Recipe of the Month: Blueberry Muffins – May 2023

Makes 12 muffins

You will need…

  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 level teaspoon baking powder
  • 50g softened butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 175g blueberries
  • Grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 250ml milk

Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6.

Place 12 muffin cases into a 12-hole muffin tin.

Mix the flour, baking powder and button in a large bowl, rubbing with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Stir in the sugar, blueberries and lemon rind.

Mix together the eggs and milk, and then pour them into the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix all the ingredients together until you have a lumpy consistency.

Divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes until well-risen, golden and firm to the touch.

Leave to cool for a few minutes before touching.
