Braun Food Processor Blueberry Muffin with Crumb Top

This recipe for food processor blueberry muffins takes an old recipe and uses a new method. These turned out light and fluffy because the butter was incorporated perfectly through the use of a food processor.

When I had an extra box of blueberries, I couldn’t think of a better way to use them than blueberry muffins. Instead of looking up a recipe on the Internet, I chose my newly acquired Betty Crocker Picture Cookbook. I collect older cookbooks.  Reading old cookbooks is like looking at a slice of time, and this one is no exception.

The cookbook said to use a blending fork or pastry blender.  Modern times?  It’s a food processor, and none better than the Braun which has both a pastry blade and a smaller bowl that fits inside – and it’s quiet so I can make things without waking up the neighborhood.

Muffins don’t always have to be blueberry, there’s apple, date, raisin, orange, to name a few.  Did you know that the word muffin originates from the German muffe or muff used to warm the hands?  Muffins are little muffs to warm the fingers.  Muffins are great a few minutes out of the oven with some butter on them.  Get to them quickly though, they go fast!

I’ve always liked crumb topping, and it’s so easy to make in the small bowl that fits inside my food processor.  I went all out when I made it and used the Penzey’s Vietnamese cinnamon instead of the regular cinnamon I have sitting in the pantry. These muffins were exceptional – sliced open with some fresh, unsalted butter.

Summer doesn’t last too long, so get your blueberries and make these food processor blueberry muffins while they are in season and surprise your loved ones with warm muffins in the morning.
