Sunday Sweets #31 Blueberry Muffins

I do love a good blueberry muffin.  Second choice would be raspberry (they had sold out of raspberries in Sainsburys though so they weren't even an option come baking!) I did once enjoy a very scrummy ginger muffin but they are few and far between.  Forget chocolate or anything with dried fruit in, they just don't work for me.  The best bit about this recipe is you can make whatever flavour takes your fancy and the base of the recipe stays the same.  I like to tell myself that muffins are not a cake and therefore are totally acceptable breakfast food...

250g self raising flour
145g caster sugar
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
85g melted butter
2 large eggs
200ml milk


Preheat the oven to 200c  /  fan 180  /  gas 6

Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and the wet together in a jug

Pour the wet in to the dry and combine

Add your choice of flavouring, I used 200g blueberries

Pour the mixture in to muffin case.  I added a big spoon of mix, then a teaspoon of blueberry jam in the centre followed by another big spoon of mix

Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden and a skewer comes out clean

Turn out onto a cooling rack to cool.

I couldn't wait for them too cool, they are yummy fresh out of the oven too.  Just be careful not to burn your lip on that jam!



  1. Oh yummy yum! Think I'll give these a go... did you buy the muffin cases or make them with greaseproof paper? Looks great! x

  2. Blueberry muffins are my favourite and these look delicious!
