Blueberry Muffins

29 Jan

When you’re home on a Saturday evening, it’s cold outside, snowing and you feel warm and cosy to stay home, what would you do? I, personally think of cooking a meal or baking something sweet. The heated oven, the good smell that enrich the house. We had some blueberries, so I thought, instead of eating them plain, which is also very delicious, I try them in a baked sweet. I looked up the net and found that amazing recipe, courtesy of Martha Stewart’s website. The muffins turned out having the exact fluffiness and tenderness I wanted them to be. I adapted a little bit the recipe, which calls for a certain topping or just a sprinkle of sugar and mace; I opted for the sprinkle to which I added some cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg instead of the mace. And that sprinkle gave a certain crust to the muffin which was perfect, delicious and added a flavour to the blueberries. Try it out and tell me what you think. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or an infusion of fresh ginger, cinnamon stick and anise seeds.

Blueberry Muffins

21 Jan

What is best than take some time to bake sweets on a saturday. Staying home, mixing and baking. I had some leftovers of frozen blueberries. I have tried some once on the morning of Christmas Day with pancakes. Were delicious. And these muffins are also very yummii. Soft and fluffy. I have mixed 150 g flour, 50 g golden caster sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder with a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Then mix in 1 beaten egg and 50 ml vegetable oil, and 100 ml milk. Then add the blueberries. Pour the batter into the muffin tins and bake the muffins in a pre-heated 200 C oven for 25 minutes. Cool and enjoy with a cup of hot coffee.
