Blueberry Muffin with Streusel topping

Little N loves blueberries. And no one wants to deprive her of them.  But recently A got more than she could possibly consume and I got into action .  The last time I made blueberry muffins was with chocolate chips. I was looking for something different and after looking at various recipes settled down to making muffins again. Muffins with a streusel topping.  This site -Whisk Affair has amazing pictures and the product looked very good.  I was not particularly taken in by what I read about the streusel topping;  It just seemed like sugar and fat and what would it do to the muffin ?  I was all wrong.  It does make a whole lot of difference... bake it and see for yourself.  Btw - streusel I am told in german means something scattered or sprinkled - very apt.

As usual the pics are a bit of a let down.  But don't go by them.  They were delicious.

All purpose flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - 3/4 tsp
Baking soda - 1/8 tsp
