Stand mixer Sunday: Perfect blueberry muffins

I love when there's fruit available ... even though it's feeling chilly outside, at least I can eat something from a climate that's experiencing summer. So I whipped up some fresh blueberry muffins with a crunchy top.

Here's what you need:

1 and 1/3 cup flour

3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons baking powder

1/3 cup applesauce

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

1 cup blueberries

Mix all of the ingredients except for the blueberries in the stand mixer. When everything is incorporated, use a wooden spoon or spatula to gently fold the blueberries into the batter. Spoon it all into a muffin tin lined with paper cups -- this makes about 10 muffins. Tap the tin on the counter to level them off.

Next, make the delicious crunchy topping.

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup flour

2 tablespoons cold butter, chopped into little pieces

1 and a 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon

Mix these items together with your fingers to distribute the butter. Spread the topping evenly over the muffins, pat down the topping so it will create a crust.

Pop them in a 400-degree oven for about 20 minutes or until top is brown and crunchy. Great with a cold glass of milk.
