Blueberry Streusel muffin top muffins make a great breakfast treat.
If you are looking for a really tasty breakfast on the go for those busy mornings, try one of these blueberry streusel muffin top muffins.
I made these muffins as a bakery store super sized recipe because I wanted to make them in a new product that I just discovered. These sweet “Mr Muffin” muffin tops silicone baking cupsmake an over sized muffin. (affiliate link) The batter fills up the container and spills over to make a muffin top shape, which makes them perfect for the adorable jean shape on the bottom.
I love the flavor of a blueberry muffin, but I have them quite often. I wanted to dress up this recipe for their new container with a flavorful streusel topping. It’s simple to make. Just 4 tbsp of brown sugar, 1 tbsp of flour, and 2 tsp of butter. I mixed it with a fork and then crumbled it with my fingertips to get a coarse cornmeal texture. (you can use this streusel on any flavor of muffin for an extra touch of sweetness.)
The muffin cups will need to be well filled in order for them to make the muffin top shape. For those of you who are not familiar with the term muffin top, Wikipedia describes it as “overhanging fat that spills over the waistline of pants or skirts like the top of a muffin spilling over its paper casing because of tight clothing in that particular area of the body or excess body fat.”
In order for the muffin to spill over, you will have to fill the cups well. I put my batter almost to the top of the cup.
All that was left to do was to sprinkle the streusel topping on the batter and bake them. I used about 2 tsp of the streusel for each muffin.
When the muffins are done, let them cool for about five minutes before placing them on a wire rack to cool. Be sure to give them at least 15 minutes on the rack. The muffins will release a bit from the muffin cup and make taking them off easier. The muffins are super tasty, with the fruity flavor of fresh blueberries and perfect for your breakfast on the go. They are moist and delicious and really big.
Just remember not to eat too many of these super sized delights or they might just give you a muffin top!
