How adorable are these "muffin Top" blueberry streusel muffins?

Blueberry Streusel muffin top muffins make a great breakfast treat.

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 cups make 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 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour, and 2 teaspoons 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.)

What is a muffin top?

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.

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.  muffin top muffins cooling on a rackThe 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.fresh blueberries give these muffins a fruity taste

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and Kosher salt and set it aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla extract and milk. Add flour mixture and stir by hand until just combined.
  5. Stir in the blueberries.

Hi Dianna I'm not sure how the random winner works. I assume those who enter with more options may have a slightly greater chance of winning though. You don't like social media? Carol

I don't have fb or twitter, I wish email entry was an option. Can I maybe still be entered *hesitangly*

Hi Emily. For some reason, the Tomoson widget is stripping out the Facebook part. But don't worry, everyone is in the same boat. I have switched over to Raffle copter for future giveaways. It is much more reliable, I think.

Sorry that you had this happen. Hope you win, though! They are the cutest ever muffin cups. Carol

OK, this widget is officially screwy. I had a problem on the thermometer widget.

I came to enter the muffin top giveaway. I didn't even try the first entry on that page. I did the other 3 entries and then it said I had 7 entries. Then I went back to the thermometer page and the widget says I have 7 entries now when I had 5 entries before. (the first entry is still zero)

AARRGGHH!! Thanks for the contest.

Hi Sarah. I have been having problems with all the Tomoson widgets. I'll be using Rafflecopter in future. Can't fix this one until the entry is over though. Sorry. Everyone else is in the same playing field though.

Sorry! Carol
