Blueberry Muffins

Posted by Annita on June 18, 2008

Now some freshly baked muffins from Elise’ Simply recipes.This recipe is very simple and definitely a keeper.


Blue berries – 1 and 1/2 cups
All purpose flour – 3 cups + 1 tbsp(only if using frozen blueberries)
Baking powder – 1 tbsp
Baking Soda -1/2 tsp
Unsalted butter softened – 10 tbsp
Sugar -1 cup
Eggs – 2 large
Plain Yogurt – 1 and 1/2 cup
Lemon peel grated – 1 tsp
Salt – 1/2 tsp


Preheat oven to 375°F.Take a bowl, beat butter and sugar together until fluffy.Now add one egg,beat it and add the other.Beat it again until they are well incorporated.Now beat in grated lemon peel.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients to the beaten egg-sugar mixture,and beat it until just incorporated.Now beat in one third of yogurt ,beat in half of the remaining dry ingredients,beat in second third of yogurt,beat in remaining dry ingredients and then the remaining yogurt.Do not over beat, beat it until they are just incorporated.Fold in the blue berries.If you are using frozen berries, defrost them first, drain the excess liquid, and then dust them in 1 tbsp of flour.

Coat a standard muffin pan with vegetable oil sprays or butter and distribute the muffin dough equally among all cups.Bake until muffins are golden brown,about 25 to 30 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted at the centre comes out clean.Allow it to cool for 5 minutes,remove from the pan and serve hot.

    Hi Annita,
    May be I am talking nonsense, is there any way we can get the batter ready a day ahead and just do the baking on morning. As per my mom, she says we cant since we add baking powder and stuff. Thought I will check with u. Ur recipes are just irresistable, I just want to jump into my apron and start cooking.

    Annita, I have one question. Why do we need to use both baking powder and soda? Wont baking Soda be enough? I dint know theres a seperate baking powder. I am very new to baking.Would it make a difference if I just use baking soda? Pls let me know. Also, If I have less than a cup of blue berries in my freezer, can i reduce the quantity of flour into half of this recipe? Pls let me know.
