How to Make Mixed Berry Streusel Muffins

Preparation: Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a muffin tin with paper liners.

Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, vegetable oil, and sour cream. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.

Berries: Gently fold in the frozen berries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.

Streusel Topping: In a small bowl, combine the streusel topping ingredients until crumbly.

Baking: Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Sprinkle the streusel topping over each muffin. Bake for 24-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cooling: Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 5 about minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for Big, Beautiful Berry Streusel Muffins

So how do you get one of those big, fluffy, moist, bakery style berry streusel muffins? I’ve got a few tips for you:

Don’t pass on the sour cream: The sour cream is the key to making these muffins super moist and delicious. 

Don’t over mix the batter: Over mixing your batter can produce dense, dry muffins. To preserve that moist, tender crumb you’re looking for in a berry muffins recipe, fold the batter together until just combined.

Don’t be afraid to use frozen berries: In my experience, frozen berries tend to work better because they hold their shape for the majority of the baking process. You end up getting a few juicy and plump whole berries in each bite!

How to Store Mixed Berry Streusel Muffins

Room Temperature: You can store these muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Refrigeration: If you plan to keep them longer, refrigerate the muffins for up to a week. Ensure they are in an airtight container or sealed plastic bag to prevent them from drying out.

Freezing: For longer storage, individually wrap muffins in plastic wrap and place them in a zip-top freezer bag. They can be frozen for up to three months. To thaw, leave them at room temperature or warm them briefly in the microwave.

Happy baking, y’all!
