Blueberry Muffins

You know that Spring is arriving when you go to the grocery shop and see blueberries available! I’ve been waiting for them all winter, and somehow even the preserved canned blueberries had disappeared from the shelves.

You can imagine my surprise and sheer joy when I walked into the vegetable store today and saw them shining brightly, prettily packaged in neat transparent little boxes, waving and calling out to me, as their purple heads bobbed up and down in happiness.

Ah… the beauty of Spring and its gift of fresh fruits, the inevitable burst of colours and lightheartedness.

Without any hesitation, I bought these little berries of joy, clutching my purchase with complete delight. I walked home fast, focused on just one goal – I was going to make beautiful blueberry muffins! And, not just any blueberry muffins – but those that you find in Starbucks.

    How come the muffins wont crack on the top whereas my muffins will? How did you fill the muffin mix? with spoon? with piping?

  4. Muffins usually crack because of the way self-raising flour works. (it’s common for any cake made of self-raising flour to crack at the top – thats characteristic). Mine probably didnt crack because i didnt bake them that long (the cakes usually crack after more than 25 – 30 minutes in the oven, and if they are cooked before that time it will not crack,

    I filled muffin mix with a tablespoon. dropping bit by bit.

    All the best!
