Well, there I was basking in the sunshine and then we had torrential rain and floods. I’ve never seen anything like it. Despite that, I did manage to get some baking done so I wanted to share with you my recipe for lovely blueberry muffins! I hope you enjoy!
110g plain flour
110g butter – preferably soft so it’s easier to mix
65g caster sugar
1 1/2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp of vanilla
125g blueberries – fresh or frozen.
Firstly, pre heat your oven to 180 degrees (fan). We need the oven at the right temperature to assure an even bake.
Cream the butter and sugar together until it is combined.
Slowly add the eggs and mix for three minutes. Slow is key here otherwise the mix could split.
Add the baking powder and vanilla to the batter and continue to mix.
Add the blueberries. It’s up to you how you want to add them. I prefer to add to the mix and stir very gently. You don’t want to break the fruit and make the batter blueberry coloured! Or, you could put the mix in the muffin cases and then add the blueberries on top. It’s entirely up to you!
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
I hope you’re all safe and well. Happy reading and happy cake eating!!
