BAKING: Blueberry Muffins

Monday just got a little better after scoffing down one of these delicious blueberry muffins! I have been eating a lot of blueberry muffins at work recently from Costa and having looked at the calorie levels with the guys at work I decided to bake some so called healthier ones with less sugar. Well that was the idea anyway until I decided to also add in some *Lindt chocolate on the bottom!!!!

I picked up this recipe online and instead of putting the full 250g caster sugar I decided to cut the sugar down and added 100g of caster sugar and just 50g of *canderel and see what its like.

Here is the recipe for 8:
110g butter
250g plain flour
100g caster sugar
50g canderel
2 eggs
125ml milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
225g fresh blueberries or tinned blueberries
  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a muffin tin or line with paper cases. Sieve flour, baking powder and salt together and set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat well. Add milk and flour mixture. Beat until combined. Stir in blueberries.
  3. Fill muffin tin 2/3 full. Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 25 to 30 minutes.
These came out very well even though they didn't raise as much as I would like but they were delicious and the sweetness was just right. I eaten one already and I will be taking the rest into work tomorrow!! I won't tell them I used canderel and see if anyone notices......hubby certainly didn't notice!
