Will try these thanks. I have never been any good at making Muffins, I cant get over the whole folding in thing, just seem to always over stir.

360 grams (12 ½ oz s) Plain four
120g (4 ½ ozs) Sugar
4 tsps Baking powder
½ tsps Salt
4 eggs
110g (4ozs) Butter (melted)
350 mLs (12 ozs) (Milk)

320 g (12ozs )Fresh blueberries (I use frozen blueberries- Do not thaw)

1. Preheat a 200C (400 F) or gas 6 oven
2. Grease muffin tin or use paper cases
3. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl
4. In another bowl, whisk the eggs until blended. Add the melted butter, milk, vanilla and lemon rind and stir to combine
5. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture. With a large metal spoon, stir just until the flour is moistened, not until smooth.
6. Fold in blueberries
7. Spoon the batter into the cups leaving room for the muffins to rise
8. Bake until the tops spring back when touched lightly, 20-25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out

I think this might be the recipe that was used for our morning tea shout at work last week - had a definite citrus flavour. I already have a recipe I always use but will be adding the lemon zest next time I make them.

Yum thanks. Made them today - no blueberries though - I chopped up fresh plums from the tree, and poked plums into the mixture that was already in the tins. Gorgeous. Muffins are yummy and sweet and the plums were tart - perfection!

sounds like a keeper and must try

must admit when I saw this I thought OMG, but I made some muffins the other day and mixed the blueberries in, when it came to the last 2 muffins the mixture didnt have any blueberries in so I did your trick and yes it is better thanks

Put me down as another who is happy with purple! As long as there is plenty of fruit I am happy.

A long gone local café owner's blueberry muffins, are still the best I have tasted and she added dessicated coconut to the mix.

Blueberry with a decent dollop of cream cheese inside each muffin (not on top) suits me best as I need the extra moisture - but still have to have decent butter on them.

I have to confess that I have never, ever, made muffins.

115 g butter
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c yoghurt (or sour cream)
1/2 c milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 c blueberries

Beat butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs, yoghurt, milk and vanilla essence.
Add to this flour and baking powder then mix. Lastly gently fold in blueberries. Place in muffin tins. Bake 200°C 15-20 mins, or top bounces back when pressed.

Frozen blueberries can be used, just roll in flour prior to adding to the mix so they hold longer while folding in.

Made these today, They turned out fantastic, recipe written into my cookbook. Thanks :o)

a little thing I do when I make my blueberry muffins is - instead of folding in the blueberries (which sometimes can turn the mixture a bit purple looking) - I pop 3 or 4 blueberries into each muffin when I put them in the tin - everyone gets the same amount of berries then !

I do this too, poking them in the muffin with the aid of a skewer. Works great and no purple muffins.
