Two of my favorite flavor in the world are white chocolate and blueberries. I like them separately of course but when they are together?
These muffins are full of both. Big, melty white chocolate chunks and sweet blueberries are nestled in buttery muffins with a crunchy streusel on top. Every bite is full contrasting textures and flavors. When you make these your entire house is going to smell amazing. Really amazing.
I have always loved blueberry anything. When I was about four my dad and I were headed out of town on a plane. It was early in the morning and as we drove to the airport I asked dad if we would have breakfast on the plane.
“I want blueberry pancakes!” I said, jumping in my seat. Those were the days before seatbelts were required.
He smiled and shook his head,”They don’t do blueberry pancakes on planes.”
I just grinned and said, “They will for me, Daddy!”
I think he sighed. I don’t remember. What I do remember is that they served blueberry pancakes on that flight.
So, these aren’t pancakes but they are muffins and they are amazing. The crumb is tender and so buttery it’s unbelievable. The streusel gets crunchy and crumbly and the white chocolate and blueberries just dance along on your taste-buds like a team from a 1930s musical. Addictive, delicious, simple, and they freeze well.
Now is the time for fresh blueberries so don’t wait too long to get these blueberry white chocolate muffins on the table.
