Today I made blueberry muffins. As you know I always have trouble making them look good. They always taste amazing but they tend to look like a crash of some sort. This time was no different. First round I forgot to use the muffin tray and it ended up looking like one big flat cake on the baking tray with sort of a muffin-paper-cup-bottom. It was a horrible site. But then I remembered that I had forgotten to use the muffin-tray I had. So the next batch of muffins that went into the oven I managed to put the muffin-paper-cups into the muffin tray and even though they sort of got a little stuck to the tray on top they turned out a whole lot better than the first batch so I was more than happy, because they tasted really good and I wanted to share the recipe with y’all so I needed to be able to take a great photo of them. The photo luckily turned out better than expected. I’m sure that you are a much better muffin baker than I am, so hopefully, they will look great as well as taste great. Mine, on the other hand, tastes great but looks like a disaster.
1,5 Cup Sugar
2,5 Sticks Butter
2 Cups Flour
1,25 Cream milk
1 cup blueberries
1 stick vanilla
3 teaspoons baking powder
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add the butter and the sugar into a medium sized mixing bowl. Cut the vanilla stick in two lengthwise and add the seeds into the butter and sugar mix. Use a mixmaster or a kitchen machine to mix everything well together until you reach a creamy consistency.
- When the consistency is creamy and light; add in one egg at a time and mix it well together with a wooden spoon before adding in the next, keep doing this until all 4 eggs are well blended in with the mixture.
- Add in the flour and the baking powder, add in the creamy milk while stirring in the flour/baking powder.
- When you’ve reached a golden and light mixture add in the blueberries. Gently mix in the blueberries with the mixture so they don’t break. Use paper muffin cups and add them into your muffin tray. Add about 1 Teaspoon of the mixture into each cup. Cook them in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes.
I hope you love this recipe as much as we do, and I hope your muffins look amazing, but if they don’t give yourself a thumbs up because sometimes when it comes to baking, it’s all about the flavor and as long as it tastes good that’s all that really matters unless you’re having a dinner party. If you have some tips about how I can make my muffins look like muffins instead of a crash I would love to hair it, so please write me an e-mail or drop a comment down below and tell me all about it. of 14 muffins, six looked better than the rest which was perfectly fine for a photo-shoot.
I hope all of you are having an amazing day and I hope to see y’all back here tomorrow for a new post.
