Blueberry Crunch Muffins – Betcha Can’t Eat Just One! Makes a Great Cake, Too

blueberry streusel cake n

A slice of moist cake stuffed with blueberries and topped with crunchy streusel makes for a great start to any day.

Jack says muffins are cake. Whether you use fresh or frozen blueberries, a batch of these muffins is easy to whip up anytime. They’re a favorite with fried eggs and fresh fruit for a tasty, satisfying brunch. Today, I made the recipe again, but in a 9-inch springform pan for a lovely snack to go with afternoon tea. A warm slice of this cake with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream would be an indulgent way to end a dinner – and an absolutely wrong way to begin your day!
