To make the muffin batter.
In a medium-size bowl, place the eggs, buttermilk, butter and vanilla, and mix until well-combined. Set the wet ingredients aside briefly.
In a large bowl, place the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, salt, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Whisk to combine and break up any lumps in the brown sugar.
Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the egg and buttermilk mixture. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Don’t overmix.
If adding any simple mix-ins like chocolate chips, add them to the batter now and mix just until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Divide the batter evenly among the prepared wells of the muffin tin, smooth the tops with wet fingers.
If you’re adding the crumble, remove the bowl from the refrigerator and break up the crumble into irregular pieces (none too large) with the tines of a fork.
Sprinkle the crumble generously on the top of the muffin batter in the wells, and press to adhere the mixture to the muffin batter.
Place the pan in the center of the preheated oven and bake until the top of the center muffin springs back when pressed gently in the center, about 20 minutes.
If you’ve added the crumble, those muffins may take another minute or so to bake fully. Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
