QUICK AND EASY BLUEBERRY MUFFINS​

By Amy // Posted Nov 10, 2020 // Category Cupcakes

Back in my uni days, I used to be a barista. The cafe I used to work at had a fantastic baker. These blueberry muffins really remind me of the baker there that used to make them. She used to top her blueberry muffins with brown sugar, that’s why I do the same with mine.

As you can see in the title, they’re really quick and easy to make. In fact, you don’t need an electric mixer or standmixer. You just prepare the wet and dry ingredients and mix them together.

It’s a real no-brainer, low effort recipe, which is fantastic! 

It’s moist but still nicely crumbly, not too sweet and the blueberries provide a nice tarty sweetness to each bite. Also, the sugar on top adds a nice crunch.

Blueberry muffins on a white plate

1. Frozen or fresh blueberries

In the photo you see of my muffins, I’ve used frozen blueberries. They taste just as good as fresh ones, so you can use whichever. If you use frozen ones, make sure you fold them into the batter and bake your muffins as quickly as possible. Don’t let it sit on the counter.

2. You can change the size of the muffins

I baked 8 muffins that are of a good size. If you wanted to, you can make smaller muffins as well. Let’s say you bake mini muffins, check the muffins after baking for 1o minutes. Insert a skewer and see if it comes out clean with a few crumbs. Then it is ready.

3. Customise your toppings

If you don’t want to sprinkle sugar on top, change it to something else. I think some chocolate chips or almond flakes would look good and taste great as well. See what combinations work for you.
