THE BEST muffins I’ve ever tasted! Yep, hands-down without a doubt! Sweet, but not sickly sweet, a little tartness from the huckleberries, a wonderful richness from the white chocolate chips, and a streusel topping that is the sparkling tiara on top of these coffee cake-like muffins!
Now, I know that huckleberries aren’t carried at most stores. You do have to order them while they’re in season, but you could easily just substitute blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries! 😀 I do highly recommend that you try huckleberries at least once in your lifetime, though. They’re a bucket list must! 😉
These muffins really actually do taste like coffee cake, and have just a hint of banana flavor that helps to make them extra moist! Topped with my own basic go-to streusel topping, they’re perfect for breakfast, brunch and even dessert!
One extra trick that I like to do, is to bake the berries frozen in the batter so that they hold their shape and don’t disappear leaving a blueish hole where there was once a juicy berry! 😉
I was out of cupcake liners, but I do recommend that you use them. I got them out ok, but it does take a lot of extra time….and extra cleaning of the pans, too. Who needs that, right?
With a sharp knife and the help of a spoon, they all came out with little trouble! 😉
I was VERY lucky to get this shot….a few moments later four of them disappeared! It’s a mystery! (But I have a feeling that my hubby had a hand, or two, in it.) 😉
I so wish you could just try one right now! Still slightly warm…with a little real cream butter melted in the middle….ok, sorry. That was just mean.
But you won’t be teased if you just simply make a batch, right? 😀 They aren’t hard to make, and bake up so beautifully! And I got 21 muffins, which was plenty enough to share with our neighbors! 😀
I hope you enjoy yours as much as we did! Take care all, and I’ll see ya later! 😀 ~Kelly
