Blueberry banana muffin

The fiance was back from the US after a 2 week work related trip. I am so very fortunate to have a man who ‘listens’ when I jabber what would be of absolute irrelevance to him. For instance when I whine about how we have no blueberries growing here and how I wish I had some to bake muffins or any dessert. It was tremendously sweet of him to remember all the whining and get me a pack of dried blueberries (would’ve been better if it were fresh, but hey what the hell!). So then followed blueberry banana muffins. Why the banana? I figured since the berries weren’t fresh, they wouldn’t kick in a lot of flavour. And I was right. They were nice but maybe I’d ask him to get fresh ones nicely packed the next time. But for now, I’m just glad I have atleast the dried ones 🙂
Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
3/4 cup mashed banana
1/4 cup curd
1 egg
1/3 cup oil / melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup toasted walnuts
1/2 cup fresh/fozen/dried blueberries
a pinch of salt
Method
Combine the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix in the wet ingredients. Add the dry to wet mix and fold. Do not over-mix else the muffins would turn hard. Now fold in the blueberries and walnuts. Scoop 2 tb sp batter into each muffin mould or fill it up 3/4th of the mould. Bake for 20 mins at 190 C in your pre-heated oven. Let them cool and enjoy with some coffee or serve them warm for breakfast. They’re not too sweet or heavy as I’d expected. Quite light and tasty. You get a bit of everything, banana, blueberry, walnut and cinnamon. Real good treat!
