These blueberry muffins are one of our favourite bakes. They are easy to make, light and fluffy and with the addition of blueberries, they're not too sweet.

Ingredients

  • 250 g Self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g butter softened
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 175 g blueberries
  • 2 large eggs
  • 250 ml milk

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180C/170C Fan/350F and grease or line your muffin tin with cases

    Measure the dry ingredients

    • Measure the flour and baking powder, into a large mixing bowl. Toss everything together so the fruit is well coated in the flour. This should help stop it sink to the bottom of the muffin when it cooks.
    • Measure the butter and chop it into small pieces. Then use your fingertips to rub the butter into your flour until your mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

    Add the sugar and blueberries

    • Weigh the sugar and blueberries and add them to your flour mixture.
    • Toss everything together so the fruit is well coated in the flour. This should help stop it sink to the bottom of the muffin when it cooks.

    Mix the wet ingredients

    • Measure the milk into a jug and add the eggs, one at time, beating well between each addition.

    Mix everything together

    • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and  stir everything together. Don’t overmix at this point – it’s ok if the mixture is a little lumpy, just make sure the flour is stirred in and not hiding at the bottom.

    Make the blueberry muffins

    • Spoon the muffin mixture into the muffin tin, dividing it equally among the cases.

    Bake the muffins

    • Bake the muffins in the oven for 20-25 minutes. They’re ready when they’ve risen, turned golden and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
    • Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes. Remove the blueberry muffins from tin and put on a wire rack until they are totally cool.
