Muffin Monday: Blueberry Muffins

As readers of this blog will know; I kind of have a ‘thing’ for blueberry muffins. As a child I fondly remember making batch after batch of blueberry muffins, but sadly the family recipe has since gone missing and all I have to go on is that it came from Robin Hood Flour and was called Maid Marian’s Muffins. In my mind it was the ultimate muffin – and I was hoping this recipe would replicate the fond memories I had of its blueberry goodness.

Very straightforward and easy, this recipe does not deviate from the norm except it does call for adding a tablespoon of dry ingredients to the blueberries. This is a fantastic trick to ensure your berries don’t bleed into the batter and are evenly distributed. It is a genius move and one that I will definitely use again in the future.

The only change I made to the recipe is that I opted to add the zest of one lemon to the batter. I love the added tang of citrus to my blueberry muffins, and in the past have also been known to dip the muffin tops into a combo of melted butter, sugar and lemon zest. Sinful – purely sinful.

These muffins were simple and pure. It’s a great recipe and I loved how moist they turned out with the addition of plain yogurt. Was it my ultimate blueberry muffin? Not quite – my search continues but in the meantime I highly recommend whipping up a batch of these beauties as it’s the perfect way to start a Monday morning.
