Acknowledging mortality- (Not) To die for Blueberry Muffins

with one comment

The last few months have been scary. Having almost lost two of the dearest people to me, mortality is looking oh so real. I still pray in the night, thanking God fervently for preserving their lives. Death is not something to take lightly…

So when I saw the title of this recipe, I was miffed. Blueberry muffins are definitely not something to die for… even in jest, we should not take the concept of mortality so lightly.

(NOT) To die for Blueberry Muffins



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Crumb topping (i normally halve this. It’s too much too much!!!)

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in blueberries. (Be careful not to overmix!!!) Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
  3. To Make Crumb Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
