  7. Wow, that’s awesome, you’re making me crave blueberry muffins and I just ate! I was so impressed to see that you’re using all natural ingredients and no ‘low-fat’ chemical crap like aspartame or artificial shortening, etc.

    Nice work!

  8. hey there!
    try these muffins

    INGREDIENTS
    2 cups Flour
    4 teaspoons Baking Powder
    1 teaspoon Cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon Salt
    1/2 cup Caster Sugar
    100 grams Melted Butter
    1 cup Milk
    1 Egg, lightly beaten
    2 cups Frozen Mixed Berries
    2 teaspoons Cinnamon (optional)
    2 tablespoons Demerara Sugar (optional)

    INSTRUCTIONS
    Sieve all dry ingredients into a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients, excluding the frozen berries, together with a wooden spoon. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Gently mix in the frozen berries, making sure you do not over-mix. It doesn’t matter if some of the dry ingredients aren’t quite stirred through. Either grease a texas muffin tin (capacity 6) or place muffin cases into tin and drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the tin and sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar topping (if desired). Cook in a 200C oven (180C fan-forced) for 15-20 minutes. Test with a skewer to ensure muffins are cooked.
