Blueberry and Lemon Muffins

A light and healthy treat for breakfast, lunch or snack time. These blueberry muffins have the added flavour of lemon, which really brings out all the flavours wonderfully.

Blueberry and Lemon Muffins

Ingredients:
175g plain flour
75g caster sugar
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
2 eggs
50g butter, melted
175ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp grated lemon rind
150g blueberries

Preheat oven to 200oC/180oC fan/gas 6. Grease or line 12 muffin tins.

Sift the flour, caster sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl.

Lightly whisk the egss in another bowl, then add the melted butter, milk, vanilla and lemon rind and stir until combined.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture. Using a large metal spoon, stir until the flour is moistened and incorporated but not until the mixture is smooth.

Gently fold the blueberries into the mixture with a metal spoon until they are evenly distributed.

Spoon the mixture into the tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

My mouth is craving a lemon/lime dessert and I have something in mind (a grand plan) of what I would like to make. Not so sure I could pull it off though!
