Quick & Simple fruit muffins!

I like the idea of baking, but when it gets round to it I always put it off! (sometimes it's just to faffy and I HATE the cleaning up!!) But this morning I had a few spare hours so got stuck in. My dad brought home some blueberries yesterday so I thought muffins would be ideal! They actually turned out ok bearing in mind I haven't baked since school. 
Here's the recipe if you want to make some muffins in no time at all!

You will need:
  • 300g Plain flour
  • 3 Teaspoons of baking powder
  • 115g Caster sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 300ml Milk
  • 85ml Sunflower oil
  • Fruit - Obviously I used blueberries but you could use any fresh fruit (brambles, raspberries,)
  • 12 Muffin cases 



 1. Set oven to 180 or gas 6
2. Grease inside the paper cases , I just dipped my
 brush into the oil I had already measured out
 3.In a large mixing bowl, sieve the flour and baking powder.
    Then add in the sugar.


 4. In a smaller bowl mix the oil, egg and milk together using a fork.

5. Add to the flour mixture all at once and beat until smooth.



 6. Stir in your chosen fruit
 7. Divide the mixture evenly between the cases. I then sprinkled an extra little bit of brown sugar on the top to add a bit of crunch.
 8. Bake in the oven for 25-30 mins or until golden brown.

 9. Leave to cool for a few mins in the tin, then place the muffins on a cooling rack.











Hope this inspires some of you to get back into baking! Let me know if you try the recipe, perhaps you will use different fillings? 

Thanks for reading!
