Hello to all the readers of my blog. I take the opportunity to thank all readers/bloggers who have liked my posts so far. As it’s a new blog, your likes give me lot of encouragement, and I am enjoying this blogging experience. Each blog post written so far has been a different experience, with something new thing learnt along the process in this wonderful blogging journey.
Continuing with the baking post, I am sharing the recipe of blueberry muffins that I baked yesterday evening, thinking of my dad, who always relished and loved the cakes that I baked. Thinking of him brings out a flood of memories and lots of cherished moments. Dedicating my blog to my dad, knowing his love for me, he will always be with me in this journey. He would have loved commenting and giving me valuable inputs to each and every post of mine, something which I am going to miss a lot. In the next couple of posts, I plan to recreate some moments for myself by cooking and sharing some of my dad’s favourite dishes.
125g unsalted butter, softened
200g castor sugar (powdered sugar would also do)
300g refined flour + 1tsp baking powder
100 ml milk
1tsp berry essence
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-assisted. Line the muffin tray with paper cases.
- Beat ingredients-sugar, eggs, butter, milk and essence in medium bowl on low-speed with electric mixer until ingredients are just combined. Increase the speed to medium and beat until the mixture is smooth.
- Fold in the refined flour.
- Drop rounded tablespoons of mixture along with the blueberries into the paper cases; bake for around 25-30 minutes.
- Cool on wire racks.
- Top with icing of choice or fresh cream with more berries on top. I prefer it plain with hot tea or coffee.
