Sometimes I crave muffins (freshly baked ones), however, I procrastinate a lot of times to bake them because I have a generous hand, as I tend to cook and bake for more than I need and intended. So today when I woke up in the morning, muffins were the first thing that popped up in my head when I thought of breakfast, and this gave me an opportunity to actually test the recipe I’ve been working on for a small batch. I intended for the recipe to make only 6 muffins, but it ended up being 7 in total, and I’m not complaining because the odd one completed my photography creativity. I must say, I’m relatively proud of myself for this achievement, my whole week boiled down to this moment (of course, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you get what I mean). if you are like me and dread wasting anything, this recipe is for you – I hope you enjoy it.

INGREDIENTS

120g Cake Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

75g White Sugar

Pinch of Salt

1 Extra Large Egg

70ml Canola oil

65m Milk

1 Teaspoon Zest of Orange

75g fresh blueberries

1 Teaspoon Vanilla essence

Softened Butter and Flour (to grease and coat the pan)

 

 

METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to 180℃.
  2. Sieve flour into a small bowl, add baking powder and pinch of salt. Mix well and set aside
  3. Use a teaspoon of the flour mixture to coat the blueberries, set aside.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl combine the oil, milk and sugar. Whisk together until combined and then add the egg, vanilla essence and orange zest. Whisk until combined.
  5. Whisk in the flour mixture into the wet one and whisk until combined. Then gently fold the blueberries using a spatula (with its flour). Try to not over mix.
  6. Put the batter aside. Grease a muffin pan with the softened butter using a brush (pastry brush). Then coat it with flour. Or you can skip all these steps and use a muffin case.
  7. Scoop out the muffin batter with an ice cream scoop (or a tablespoon) to fill the pan.IMG_1952
  8. Bake at 200 for 10 minutes then reduce the heat to 190 and continue to bake for 5 more minute or until golden brown and a toothpick comes clean when inserted.
