Blackberry Pecan Streusel Muffins

Prepare yourself for one of the most delectable muffins ever! Blackberry Pecan Streusel Muffins have it all. These muffins don’t have flat tops like some muffins. They puff up very beautifully and have double blackberry flavor with whole blackberries and blackberry yogurt in the batter. Then they have a delicious pecan streusel topping pressed into the muffins before baking. After the muffins are baked, a yummy powdered sugar glaze is added on top for even more spectacular flavor and sweet taste. Incredible is only one way to describe these fantastic muffins.

Last week we had some friends from our Sunday school class at church come down with the flu (even with a flu shot!) 🙁 So I made up a batch of Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, Bacon Cheddar Biscuits and Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cake Bars for their dinner. Then I decided to make these lovely muffins for breakfast for the next day because I knew she still wouldn’t feel up to making anything. They loved them but decided to freeze about half of these muffins and the dessert bars so their parents could sample them next week when they come in for the holidays.

If you’re looking for a spectacular breakfast muffin to make for the holidays, special occasion breakfasts, or just because you love muffins for breakfast any time and any place, then put Blackberry Pecan Streusel Muffins on your list! While these delightful muffins have a few more steps than some recipes, they are so worth it. Blackberry Pecan Streusel Muffins are so mouthwatering you will want to make them for you, your family and your friends, and very often! I know I do. 🙂

    Hi Teresa! As promised the results are in, for the King Arthur flour “Berry Good” baking contest at the Salem Fair here in Virginia. I used your blackberry pecan streusel muffin recipe and won first place! The only change I made, was using a peach glaze instead of the vanilla. It was very difficult for me to choose one recipe to enter, out of all of your wonderful recipes, but I’m glad I chose the blackberry muffins! Thank you so much for giving me permission to use your recipe for my entry in this contest. My twin sister won second place with her mini lemon fruit tarts, baked in canning jar lids. I commented on your Facebook page also. Your delicious muffins where the hit of this years fair! Thanks again! 🙂
