TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake (Muffins)

Another easy and delicious pick for Tuesdays with Dorie. Sihan of Fundamentally-Flawed picked the blueberry crumb cake. And let me just take a moment here and give a mad shout out to crumb toppings. I mean, seriously... is there anything more delicious than a crumb topping? And everytime I make one, I'm like.. DAMN. Why don't more baked goods have crumb toppings? More sugar and butter and nuts???? When is that EVER bad?

Ummm... pretty sure... NEVER. I halved the recipe and made muffins instead of the cake and even with overcooking the muffins a little (the crumb topping got a little TOO crunchy, but still delicious!!!) they turned out yummy. I couldn't stop picking at them... and the little pieces of nuts that stuck out of the topping.

And once I started picking at one of them...


I had a hard time stopping. Too bad I had to use frozen blueberries. These would have been amazing with fresh, in season blueberries.

Check out the recipe at Sihan's Blog.

Nothing is better than a crumb topping (well, almost nothing). Your muffins look totally divine! I would stand there and pick at the topping, too! I have that horrible habit of totally picking at my favorite parts of the baked goods I make--of course, I end up picking so much that the actual baked good disappears!

How smart to make cupcakes with cup liners. The blueberries made cleaning the pan a chore but this one was so worth it. Glad you loved it too!
