I love muffins, and this bakery-style muffin recipe from Hot Chocolate Hits on Youtube is my absolute favorite! It’s super easy to put together, and you can actually change the blueberries into anything you want – chocolate chips, raspberries, etc. This recipe is a staple in our house, and we usually have them in the mornings, but they’re perfect any time of the day. Watch the video below to learn the full recipe.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line your cupcake tray with paper liners. Next, in a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tsp lemon zest, and 1/2 tsp ground cardamom. Whisk together thoroughly, then add one large egg, 1/3 cup buttermilk, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Continue whisking until well combined, then gently fold in 1 cup of blueberries.
Next, in another bowl, add 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, and 1/4 cup softened butter. Mix together well. Now, it’s time to assemble the muffins. Fill each cupcake liner around 2/3 of the way full with the batter. Then, divide the streusel topping between the muffins. Place the muffins in the preheated oven at 375 degrees F and bake them for 20 to 25 minutes or until they are golden brown. After baking, let them cool slightly, then serve and enjoy!
