TREAT OF THE WEEK
This week we've been baking Blueberry Muffins, a favourite with everyone! This recipe is taken from the 'Your Recipes' section of Delia Online, posted by Krish. Very simple recipe and delicious muffins, enjoy! Ingredients For the muffin batter: 3 oz butter 6 tbsp whole milk 1 large egg 1 large egg yolk ¾ tsp vanilla extract 8 oz plain flour 6 oz sugar 1½ tsp baking powder ¾ tsp salt 14 oz blueberries For the topping: 1½ oz butter cut into ½ inch cubes 2½ oz plain flour 3 ½ tbsp sugar Method 1) Place the shelf in the top half of the oven and pre-heat to 190°C. 2) Melt the butter on a moderate-low heat, remove from heat and whisk in the egg, yolk, milk and vanilla until well combined. 3) Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. 4) Add the egg, milk and vanilla mixture and mix until combined. 5) Gently, but thoroughly, fold in the berries. 6) Divide the mixture into 6 greased muffin cases. 7) Rub together the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the batter. 8) Bake until golden and crisp (and until a wooden cocktail stick comes out clean) – approximately 18 to 20 minutes. 9) Cool for 15 minutes, scrape a knife around the cases and carefully remove the muffins.
