Big Beautiful Blueberry Muffins

What do you do to relieve stress?

I like to:

  • listen to music
  • read (cookbooks)
  • draw/doodle
  • make crafts
  • take pictures
  • hike
  • yoga
  • watch movies
  • and last but not least, BAKE!

I decided to bake this weekend because it has been one heck of a busy week. Plus, I haven’t had blueberry muffins in forever! These muffins taste out of the world, but are surprisingly simple to make!

Ingredients:

500mL white all-purpose flour
20mL baking powder
2mL salt
125mL sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 large egg
250mL 2% milk
80mL oil
250mL frozen blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line muffin pans with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg, oil, and milk.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and pour the liquids into the well. Mix until dry ingredients have almost disappeared.
  5. Fold in frozen blueberries. Do not over mix!
  6. Scoop batter into 12 paper liners until they are 3/4 full.
  7. Evenly top 12 muffins with the 2 tablespoons of sugar. (1/2 teaspoon each)
  8. Bake for 20 minutes until muffins are golden in colour and spring back when lightly pressed.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  1. I loved watching the top seven compete on MasterChef. I was kinda bummed that someone I liked went home. (That’s all I’m going to say; I don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t watched it yet!)
  2. I went to the Heritage Festival today with my family! Incredible performances by a multitude of cultures + delicious food. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures to share because I devoured the food before I even had the chance to snap a few shots. 😦
