Serves 12


  • 7 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

For the Topping

  • 3 Tablespoons cold, unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degree’s. Line your muffin pan with foil or paper liners.
Melt the butter in a non-stick pan until little brown flecks appear. Remove from heat.
Stir together the milk, egg, the egg yolk and vanilla. Add in the browned butter.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add in the wet mixture and stir gently to combine.  Gently fold in the blueberries. Distribute evenly among the muffin cups.
To make the topping combine the butter, the flour and the sugar in a bowl and rub together with your fingers.
Put the muffins in the oven for about 10 minutes. Pull them out and scatter the topping evenly over the batter.  Put them back in for the another 8 or 10 minutes.  They will be done when a wooden tooth pick comes out clean.
