Blueberry Streusel Muffins

I love muffins! There, I said it. My love grew for these sweet treats during our stint in Australia. Here, the muffins were packed with flavour, soft, fluffy and most importantly, huge! I wanted to try and recreate something similar from home and so these blueberry muffins were born! I fill the cases so they are nice and big and top them with a cinnamon crumb which really adds the most wonderful flavour to the finished product. Make and store in an airtight container for up to three days (if they last that long).
