Blueberry muffins easy recipe, super fluffy, deliciously golden and healthy too.
Blueberry muffins easy recipeIt really does not matter what time of the day it is, and you don’t need any excuses, just grab a few of these blueberry muffins and enjoy your day. Great for breakfast or snack time, and if you have a cup of tea or coffee with them, it’s even better.
Why are they the best? Because the taste is just right, not too sweet, but not too boring either. The quantities listed below make 12 muffins, but trust me, one batch won’t be enough, they are that good.
What l love about muffins is the endless ways of making them, anything can go in, fresh or dried fruit, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips. Or keep them plain, they will still taste as good. They can be stored in an airtight container and will keep fresh for a few days.
Nicer weather soon, hopefully, and they will be the first to go in my picnic basket, no cream to worry about. Have l mentioned that all you have to do is mix all ingredients together? How simple, isn’t it. It only takes 25 minutes to make them, including the baking time. Now, that’s what I call a quick recipe.
Kids love them too, they are fun to make together and they are a way healthier snack than just crisps or candies. If you do prefer them sweeter, feel free to add more sugar, but they really need no more. Especially if you choose to have them with a drink.
Blueberries are naturally low in sugar, in fact all berries are very good if you worry that some fruit are too high in naturally occurring sugar. They are at their best in summer, but supermarkets sell them all year round. You can add some nuts or seeds too if you like to up the nutritional value.
One thing l used to struggle when l was making muffins was the shape. It was never round, and the muffins were not rising the way l wanted. What helps is maxing as little as possible when incorporating the dry and wet ingredients. Don’t worry about a perfectly smooth batter, a few lumps are fine, they will bake nicely anyway.
And make sure the ingredients are at room temperature and the oven is well pre-heated, so they can rise quickly. I increased the oven temperature to 200 degrees Celsius (390 Fahrenheit) for the same reason. It really helped achieving the results l was after.
