How to make bakery-style blueberry muffins
These muffins couldn’t be easier to make! Simply mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add in the wet ingredients and a flaxseed egg. The flaxseed egg is key here for acting as a binding agent in our muffins.
Then we’ll stir through some fresh or frozen blueberries to complete the batter. How pretty does it look?
Finally, decant the mixture into muffin cases and bake for 18-25 minutes or until golden brown and domed on top. Then enjoy with a cup of hot masala chai. YUM.
Notes on this recipe
- Don’t overmix the batter. It’s been said that muffins only need to be stirred 40 times – make sure you don’t overmix the batter or you’ll overwork the gluten.
- Don’t open the oven during the first 15 minutes of cooking. This can cause your muffins to dip in the middle which is not cool.
- Make extras! Because if your family is anything like mine, they’ll be gone in minutes.
Yes! Simply swap out the caster sugar for date or coconut sugar.
Yes, you can use fresh or frozen blueberries in muffins.
I have tested this myself however it should work fine.
