Yield

Makes 30 cupcakes

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 egg whites
3 cups fresh or frozen (unthawed) blueberries
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup uncooked old-fashioned or quick oats
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 30 standard (2-1/2-inch) muffin pan cups or line with paper baking cups.
  2. For cupcakes, combine 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl; mix well. Set aside. Beat granulated sugar and 1/2 cup butter in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed 1 minute. Add milk and vanilla. Beat at low speed 30 seconds. Gradually beat in flour mixture; beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Add egg whites; beat 1 minute. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling 1/2 full. Spoon blueberries over batter. Bake 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile for streusel, combine 1/3 cup flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon in small bowl; mix well. Cut in 1/4 cup butter with pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chopped nuts.
  4. Sprinkle streusel over partially baked cupcakes. Return to oven; bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpicks inserted into centers come out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes to wire racks; cool completely. (Cupcakes may be frozen up to 3 months.)
