Sweet Melissa Sunday-Orange Blueberry Muffins with Pecan Crumble

Happy Sunday and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!! I have another recipe for Sweet Melissa Sunday...Orange Blueberry Muffins. I have to stop right there because I did not include the crumble on top. The night I baked these I ran out of brown sugar and had no pecans...so I couldn't make the crumble. But the muffins were pretty good regardless!


I substituted fresh blueberries for frozen. The lemon and orange zest in the recipe was fabulous, it really kicked the flavor up a notch. They were the best warm and fresh out of the oven!


Doesn't this one look like an eyeball looking at you??


I was a bit disappointed that they were not as good the next day. They were pretty dry and crumbly. But to be honest, not too many of them lastest past the first day. Muffins are a huge crowd pleaser in this house.

Thank you to Chaya from My Sweet and Savory for picking this recipe. Please check out all the other SMS Bakers to see what they did with this recipe. I hope all you Mom's have a great Mother's Day today!!!

Happy Mother's Day to you too! I added the pecan crumble this time but I think the muffins look terrific without it. I served the muffins at brunch today and they were a hit!

Happy (belated) Mother's Day, Mara!

Even without the crumble topping, your muffins look utterly delicious, including the one with the blueberry eyeball, haha! And I agree, muffins are definitely best still warm from the oven :)

Hope you're doing well, and look forward to hearing from you soon!

<3,

Muffins are always best warm out of the oven. That way it melts the butter :-)

Glad you and your family enjoyed them and hope you had a wonderful mother's day!
