Too-Easy Bluberry Muffins~

I have never make blueberry muffin before. Can you believe it...:p 
I have thought of making this muffin a few times but never lay my hands on it..until now WHY now??  Because...
when I first saw the 'Cook like A Star' blog hop in Zeo's place, I am so excited and wanted to join. I started to browser in Donna Hay website hope to find a recipe that I like and it is easy to follow. I found this:
To-easy Blueberry muffins - recipes by Donna Hay From Donna Hay- Fast, Fresh, Simple

~my frozen blueberries~

I said to myself, this is the one I want to make.
I live in Malaysia, in a very small town named Miri. It is very hard to get fresh blueberries here and not even frozen ones. The next day I went to the local fruit stall, guess what?? I am so lucky they sell fresh blueberries. I bought a box, came home and found that the recipe need 300 grams of blueberries and I only have 125 grams of a box. I packed and freeze the blueberries and hope to get another box the next day. Unfortunately, they are all sold out. I have no choice so I make half of the recipe.
Challenges comes again, hahaha what happen?? When I make the muffin I used bread flour instead of self raising flour (clumsy me)..the muffins turn out to be.... I guess you know what it became.

~the one with bread flour ...I used the wrong flour, I used bread flour instead of self raising flour~

 I can't join the blog hop with a unsuccessful Blueberry Muffins. I decided to make the muffins again. This time I get it right and it is really really muffin...just nice and it is just like its named 'Too-Easy Blueberry Muffin'... too-easy to make.

Too-Easy Blueberry Muffins 
This is the original recipe from Donna Hay recipes ..
375g self-raising flour. sifted
1 tsp baking powder
220g castor sugar
125ml vegetable oil
1 egg
125ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
300g frozen blueberries
granulated sugar for sprinkling

1) Preheat oven to 180c (350F). Place the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.
    Place the oil, egg, and vanilla in a separate bowl and whisk to combine,
    Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
    Add the blueberries and mix to combine. 

~Adding in the frozen blueberries.~
Spoon mixture into a 12-hole muffin tin lined with paper patty cases. (I used silicone cups lined with paper patty cases)

~These are going to the oven..for 30 minutes. ~

    Sprinkle the tops with sugar and bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Remove from tin and cool on a wire rack.

I am joining the 'Cook Like A Star' blog hop event for March 2012 host by Bake For Happy Kids....Oops!! I only realize that the collection is close :(
Anyway, I learn a lot from this recipe and I love to make this Too-Easy Blueberry Muffins again. Next time might try, change to other fruits that is more easy to get in my town.
No worries I wil try to join the next 'Cook like A Star' blog hop event...^^



  1. I like to bake with berries too. However the $ of any berries here(Kuching) is expensive! A box around 200g sure costs more than Rm15! Can't find frozen one. So not sure the $. Anyway how much you pay for the 125g blueberries ? Really like to have some of your lovely muffins ^^

  2. Thanks Viv. I manage to buy the 125g for rm15 in the local fruit stall. Before that I went to Giant they are selling 125g for rm20.99...can you imagine that??
    Viv, are you from Kuching??

  3. If not mistaken the price for berries is a lot cheaper in Peninzular. Wow! $15 for 125g if me 不奢的买咯。
    Nope, we (hubby and I) are from Penizular. Follow my hubby ever since he work in Kuching.

  4. Viv, really a lot cheaper in Peninsular. I remember when I go to KL for a visiting, I did see some in the supermarket is so much cheaper.

    Are you still in Kuching nowadays following your hubby?

  5. 图片中的这种塑胶杯子是可以送进烤箱?

  6. Kate,

  7. I'm staying in Kuching now. Almost 9 years now... Time pass really fast.
