Units Scale

for the muffins ~

  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

for the streusel ~


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, kosher salt, and baking soda for the muffins. Set aside.
  3. Make the muffins ~ In a large bowl using either a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat the salted butter and granulated sugar for 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
  5. Add the sour cream and vanilla extract and beat for 1 minute.
  6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter sugar mixture. Mix until just combined. Set aside.
  7. Make the streusel ~ In a medium sized bowl, combine the streusel ingredients. Stir until well combined and crumbly pieces are formed. Set aside.
  8. Divide the muffin batter evenly in the prepared muffin pan using a large cookie scoop. Top each muffin with a generous amount of the streusel and press down slightly. If desired, top muffins with 4 to 5 blueberries.
  9. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle of the muffins.
  10.  Remove the muffins from the oven. Cool 5 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar.


  • Room temperature ~ Let the refrigerated ingredients come to room temperature and they will mix more smoothly.
  • Don’t overmix ~ After adding the dry ingredients to the wet ones, just mix until combined. Overmixing will result in tough coffee cake muffins.
  • Easy scooping ~ To easily portion the muffin batter, use this large cookie scoop.
  • Add berries ~ To add a pop of fresh flavor, tuck a few blueberries in with the streusel.
