beyonce’s blueberry muffins

When R&B star Beyonce was in Auckland she asked for a batch of these everyday and even flew out with a few back to the US – who doesn’t love a blueberry muffin?

 

ingredients

We tested this recipe and used Champion self raising flour and 1 tsp baking powder. Also these make a deliciously cake like muffin – no need to butter!

 

2 cups self raising flour

1 Tsp baking powder

¾ cup brown sugar (not tight packed)

¾ cup melted butter (cooled)

2 large eggs

¾ cup milk

2 cups blueberries

 

 

directions

 

Sift the flour and baking powder, add sugar.

In another bowl combine the melted (cooled) butter, eggs and milk.  Blend with a fork.  Add to dry ingredients with the blueberries.

Bake 200 deg C for 15 minutes.

If you prefer fan bake 200 deg C fan bake for 10 minutes then turn off fan and bake at 200 deg C for another 5-8 minutes.

* Dusting with icing sugar looks great.

** If you use frozen berries it will take longer to bake.  Keep an eye on them as fruit muffins go from perfectly cooked to over-done in a very short time at this temperature.

 

COOKS TIPS

* Don’t panic – whether it be a mega star or the neighbour wanting hot muffins – they are simple to get right.

* Get the oven preheated – you want a good HOT oven and fan bake works well.

* Use good flour like Champion rather than generic house brand flour.  Sift the flour.

* Once the wet ingredients are added to the dry do not over mix.

* Rather than using paper liners for the muffins tins – just grease well and sprinkle with a little flour – you get a better texture.
