To me, muffins are basically a way to have cake for breakfast on days other than the morning after your birthday party. The best muffins come together quickly, have some fun textures and flavors, and scratch that cake for breakfast itch.

Blueberry streusel muffins check all those boxes. They have a soft cake crumb, sweet juicy berries, and a crumbly streusel topping. Combine that with ingredients that are easy to keep on hand, and you can have these muffins on your brunch table in about a half hour.

We all love fresh, sun-kissed berries picked just that morning. But many of us live a good distance from any sort of blueberry field. So frozen blueberries are just perfect for this recipe. And if you have one of those mixed frozen berry bags in your freezer, they'll work just fine as well.
