Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Prepare the muffin batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
    • Beat the eggs one by one, then add the vanilla extract.
    • Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Alternately add the milk, mixing until everything is well combined.
    • Gently incorporate the blueberries.
  3. Prepare the cream cheese deposit:
    • In another bowl, use a hand mixer to cream the cream cheese with the sugar until smooth.

  4. Prepare the crumble topping:
    • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, granulated sugar and flour.
    • Incorporate the cold butter using a fork or cookie cutter until the mixture is crumbly.
  5. Assemble the muffins:
    • Fill each muffin cup about three-quarters full with the batter.
    • Insert the piping bag into the center of each filled cup and squeeze a dollop of cream cheese filling into the batter.
    • Generously top each muffin with the crumble mixture.
  6. Cook:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
  7. Cool and store:
    • Let the muffins cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Store the muffins in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
