Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins

I am delighted with how these Blueberry Muffins have turned out. They really are a delicious treat to be enjoyed with a cuppa when you can grab 5 minutes peace. As an aside, I'm quite pleased with the photograph too ! I never knew how difficult it was to capture in a photograph the aesthetics of cooking.

FOR THE TOPPING
40g Plain White Flour
13g Soft Brown Sugar
25g Unsalted Butter

1. Blend ingredients in a processor, or mix together using fingertips, until it resembles a crumble-type mixture

FOR THE MUFFINS
250g soft Unsalted Butter
200g superfine Caster Sugar
4 Eggs, and an Extra Yoke, lightly beaten
250g Plain White Flour, sifted
2 tsp Baking Powder, sifted
100g Blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 190C/375F (180C Fan Oven)
2. Beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy
3. Add the egg mixture a little at a time; beat well before adding more
4. Gently mix in the flour and baking powder; add the blueberries
5. Place muffin cases into muffin tin and divide the dough between them (I made 15 from the above ingredients)
6. Sprinke the topping mixture over the dough; cook for approx 20-25 min until golden brown
