how to make blueberry muffins

I love freshly baked muffins. LOVE. Them.

I’ve had a bit of muffin mania the past few months, making them at least once a week. I mix it up. I try new combos and flavours.

Here’s my latest batch: Blueberry Lemon Chocolate.

Easy Blueberry Muffins (with lemon and chocolate)

easy recipe for muffins

2 1/2 cups of self-raising flour

3/4 cup caster sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

lemon rind (as much as you can stand grating)

3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I use organic)

2/3 cup dark chocolate chips or broken melts

1/2 cup sunflower oil

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 tsp pure vanilla

1 cup yoghurt – use blueberry, vanilla or lemon- YUMMO

1/4 cup milk or lemon juice

Heat oven to 180. Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin with papers.

Combine the dry ingredients. Add the rind, blueberries and chocolate to the dry.

In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients.

Add wet to dry and mix only enough to combine the two. If it’s a bit too dry, add more yoghurt or a bit more milk.

WARNING: Do not add too much extra liquid. This mixture is meant to be very thick.

Spoon mixture into prepared muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depends on your oven. I always check them and turn the tray after 15 minutes.

Let cool in tray for 5 minutes before putting muffins on a cooling rack. Let them sit for 10-15 minutes before eating. If they’re too hot when you try to eat them, they’ll stick to the paper.

Enjoy with or without butter.
