening are they, Mar?!).
