Berry Muffins.

It is Bank Holiday Monday, so what do I do? I bake, of course! We had some blueberries that needed to be eaten, but not quite enough for my usual Hummingbird Blueberry Muffin recipe so I decided to make up the rest of the weight in white chocolate chips. However, this recipe is so versatile that you could add any berries you want! Raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or you could even turn this into a chocolate chip recipe. As long as your added ingredient(s) weigh 250g!


360g plain flour
370g caster sugar
1tsp salt
1.5tsps baking powder
1.5tsps bicarbonate of soda
375ml buttermilk
1 egg
1.5tsps vanilla extract
70g butter (melted)
250g other ingredient(s) - (in this case I used 200g blueberries and 50g white chocolate chips)


1. Preheat the oven to 170˚C.
2. Put your flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl (please note the fact that it needs to be a large bowl, there's a lot of ingredients) and combine them using a wooden spoon.
3. In a different bowl, lightly whisk together the buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract. 
4. Slowly pour this mixture into the dry ingredients, constantly beating. 
5. Once all of that is thoroughly combined, add the melted butter and beat the mixture until it is even and smooth.
6. Finally, fold in the blueberries and chocolate chips.
7. Spoon the mixture into muffin cases (the ones pictured were a birthday present from Olivia Ellen, I think she bought them off ebay - similar here ) and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they are a nice golden brown colour and you have done the skewer test. 
8. Allow to cool before eating.
