Big bakery style blueberry muffins with a sugar crumb topping, tall muffin tops, and tart blueberries in every bite.


  • 2 1/2 C (320g) All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 C (95g) Cornmeal
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 C (80g) Salted Butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 C Vegetable Oil
  • 1 C (200 g) Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Lg Eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 C Whole Milk, at room temperature
  • 1/3 C (85g) Full Fat Sour Cream, at room temperature
  • 2 C Fresh or Frozen Blueberries

For Crumb Topping

  • 2/3 C Flour
  • 1/3 C Sugar
  • 4 TBSP Melted Butter


Preheat the oven to 425 and line muffin tins with liners.

For Crumb Topping

  • In a small mixing bowl stir together the flour and sugar.
  • Pour in the melted butter and mix with a fork until combined and crumbly.

For the Muffins

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the melted butter, oil and sugar, until combined.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until eggs are fully incorporated.
  • Add the milk and sour cream and whisk until combined.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients- flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt – with a rubber spatula until just combined.
  • Toss blueberries in a bit of flour just to coat, then carefully fold into the muffin batter.
  • Fill the muffin liners all the way to the top and add 1 TBSP of the crumb topping.
  • Bake at 425 for 5 minutes, then with the muffins still in the oven, lower the temp to 350 and bake for another 15-17 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden and a toothpick comes out mostly clean with a few moist crumbs attached.


*Do not thaw frozen blueberries before making this recipe

*You can freeze muffins after baking for up to 3 months. Cool completely then place in airtight container. Thaw on counter, then heat in microwave for 10 seconds.
