Nutty blueberry muffins recipe

Ingredients

Method

Lightly grease a silicone muffin tray with oil spray, or line with paper cases. Put the flour and hazelnuts in a food processor, and whizz until the nuts are finely ground. Tip into a bowl and stir in the bicarbonate of soda. Whisk together the buttermilk, milk, eggs, agave and oil.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until smooth, then stir in the blueberries. Divide the mixture between the muffin holes and bake for 20 mins until a skewer poked in comes out clean. Leave to cool for 10 mins, before turning out of the tray. If freezing, defrost at room temperature, then warm through in the oven.

    Banana & blueberry muffins recipe

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases. Tip the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl. Hold back 1 tbsp of the sugar, then mix the remainder with the flour and 50g oats. Make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl, mash the bananas until nearly smooth. Stir the buttermilk, oil and egg whites into the mashed banana until evenly combined.
    2. Pour the liquid mixture into the well and stir quickly and sparingly with a wooden spoon. The mix will look lumpy and may have the odd fleck of flour still visible, but don’t be tempted to over-mix. Tip in the blueberries and give it just one more stir. Divide the mix between the muffin cases – they will be quite full – then sprinkle the tops with the final tbsp of the oats and the rest of he sugar. Bake for 18-20 mins until risen and dark golden. Cool for 5 mins in the tray before lifting out onto a rack to cool completely.

    The ultimate makeover: Blueberry muffins recipe

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Use 1 tsp oil to lightly oil a 12-hole muffin tin (or use paper cases). Mix both flours with the baking powder and lemon zest. Reserve 1 tbsp caster sugar, then stir the rest into the flour with the muscovado.
    2. Mash the banana well. In another bowl beat the egg, then stir in the banana, buttermilk and oil. Using a large metal spoon, very lightly stir into the flour mix, just to combine. Over-mixing will make the muffins tough. Toss in the blueberries and give just a few turns of the spoon to carefully stir them in without crushing.
    3. Spoon the mixture into the tin – each hole should be very full. Bake for 20-25 mins until risen and golden.
    4. Mix the reserved caster sugar with the lemon juice. When the muffins are done, remove from the oven, then brush with the sugar and lemon mixture while they are still hot. Gently loosen the edges of each muffin with a knife, then leave in the tin for 15 mins to cool a little as they’re very delicate while hot. Remove to a wire rack. Best eaten the day of making, but will keep for up to 2 days.

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Place the muffin cases in a muffin tray. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, bicarb, sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. Whisk the butter, buttermilk, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla extract in a jug. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and add most of the blueberries. Stir briefly to just combine, but don’t overmix or the muffins will be heavy.
    2. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases (use an ice cream scoop if you have one) and bake for 22-25 mins until well risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack.
    3. Mix the remaining maple syrup and the icing sugar together with a pinch of salt until smooth. Brush the icing over each muffin while they are still warm. Dot a few blueberries on top of each one. Best eaten within a day or two.
