In my last post I shared some of the reasons that I love brunch.  One of the reasons that I failed to mention was that I have so many recipes in the “Breakfast/Brunch” section of my recipe collection that I am dying to try!  I need excuses like hosting or attending brunches to make these recipes because while I do eat breakfast everyday, it is usually not something quite as indulgent as most of the recipes that I want to try are.

My mother-in-law made these muffins with fresh blueberries and the reason that I loved them so much was because of how cakey they were.  Fresh berries can be more expensive this time of year so I made these with a frozen berry blend of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries and they were just as delicious.  The really special part is the crumby streusel topping which provides a nice crunch and extra sweetness.

    You had me at “streusel.” LOL But heck, with triple berries, I’d say this is almost health food. Yup, that’s what I’m sayin’ and I’m sticking to it. 😉

    I have a berry muffin recipe I love, but why have I never added a streusel topping?? It obviously makes everything better!

      Thank you Susan! They were pretty yummy! I love the contrast of the dry streusel with the bursts of moisture from the berries!
