I am not a fruit lover but blueberry muffins will always have a place in me. It would have never crossed my mind to be making them myself, but when I saw how simple the recipe I thought one day I would try making them. Yes one day and after months I have only decided to try making it. Well Sainsbury had blueberry on discount so I thought why not, as I paid around £2 for one muffin at a shop the other day.
Within an hour you can have some blueberry muffins and I really do mean it take no more an hour to make them and get them in to the oven. As I made them very late in one evening knowing I only had a one hour limit to get these muffins done and be off to bed for work.
The original recipe asked for 200g of blueberries which to me is awfully a lot. But you can adjust it depending how much blueberries you like in your cake. The same with the sugar and butter, it can be adjusted depending on your taste – so experiment!
I have only made adjustment to the blueberries and keeping the sugar and butter the same which I thought tasted okay to me. But some who perfer it a bit sweeter will want to add more sugar. Well I do not have that much of a sweet tooth and it is all much healthier with less sugar and butter!
Maybe you can give the recipe a try and then let me know what you think!
My next batch I will try adding just a few more sugar to see what experience that gives me.
- 100g Self-rising flour
- 50g Caster Sugar (amount can be reduce or increase to your taste)
- 80g Butter (amount can be reduce or increase to your taste)
- 2 Egg
- 200g Blueberries
- Whisk the butter and sugar together, until creamy.
- Add the egg one by one.
- Add the sieved flour and mix.
- Add in the blueberries (leaving some to be used later for decoration), and fold it in to the mixture.
- Then pour the mixture into a muffin tin (I used silicone cupcakes cases instead).
- Then with the blueberries that were left aside you can add some on top.
- In a pre-heated oven bake the muffins in 200 degree Celsius for around 20-30 minutes.
- Let it cool before dusting the muffins with some icing sugar (This is optional, but I think it add an extra touch to the muffins).
