I've been making these blueberry muffins for years. They are the fluffiest blueberry muffins ever! The light texture and the sweetness makes them super kid friendly.
What is the trick for fluffy muffins?
- Buttermilk- this by-product of butter making is amazing! It helps to make muffins super fluffy- and therefore delicious.
- Don't over mix- one of the biggest mistakes you can make with muffins is over mixing.
- Don't over bake- as long as a skewer comes out clean- then these are ready!
Can I freeze these muffins?
Of course! But, I have to say, they are their best straight off the cooling rack and may lose some of their fluffiness in the freezer!
What equipment do I need?
- a whisk
- large bowl
- non stick muffin pan (or use liners!)
How do I make the muffins?
- Combine the sugar, flour and salt in a large bowl
- Put the wet ingredients: vanilla, buttermilk, eggs, butter into a jug and whisk together
- Gradually add the wet ingredients being careful to not overmix
- Fold in the blueberries
- Spoon into a muffin pan and sprinkle with a little caster sugar
- Bake for 22-25 minutes
To make the equivalent (although buttermilk is even better and quite cheap!) take:
one cup of milk
1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
Mix it together and leave to sit on the bench for 15 minutes.
