Super Easy Blueberry Muffins

27 October 2010, 03:23

I ♥ blueberry muffins. But they gotta be packed full of sweet, juicy blueberries or the muffin is deemed as fail which is what I experienced last week when I went hunting for a decent blueberry muffin in the central station area. A call out to both twitter and facebook peeps wasn’t promising and so I ended up baking these babies with a bit of tweaking of Exclusively Food’s recipe. Go forth and bake my friends! Oh and if you double the recipe you might want to use a stand mixer to mix or your arms will get tired. The crazy pink background is for Pinktober- support breast cancer awareness month yo!

1 carton (300g) sour cream
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp milk
55g butter, melted
2 cups self-raising flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat (fan forced) oven to 170C. Mix 1 carton sour cream, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1 tsp vanilla extract in a large bowl.

Sift 2 cups self raising flour in same bowl

Add in the 2 cups of blueberries and toss them a bit in the flour

Add the 55g melted butter, 3 Tbsp milk and stir until mixture is just combined.

Divide mixture into muffin cases. Bake for 20-25mins.

Nawww mini muffins are so cute! Yeah couldn’t resist sneaking one to eat before taking a photo haha

Here, have a gander at my muffin innards. Packed full of blueberries oh yes

I’ve always wanted a bucket of muffins.

  6. Yum, they look so good Suze! A blueberry muffin with 2 pitiful blueberries is NOT right.

  7. These look delish. I love how once you’ve added the blueberries, the whole batter is purple – looks like yoghurt.

  10. Oooooh your little bucket is too cute! I love muffins, especially blueberry ones, but yeah it totally sucks when you buy one that has like 2 blueberries and is dry as a bone :( homemade is always the best!

  12. My little boy loves blueberries, I’m gonna give this a go! I wonder if I can reduce the amount of sugar though – I don’t want him to jump around on a sugar high :-)

  14. Did you fold baking paper to fit into the muffins tins or buy them that way? I like the cafe style look :D

  17. Sometimes commercial muffins LIE by only having berries in the top :(

  18. Seriously what is a blueberry muffin without a lot of blueberries. I saw your tweets. I felt your rage over that muffin you purchased. Your recipe is simple and has tonnes of blueberries. I’ll be taking these to work to share with the girls.

  19. Hey Suze, do you always use long life milk? Have I not noticed before? Is it better than normal full cream milk/buttermilk?

  27. I’m quite fussy with my blueberry muffins – sometimes they can be really disappointing – these look awesome though, I can imagine they must have smelt and tasted AWESOME straight out of the oven :)
