Blueberry Yoghurt & Jam Muffin

At this raining and cosy afternoon, both me and my son tends to have craving for some hot and pipping homemade muffins. So this is what we come out with after sourcing for all the ingredients we have in our kitchen pantry....... Finally we decided to make Blueberry Yoghurt & Jam Muffins for afternoon tea.

This is a very Quick and Easy bake that you can do together with your kids. What you need to do is: "Mix - Stir - Pour - Bake" and tata...... by about 20 minutes time you can have your very own homemade blueberry muffins in no time. This is a very healthy and delicious version that use Yoghurt, Olive Oil and Wholemeal flour as part of the ingredients......

Ingredients: (make 10 muffin cups)
1 1/4 Cups(155g) Self-Raising Flour
1/4 Cup(30g) Wholemeal Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Cup(110g) Caster Sugar
1/4 Cup(60ml) Oilve Oil
1/4 Cup(60ml) Blueberry Yoghurt
2 Tablespoons Blueberry Jam
2 Medium Eggs
5 Teaspoons Blueberry Jam, extra
Some Fresh Blueberries
Mini Chocolate Chips, optional

1. Sieve the self-raising flour, wholemeal flour and baking soda together and set aside.
2. Whisk the eggs, olive oil, 2 tablespoons blueberry jam, blueberry yoghurt and sugar with a whisk until well incorporated.
3. Gently pour and mixed the egg mixture into the flour mixture with a spatula till combined.
4. Fill the muffin cups to 1/4 full, drop 1/2 teaspoon of blueberry jam and 5 - 6 min chocolate chips into the batter then fill the cups with the remaining batter to about 3/4 full. (do not over fill the cups as the batter will expand and overflow while baking)
5. Arrange a few blueberries on top of the batter and bake at 200 degree preheat oven for about 15 - 20 minutes depend on the size of the muffin cups and oven type.

a) Baking time will be varies depending on the size of the muffin cups use.
b) The size of the muffin cups used in this recipe is 5.5cm x 3.5cm, 60ml size.

As you can see from the pictures shown, the texture of the muffins is soft, moist and fluffy type due to the adding of baking soda and yoghurt. So if you are a fan of muffins, especially blueberry favour... then don't miss the chance of giving this recipe a try... :) Posted by Picasa
