Makes: 9-12


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup safflower or canola oil
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh blueberries

For the streusel

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cubed 


Preheat the oven to 400 F degrees. Line muffin tins with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients - 1 ½ cups flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and oil. In a third bowl toss the blueberries with the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Fold in the blueberries. Using an ice cream scoop, fill the muffin cups almost to the top.

For the streusel topping, mix all ingredients with your fingers, rubbing to make a coarse meal. Sprinkle the streusel over the muffins before baking, pressing lightly to adhere. Bake the muffins for 18-22 minutes or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean. Cool muffins in the pan for five minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Crumble Crate is the culmination of years of experimenting with cooking and baking in my home kitchen. Since I was a small child, I found a simple pleasure in creating fresh delicious treats and sharing them with my family and friends. As life became more complicated, the basic task of baking in my kitchen became an even more critical and comforting sanctuary.

I want to share this joy of baking with you so that you too can experience the bliss you feel when you create and share fresh baked goodies with your loved ones. My goal is for us to explore baking together and take the stress out of the process so that you can decompress and learn to find refuge in your kitchen. I can’t wait to begin this baking journey with each of you!
