Tee and Cakes Blueberry Streusel Muffinslaurasrecipes
If you’ve visited Boulder, Colorado then you may be familiar with one of our local foodie treasures… Tee and Cakes Bakery. The charming shop located in downtown Boulder offers some of the most creative and delicious sweets around. They became very well known for their inventive cupcake flavors including their famous Chocolate and Bacon cupcakes that were featured on Food Network.
One of my favorite Tee and Cakes treats is their wonderful blueberry streusel muffins. The addition of the brown sugary goodness of a streusel topping puts these muffins in a league of their own. Fortunately, owners Brian and Kim have been very generous in sharing their recipes so you don’t have to fly to Boulder to enjoy one of these muffins. The recipe is simple and you’ll be able to enjoy an world-class bakery goodie in your own kitchen. Full recipe after the jump!
