So Good… So Fresh, Ready in Minutes!
We have had such wonderful weather in the last two days, there is really nothing to whine about. And anyway, as I said a little while back, these days I carry my weather with me, and I try to think ‘in orange’, the color of enthusiasm, fascination, and happiness.
I hope your weekend has been great so far, and I hope the rest of it will go as per your plans. If you have been following this blog, you should have realised by now, that I love cooking with blueberries. I love them because you can use them in pies, waffles, salads, crepes, smoothies, and today I learnt that you can even make blueberry soup, not chilled, but warm blueberry soup. The recipe is Scandinavian. Isn’t that awesome?
Thousands of research done in the past decade, confirm the importance of eating a diet filled with flavonoids from a variety of brightly colored vegetables and fruits to help prevent and even treat many chronic illnesses. Oh yes, and eating more blueberries at an early age, may reduce the risk of heart attack later in life.
Today I want to share with you a recipe for blueberry muffins, I made two weeks ago. I didn’t use a lot of sugar, so if you prefer more sugar in your muffins just add a little more to suit your palate. I wanted to taste the blueberries, not the sugar, so I reduced mine. I really enjoyed eating the muffins as you can see here….
I want to thank you so much for visiting my blog and for reading this far… now for the recipe,
Preparation Time: 16 minutes; Baking Time: 20-25 minutes; Makes: 12 larger muffins
- 375g (3 cups, 13oz) all-purpose flour (plain flour)
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 220g (1cup packed, 8oz) soft brown sugar
- 125g (½ cup + 1 tablespoon, 4½oz, 1 stick + 1 tablespoon) butter, melted
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 375ml (1½ cups, 12.6fl oz) milk
- 2 cups blueberries
- Preheat oven to 425°F (225°C). Line a 12-hole, large muffin tin (pan) with paper cases. (I didn’t the first time but it was not easy to remove the muffins)
- Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in sugar. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture.
- In another bowl, whisk the melted butter, eggs and milk. Add the egg mixture into the well and stir until just combined. Do not over mix. The mixture should look quite lumpy.
- Gently fold in the blueberries.
- Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cases. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden. Let stand for 5 minutes then, transfer onto wire rack to cool.
- For cup measures: spoon the flour into the cup, heaping it up over the top, then slide a knife across the top to level off the extra. Be careful not to shake or tap the cup to settle down the flour or you will have more than you need. I use a 240ml American cup.
Points to Note:
- Please note that oven temperatures are given as a guideline only. You may need to add or reduce the suggested temperature depending on your oven. I baked the muffins at 425°F (220°C) for 25 minutes.
- Please line up pan with paper cases for this recipe. Otherwise let the muffins stand in the tin for ten minutes before you loosen with a flat-bladed knife and carefully transfer to a wire rack. These muffins are delicate, so handle with care.

Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my bread post! — I thought you might be interested in this — I just found out that baking powder has aluminum, the metal, duh moment for me, but anyways, here is a fascinating article on it — http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/choosing-a-healthy-baking-powder/
Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving me a note. I read an article a while back on baking powder and aluminium and I use Magic Baking Powder and the manufacturer says it contains no aluminium that’s why I buy it. Thanks for leaving me a link on that. I appreciate.

Is there anything better than a freshly baked blueberry muffin?!! Yours baked up beautifully and I like that you reduced the amount of sugar. I’m thinking the sweetness from the blueberries would be enough. Love your step by step photos…really pretty.

Hi Sapana, Thank you for nominating me for the versatile blogger award, never heard of it, but will read more about it then link up with you as indicated above. Thank you for thinking about me.
These look amazing! A great recipe to try out over the Easter weekend!
Thank you for leaving me a note and thanks for the likes!. I was at you site too!!
This recipe is super timely. I just bought a small punnet of blueberries, wondering what I should do with it besides my usual lemon buttermilk cake. Muffins sound good. I think with some orange or lime zest in there, it would make the perfectest breakfast!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for having a conversation with me. I love orange and lime too, it always enhances the flavour of baked goods. If you do make the muffins, kindly give me a feedback. Wish you all the best in your cooking endeavour.
I love blueberries! I’ll definitely try out your recipe and thanks again for liking my lamb cake. Happy Easter!
