Blueberry Muffin Recipe

To make classic blueberry muffins, you will need the following ingredients: 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, 1 egg, 1/3 cup of milk, and 1 cup of fresh blueberries. Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C) and lining a muffin tin with paper liners. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In another bowl, mix the vegetable oil, egg, and milk. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Gently fold in the blueberries. Fill the muffin cups about two-thirds full and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for a few minutes before serving.

Lemon Blueberry Muffin Recipe

For a slightly different twist, try lemon blueberry muffins. You will need similar ingredients as the classic recipe, with the addition of lemon zest and lemon juice. Follow the same steps as above, but add 1 tablespoon of lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to the wet ingredients. This will give your muffins a refreshing citrus flavour that pairs beautifully with the blueberries. These lemon blueberry muffins are perfect for a summer breakfast or brunch, offering a burst of tangy sweetness in every bite.
