These Texas Size Blueberry Honey Streusel Muffins are the perfect meal for a Dad on the go, or who wants to relax with the paper in their favorite chair. Their larger Texas size makes a muffin that will fill any dad’s appetite.
Makes 12 Texas Sized Muffins
special equipment (2) 6 cup Texas Muffin Pans
3 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 cups fresh Blueberries
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
11 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons honey (we used wildflower)
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray the muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray, if desired. Line the pans with 12 paper muffin cups. Set pans aside. Make the streusel topping. In a small bowl, add the flour, sugar and salt. Stir to blend. Add the honey and vanilla to the melted butter. Stir to blend. Pour the butter mixture over the flour mixture. Stir streusel with a spoon to mix. Streusel will resemble a thick paste. Set streusel mixture aside.
2.In a large bowl, add the flour, blueberries, sugar, baking powder and salt. Toss ingredients with a spoon until they are well blended. Set bowl aside. In a small bowl, add the milk, melted butter, eggs, honey and vanilla extract. Stir until well mixed. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the blueberry flour mixture. Stir the mixture until a batter just forms. Lumps in the batter are okay. Fill the 12 prepared muffin cups with the batter. Using a fork, fluff the streusel mixture until is breaks apart into pea sized clusters. Top each of the muffins with the streusel mixture. Put the muffin pans in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and continue baking for 20 to 25 minutes or until the muffins are done. Cool muffins in the pan. Serve.
