Healthy or cakey – I love them all.
These Bakery Style Blueberry Muffins fall under the cakey category. The muffin batter tastes a lot like a butter cupcake, and it pairs beautifully with the sweet/tart blueberries.
My favorite part of these muffins, though, is the crunchy sugar crust that forms as the muffins bake. That crunch adds the perfect bit of texture, and it makes the muffins extra delicious.

- 1 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin. Be sure to grease the entire muffin tin as tops will rise out of the cup. Set aside.

Mix in eggs and vanilla until combined.
Add milk, and mix until incorporated.
Stir in 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, toss together blueberries and 1 tablespoon flour.
