I call muffins ‘mofns’ because I think it’s funnier. Also, it’s what I call my dear housemate/life partner Isabelle. I made these mofns in an attempt to cheer her up after her moron boyfriend broke up with her last week. She didn’t eat any of them in the end, turns out not everyone feels the need to binge-eat after a break up like I do… So I ate most of them on her behalf – I’m a good friend like that. The rest sadly went in the bin because I accidentally got drunk and left them out in the sun. So, not an overly successful baking experience but the mofns I did manage to eat, were very nice and relatively guilt-free – if you don’t slather them in butter like I do…
Lighter blueberry muffins (mofns)
Makes 12 / Takes 35 minutes / V ❄
You’ll need: 12 muffin cases, muffin tin, electric whisk
250g self-raising flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
50g light unsalted butter
75g caster sugar
1 Punnet blueberries
½ lemon, juiced
2 large eggs
235ml semi-skimmed milk
½ tsp sea salt flakes
1. Preheat oven to 160°C/140°C fan/325°F/gas mark 3.
2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add the butter and with your fingers rub it into breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and blueberries before putting to one side.
3. Whisk the eggs, milk and lemon juice together in a separate bow with an electric whisk. Add the wet mixture to the dry and fold until just combined – be careful not to over fold, the mixture can be a little lumpy.
3. Fill the 12 muffin cases with roughly 3tbs of mixture each and bake in the oven for 20-25 mins. Leave the mofns to cool for 10 mins in the tin. Serve warm spread with butter or leave to cool fully. Will keep for 3-4 days in an airtight container.
