Extra Moist Blueberry Muffins


This month, 2 of my favourite blogging challenges have combined to form Tea Time Random Recipes. It's such a brilliant idea and I love it! Dom has been planning world domination for months and I'm sure this is a small step towards that goal ;-)  It's going to be a massive month of glorious, random tea time treats and I can't wait to see the round up! The challenge was simple. Put together books that would have tea time recipes and randomly select one then randomly select a page. I dutifully did as I was told and came up with Scrumptious Muffins by Marc Grossman. It's a lovely little book full of scrumptious muffins as the title suggests!



I decided to use a random number generator to pick a random page - the book has 69 pages in total excluding the index and it came up with 16 which is extra-moist blueberry muffins. Yum! This is a great recipe for blueberry muffins and one that I will definitely be using again. It has a crumble topping which was delicious and the best part is that the berries didn't sink! The secret is to push the berries in after filling the mould with batter. Next time, I would fold half the berries in the mixture and then add the other half on top. The result was a really juicy, moist muffin bursting with blueberries! 


As mentioned I am entering this to Tea Time Random Recipes hosted by the Tea Time Babes Karen from Lavender and Lovage and Kate from What Kate Baked and Dashing Dom over at Belleau Kitchen, creator of Random Recipes.


I'm also entering these fruity muffins to Breakfast club run by Helen from Fuss Free Flavours and hosted this month by  Urvashi from the Botanical Baker. The theme of course is fruit and there's plenty of that here!

 I decided to try out my new petal muffin cases which I couldn't resist buying


 The recipe says to add the blueberries at the end, sinking it into the mixture - this is the fail proof method of preventing berries sinking that I have been looking for so take note everyone!

 Extra moist muffin indeed :)
