Elizabeth's notes for this recipe:
I was so excited to try freshly made blueberry muffins,and so was my littlest son. He helped me make these amazingly delicious muffins. I will so be making my own muffins from scratch from here on out, never again will I make muffins from a box,and I hope you will agree once you give these a try! Enjoy!

Pre-Heat Oven to 375*

Whisk together flour, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl. Pour in melted butter and toss with a spatula until large crumbs form, set aside.
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.Then with an electric mixer on medium speed, cream butter and granulated sugar until fluffy.Add eggs and vanilla; mix until well combined. Reduce speed to low, alternate adding reserved flour mixture and milk, beginning and ending with flour. Gently fold in berries by hand with a large spoon or spatula.
Place paper cups in the muffin pans, if no paper cups, grease tin pan with pam or butter. Scoop with a large ice cream scoop into cups or pan.
Sprinkle muffins with crumbs and place in the oven for 30 mins. (seems like a long time, buts its perfect)
Remove from oven and place on cooling racks to cool, serve immediately with butter and some Juice, I hope you truly enjoy these, I know my family did :) Enjoy!!!

That's really good that your son likes to cook! My son started cooking when he was a teen and now he cooks at a resort and is on his way to becoming a chef. I have 4 boys and 3 of them cook. I also have 3 girls and 1 of them cooks. Go figure! I am teaching my younger daughter now as she wants to learn now. I am definitely making these muffins though!! Thanks for sharing it!
