Crusty blueberry and cinnammon muffins!

31 Mar

These blueberry muffins are gorgeous, and of course I had to put my own spin on them!

Recipe:

1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

1 cup fresh blueberries

For topping:

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup butter, cubed – I used 1/2

1 & 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

– I also added white chocolate chips to make this really sinful!

Directions

  1. Combine all dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  2. Place vegetable oil into a measuring cup; add the egg and milk .
  3. Add this to flour mixture.
  4. Fold in blueberries.
  5. Fill muffin cups right to the top
  6. To Make Topping: Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Mix and sprinkle over muffins before baking. Add choc chips if desired! I actually made more of a paste with this, rolled it into balls and flattened it over the cake mixture.
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.Makes about 10.

These are a gorgeous teatime treat and will keep visitors coming back for more!

PS: recipe from AllRecipes and tweaked by me!

Blogging my food journey

29 Mar

Every good food website should (in my opinion) have a food blog! So I will start to blog my way through my food journey here! As you know I love to bake, put my own spin on things and set myself new challenges!

So, here’s my “To Bake” list:

  • Cake Pops
  • Millionaire Shortbread
  • Monkey bread
  • Chocolate/peanut butter cupcakes
  • Macaroons (of the french not kosher variety!)
  • The perfect loaf of bread (without a breadmaker)
  • Oat and syrup scones

What else would you like to see me bake? I will be adding pictures and posts over the coming days…
