Vanilla Cinnamon Streusel Topping
¼ cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 ½ cups lightbrown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/8 teaspoon salt
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
3 cups blueberries or diced rhubarb (or diced apples, fresh cranberries, any type of berry)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the oven to have the rack in the upper third position.
Spray a muffin tin very generously with non-stick cooking spray. Line with paper muffin cups and place on the baking sheet.
Prepare the streusel by pulsing all ingredients in a food processor to get a crumbly mixture. Set aside.
For the muffins, in a large bowl, hand whisk the brown sugar with the oil and butter. Whisk in the eggs, vanilla and buttermilk well. Fold in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to make a smooth batter. Fold in the fruit and blend well. Using an extra large muffin scooper, scoop huge gobs of batter into muffin cups. Top each with a crown of streusel.
Bake 25-35 minutes until golden brown. Let muffins stand 15 minutes before attempting to remove muffins from pan (let them set up).
