Blueberry Muffins

I had blueberries in the fridge and my first thought was to make blueberry muffins. I am always on the lookout for quick, easy and delicious recipes; so here is one that I randomly tried, and it turned out really well.

Some muffins tend to be dry, but these are soft and moist, and I am sure you will love them. If you like blueberries like me, do give these a try.

DRY INGREDIENTS

  • All-purpose flour – 375 gm
  • Baking powder – 3 tsp 
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp 
  • Sugar – 220 g
  • Salt – 1/4 tsp 

WET INGREDIENTS

  • Buttermilk – 250 ml
  • Unsalted butter (melted) – 60g
  • Vegetable oil – 4 tbsp (80 ml) 
  • Large eggs – 2 at room temperature, lightly whisked
  • Vanilla extract – 2 tsp 
  • Blueberries – 250g, fresh  

Method

  • Preheat oven to 200°C and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper patties.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk buttermilk, melted butter, oil, eggs and vanilla.
  • Make a well in the flour bowl, pour in egg mixture. Mix until just combine – try not to stir more than 8 times. Some flour lumps in the batter is fine.
  • Stir through most of the blueberries – reserve some for topping.
  • Divide batter between paper cases. Top with remaining blueberries.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, then turn down to 180°C. Bake for a further 13 minutes (fan forced / convection) or 15 minutes (standard ovens), or until a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
  • Remove muffins from the muffin tin immediately onto a cooling rack.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
