Bursting blueberry muffins

Hey everyone – guess what? I have once again been baking… I seem to be on a roll right now! (No pun intended – but I have actually baked pumpkin rolls before if you want to check out the recipe here)

Anyway, recently I have found myself frequently spending my lunch money on these delicious blueberry muffins in my canteen, which I figured isn’t the wisest decision, so I thought to myself – why not make my own?

And that’s what I did! I really do love sharing recipes that I create with you, so if you ever do try any of them, please share your results with me.

You will need:

100g of butter

140g of golden caster sugar

2 eggs

140g of Greek-style yoghurt

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

2 tablespoons of milk

250g of plain flour

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 teaspoon of baking soda

125g of blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Firstly, preheat the oven to 180°c (fan assisted) and line a baking tray with 12 muffin cases (I just used bun cases but would recommend using bigger ones)

Use an electric mixer or hand whisk to mix together the butter and sugar until it’s fluffy.

Add the eggs and beat again until thoroughly mixed, for approximately one minute.

Next, add the yoghurt, vanilla extract and milk, mixing again until smooth.

Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix well once more.

Finally, fold in the blueberries. Be careful not to crush them so make sure to be gentle and don’t use a whisk for this step.

Once your mixture looks something like the above photo, spoon it into your muffin cases.

Put the muffins into the oven for 5 minutes and then turn down the heat to 160°c, cooking for another 15 minutes; or until you can stick a knife through the centre and it comes out clean.

And that’s all there is to it! The finished product got positive reviews all-round, so if you love a blueberry muffin, I definitely recommend this recipe!

For an extra bit of ‘something’, add a little brown sugar on top of your muffins before putting them into the oven.
