Blueberry Lemon Muffins With Cardamom Crumble

 Well good morning and happy Wednesday!
 I think a few of these treats went missing...
 Who can play games when there are muffins to be eaten?!
 It's good to wake the brain up with a thinking game like chess, and nourishment to keep your tummy happy. 
 Just a bite left. 
 These little babies are just begging to have a bite taken out of them.
So of course I did! 
Look at the lovely crumble.
That topping could stand to be more plentiful. Guess you'll have to make these treats yourself and go a little wild with the crumble eh? 

Blueberry Lemon Muffins with Cardamom Crumble: Makes 12-14
Crumb Topping:
  1. 2 tbsp melted butter
  2. 4 tbsp flour
  3. 2 tbsp brown sugar
  4. 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  5. 1/2 tsp cardamom
  6. pinch of salt
  7. pinch of nutmeg
  1. 1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
  2. 3 tbsp lemon juice
  3. 1 tsp lemon extract
  4. zest from 1 lemon
  5. 1tsp vanilla
  6. 1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tbsp greek yogurt (The super thick stuff; I use Fage brand)
  7. 2 medium eggs 
  8. 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
  9. 1 1/4 cup flour
  10. 2 tsp baking powder
  11. pinch of salt
  12. 3/4 cup frozen blueberries

  1. Preheat oven to 390 degrees. Line your muffin tins with paper cups. 
  2. Whisk together granulated sugar and lemon zest in a medium size. Add flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Beat together eggs in a medium sized bowl. Add in lemon juice, lemon extract, and vanilla. Beat together well.
  4. Add yogurt and melted butter. Continue to beat until you have a thick wet mixture. Add the dry mixture and mix until everything is thoroughly combined. 
  5. Fold in frozen blueberries. 
  6. Dole out the dough until each paper cup is 3/4 full. 
  7. Be generous heaping on the crumble. I pressed it down with my fingers. I realized after I made them I should have put more on each one. 
  8. Bake for 20 minutes and then let cool for about 3-5 minutes in the muffin tin. Put them to cook further on a cooling rack or do what I do at this point and eat your treats. You worked hard; you have to reward yourself.
