Helloooooo, my friends!
I have the most delicious muffin recipe to share with you today! But first, story time!
I’m not the greatest baker so I always try to find tips and hacks on how to be better. Honestly, its all practice. Or sometimes, luck. I remember once I was so inspired to bake that I even wanted to aspire and become a pastry chef. Though I’m just an amateur and that idea quickly died. Lol.
Anyway, baking is fun to do when there’s no time limit and if its possible to get it done ASAP!! So, here’s how my muffins became reality. The other day I went to the market and saw these delicious blueberries. I figured I would make some blueberry pancakes for my daughter, but she’s so picky I immediately realized as I got home that she doesn’t care for berries in her food…. 😦
So, I incorporated my berries into my oatmeal and I immediately had a craving for blueberry muffins. Like the muffins, you purchase at the market…
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
3/4 granulated sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/3 of vegetable oil, or whichever oil you like!
1/2 cup of milk, or whichever dairy and non-dairy you like!
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
8 ounces of blueberries, fresh or frozen (if you use frozen ones do not thaw them!)
3 ripe bananas
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. While the oven heats just put together the liner cups on your muffin pan.
In a bowl put together the dry ingredients and whisk. Flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Be sure to not have any little lumps and everything is mixed well. I like to stir the batter until it looks sifted.
In another bowl, preferably a mixing bowl with a measurement if you don’t have one you can incorporate the ingredients into the bowl. Mash the banana then add the milk, egg, oil, and vanilla. Then whisk together until they’re fully combined.
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk slowly. Make sure that you don’t over mix and if the batter is runny add flour until the batter consistency turns think. Finally, fold in the blueberries!
Fill your paper liners up to the middle or to the top! That step is totally optional for you! Also, I sprinkled some sugar on top of the muffins to give it some shimmer though that’s also optional! And bake 15- 20 mins.
Woohoo… Now when you’re muffins are ready to let them cool off! Enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack… They taste best with a cup of coffee!
I hope you’re just as excited as I was. Thanks for letting me share this recipe!
