I normally buy fresh. But I saw these frozen blueberries and mixed berries at the supermarket for AUD$3.90 for 450 grams. Much cheaper than the fresh ones even when berries are in season. And it's winter so I cannot even get fresh blueberries.
So, I've made some blueberry muffins following the recipe on the packet. Normally, I reduce the sugar in recipes but not this time. And it turned out to be just the right sweetness for me. I omitted white chocolate bits as I did not have any in the pantry. I think if I added white chocolate bits then I might reduce the sugar. It turned out moist and soft. I might try with wholemeal flour next time.
1 cup frozen berries
2 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white chocolate bits
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
- Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
- Sift all dry ingredients into a large bowl.
- Stir in everything else.
- Spoon mixture into muffin trays.
- Depending on the size of the muffins, bake from 20-30 minutes.
