Very Soft Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins - Lilie Bakery

A nice batch of Very moist blueberry muffins and well inflated, what do you think? A perfect recipe for breakfast or afternoon tea! Not very sweet, filled with fresh fruit, it would be wrong to deprive yourself of it ...

Starting the day with warm fresh-baked muffins sounds a bit like the perfect breakfast. These are very easy to do, within minutes 15. Nothing better than to smell the beautiful smell that emanates from the oven when they cook!

Ingredients to plan for this blueberry muffin recipe

The base of muffins is very classic. Inside we find flour (wheat or spelled as you prefer), yeast, baking soda, brown sugar, salt and a touch of cinnamon (to enhance the taste of blueberries).

For the other ingredients, you should provide butter, eggs, whole liquid cream and blueberries.

I prefer to use fresh blueberries : they disgorge less during cooking, which avoids ending up with a very blue muffin dough!

PS: all quantities are given to you in detail at the bottom of this article.

The equipment for successful muffins

Whether for cupcakes or muffins, I use a 12 cavity rigid muffin pan. I cook several times in succession if necessary, cooling it between each. For that I pass it under a trickle of cold water.

Inside the mold impressions, I place white paper boxes, which become transparent when cooked. This facilitates demoulding and also transport and prevents everyone from putting their fingers in it.

Sometimes I also use rigid muffin boxes that stand on their own in the oven. Just place them on the baking sheet.

How to make super moist blueberry muffins?

As for the cakes, we start by beating together the butter and the brown sugar to obtain a mixture. very creamy. Then add the eggs and vanilla.

Separately, the dry ingredients are sifted together and incorporated in three batches, alternating with the cream. The resulting paste is quite thick but this is what makes it possible to hold the blueberries well afterwards (avoiding that they all fall to the bottom).

In the last step, add the fresh blueberries. I them gently incorporate with a spatula so that they do not break in the dough.

Finally, all that remains is to pour the dough into the paper boxes placed in the muffin tin before placing in the oven.

Tips for well rounded muffins

To make sure your muffins rise in the oven, there are several tips. First of all, you need a significant amount of lifting agent: do not be afraid of the amount of yeast of these blueberry muffins is normal.

Then you have to make sure do not over-mix dough. You have to stop as soon as you no longer see lumps of flour. This allows the dough to swell well.

Finally, the cooking is done in a very hot oven, to create a temperature shock conducive to the "rounded" side of muffins.

      Hello Allison, to answer your question, I do not advise you to replace this ingredient: the cream adds a lot of softness to the muffins. They will be drier without it. See you soon :)

      Hello Anna, you can take frozen blueberries but above all do not defrost the blueberries before, and coat them in a little of the amount of flour (provided in the recipe). See you soon :)
