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)
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.
