Cooking for One Recipes: Blueberry Muffins

Welcome to Cooking For One Recipes!  This series is designed for those of us who don’t need recipes for big meals- just enough for one person to eat without a ton of leftovers.  Or, if you are feeding a large family, you can certainly alter the recipes to whatever amount of people you need!

For those of you who use Pinterest I have created a board that will have all the recipes from this series.  Be sure to follow it!

5. To make crumb topping: mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter and 1 1/2 tspn cinnamon. Mix with a fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
