Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins are something I used to buy from cafes. They were delicious but would cost around $4 each. Using this recipe, I can make my own batch of 12 blueberry muffins for under the price of one cafe bought muffin. Sorry cafe muffins, I love you but these are too quick and easy to make for me to bother buying you anymore. The best bit is I can freeze these muffins and eat one whenever I like. They are perfect with a cup of tea for morning or afternoon tea (or as a sneaky breakfast on the go).

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe, however, I find that while the frozen berries still make delicious muffins the berries don’t always hold their shape as well as the fresh berries.

If you want to make muffins but don’t have any blueberries, you could try these other muffin recipes.
