The other day I was meeting up with a friend for a coffee, but the same second I was planning on leaving the house, some construction workers rang the door bell… So, I invited my friend over instead and after some catching up, we decided to bake blueberry muffins!
As it is season for blueberries, we got some fresh from a little stand just around the corner from our flat. Hope you will enjoy the recipe…
Blueberry muffins, makes 12.
100g butter (as in real butter, no margarine, goes without saying)
2 dl milk (no non-fat crap)
4 dl flour
2 tsp baking powder
Turn on the oven for 175 degrees (abt 350F) and fill a muffin pan with paper baking cups.
Crack the eggs in a mixing bowl and and the sugar. Whisk until its thick and creamy, it is slightly easier with a mixer.
In a small pot, melt the butter and then add the milk into the pot. Stir in the milk/butter to the egg mixture. Note that you should stir it, not mix/whisk!
In a different bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and vanilla and then slowly poor it into the mixture. Make sure it’s well mixed before you pour the mixture in the muffin pan. Try and fill about 3/4 of the cup. Then pop a few blueberries in each muffin, and give them a slight push down into the batter. If you mix the blueberries in the batter, you’ll end up with grey batter – not that appetising..
Bake for ca 12-15 minutes, keep an eye on them, they should be light golden. Let them cool for as long as you can (10 sec!) and then enjoy! ps! of course you can add a different berry for these muffins, or mix it up with cacao or chocolate chips!
