      unsalted butter, softened
    • 1   teaspoon 
    • 1   
      large egg
    • 3/4  cup 
    • 1   tablespoon 
      unsalted butter, melted
    • 1   cup 
      sour cream, (rounded )
    • 1   teaspoon 
      pure vanilla extract
    • 3/4  teaspoon 
      finely grated lemon zest
    • 1   cup 
      frozen blueberries, (rounded )
    • 1 1/2  cups 
      plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    • 2   teaspoons 
      baking powder
    • 1/4  teaspoon 
      baking soda
    • 1/2  teaspoon 
    Make the Topping:

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees . In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon. Rub with your fingers to form coarse crumbs. Refrigerate until ready to use.
    Make the Muffins:

    Butter a 12-cup muffin pan. In a medium bowl, whisk the 1 1/2 cups of flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the egg at medium speed until frothy. Add the sugar and melted butter and beat until pale yellow, 1 minute. Beat in the sour cream, vanilla and lemon zest until blended. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until almost blended. In a bowl, toss the blueberries with the remaining 1 tablespoon of flour. Using a rubber spatula, fold the blueberries into the batter.
    Fill the muffin cups three-fourths full of batter and sprinkle with the topping. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the pan and let cool on a rack.
    Make Ahead:

    The muffins can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
