Blueberry and Vanilla Muffins

Blueberry and Vanilla Muffins

Hopefully you have recovered 
from the excesses of 
Pancake or Shrove Tuesday.

We had a marathon pancake 
eating tea which was great

We all enjoyed covering the pancakes with 
various toppings and 
feeling somewhat sick

Childhood memories in the making.

Miss Bee managed a gut-busting
eight pancakes,
Mr. Bee in respectable five,
and me only four.

Little bee was not interested as 
they had made pancakes at
school that afternoon and was,
in his words,
"not a fan".

I had bought some lovely fresh 
raspberries and blueberries
as a choice of topping 
but seemed to
have ended up with 
quite a few left over.

I suspect the chocolate spread 
was a more popular choice.

So, not wanting to see the fruit 
go to waste I thought a nice, 
quick batch of muffins
was called for.

These are the easiest thing to make and are
very popular with everyone.

You will need :

250g plain flour
2 tsps baking powder
150g caster sugar
175ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
150ml sunflower oil
100g blueberries
2 tbsps of oats and brown sugar mixed together

1. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with 
some pretty paper cases,
and pre heat the oven to 180c / 160 c fan/ gas 4.

2. Put all of the ingredients 
except the blueberries and
the oats and sugar mix 
into a bowl or mixer.
Combine until all the ingredients 
have come together.

3. Fold in the blueberries.

The recipe calls for 100g of blueberries 
but I suspect I had a few 
more than that.

A few grams here or there will 
not spoil the mix
and it will not see any of your 
fruit going to waste.

4. divide up the mixture equally 
into the muffin cases.

I find an ice cream scoop 
very helpful for this.

Sprinkle with the oat and brown sugar topping mix
and place into the preheated oven 
for approx  30 minutes,

or until the tops are a lovely 
golden brown
and the blueberries will have 
probably burst and
those beautiful purple juices 
are running down the
sides of the cases.

Leave on a rack to cool.

These are delicious warm or cold
but fresh out of the oven,
they are just too good to resist.

They are such beautiful little treats 
of blue jewelled 

I'm sure my hungry lot will have t
hese demolished
as soon as they 
arrive home from school.

Have a lovely weekend and until
next time,
enjoy your day.
