Blueberry muffin recipe
Finding the right blueberry muffins that are perfect in a sense might not be that easy to find as many of them turn out to be too sugary or dry because of how they are baked. However, with the right blueberry muffin recipe the results will be talked about after the tea session with friends or family. These muffins can be also be made excluding some ingredients so that individuals who have been advised not to eat some foods such as sugar will still be able to enjoy them. This recipe makes a dozen to sixteen blue berry muffins.
1 ½ cup blueberries
½ table spoon baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel /vanilla (optional)
1 ½ cup of plain yoghurt/milk
10 tbsp unsalted butter/ margarine
2 eggs (large)
- Preheat oven between 380 degrees to 400 degrees. The oven rack that is to be used to place the muffin tray should be placed in between the middle and lower part of the oven.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda together in a bowl that is of an appropriate size and then set the bowl aside.
- In another bowl, mix the butter, yoghurt or milk and sugar which is then beaten until the mixture begins to look fluffy. The eggs are also part of this mixture but they are to be added one after another, with the whisking being continuous until they are properly incorporated. To enhance the flavor the lemon peel that has been grated should be added onto the mixture.
- Place the first half of the dry ingredients in the bowl with the mixture and add part of the yoghurt and whisk the mixture and the ingredients are incorporated. Next, add the second half of the ingredients that are dry as well as the yoghurt that was left and make sure they are also incorporated well.
- Add the blueberries into the mixture, but in case the blue berries were frozen they need to be defrosted and coated lightly with flour before being put into the mixture. When the mixture is well done, place it aside.
- The muffin tray that is to be used for baking should be cleaned and dried well before the individual tins are greased. The greasing is done using the butter or even margarine as preferred to prevent the mixture from sticking to the muffin tin. The mixture is then placed in each of the tin cups in appropriate amounts.
The amount of time taken for the blueberry muffins to be ready is approximately half an hour less, but if the muffins are much bigger in size they could take up to forty five minutes. As soon as the muffins turn brown, test them using a bamboo skewer to make sure the middle is well done. Allow them to cool before serving with a preferred toppings.
