Blueberry and Strawberry Yoghurt Muffins

Hello Everyone and Welcome to my first recipe post of 2015.

Today I’m going to share with you a lovely recipe for blueberry and strawberry yoghurt muffins. The yoghurt added to these makes them so so soft and light that they can only be a delight to eat! Most people use plain yoghurt in baking but I’ve used strawberry here and it gives these muffins an extra, delicate fruity flavour. They don’t taste overwhelmingly of strawberry, the blueberry still stands out as the main flavour, but it adds another subtle taste dimension (ooh that sounds a bit posh doesn’t it!)

Blueberry and Strawberry Yoghurt Muffins

You Will Need:

225g Self-Raising Flour
100g Golden Caster Sugar
1 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
200g Strawberry Yoghurt (I used Yeo Valley)
80ml Oil
2 Large Eggs
150g Blueberries

First, pre-heat your oven to 180°C. You will need two bowls, one big, one medium. In the big bowl, mix the flour, sugar and bicarb and then stir in the blueberries so they are fairly coated in the flour mix.

In the smaller bowl whisk together the eggs and oil until it has amalgamated.

Then whisk the yoghurt into this wet mix until, again, it is all brought together in one smooth mix.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry and stir together with a wooden spoon until JUST combined. You really don’t want to over-mix here as you might end up with tough muffins.

Once it’s come together then spoon the mixture into some muffin cases.

Then all you need to do is pop them into your pre-heated oven and bake them for around 15 minutes or until they are golden brown, nicely risen and will spring back when you press them lightly with your finger. If you’re unsure then stick a tooth pick in and it should come out clean.

Put the muffins on a wire rack to cool and then enjoy (they are actually quite nice warm!).

Honestly, this recipe is so easy you have no excuse not to try it. Get the kids involved too, it is so hard for them to get anything wrong here so you can give them minimal supervision. I’d love to see some pictures if you do try them.
