My eldest daughter loves blueberries. When I buy them, she likes eating them straight out of the punnet before the end of the day…..sometimes hour…..then wonders why I didn’t buy more.
Me? Well I’m not the biggest fan, but I do like blueberry muffins!

I found this recipe a little while ago on a blog, but cannot for the life of me remember where. I am pretty sure it is a Donna Hay recipe, but I couldn’t find it on her website. I tell you what though, it is awesome, and I have made it a few times now with some variations.

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 tap baking powder
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 two vanilla extract
300g blueberries
White sugar to sprinkle in top

Method
Preheat oven to 180C (350F)
Place dry ingredients in a bowl.
Whisk wet ingredients in a separate bowl, then add to dry. Mix til just combined.
Mix in blueberries.
Spoon into prepared 12 hole muffin tin, sprinkle with sugar, and bake for 30-35mins, or until golden and cooked through.

Note
Recipe calls for fresh or frozen blueberries, but I have had success with tanned ones. Just rinse a bit, and drain well. I also add chopped white chocolate sometimes for a yummy twist.
I also like them warm with vanilla ice cream, and maple syrup. Mmmmm.

We have had a really wet start to winter, and as a result the kids have been stuck indoors quite a bit.
To brighten up their day, we had a tea party this afternoon, complete with Bohemia Crystal, Fine Bone China, muffins, and Oreos! The girls loved it 🙂

I had a monster day in the kitchen today, preparing freezer-friendly treats for the family.

Vegemite and Cheese, and Sweet Chilli Cheese Scrolls

For the scrolls, I used a sweet dough recipe from the book that came with my bread maker. I used half for the vegemite and cheese scrolls, and half for the sweet chilli cheese. After rolling and slicing, I place most of the scrolls in the freezer on a tray to flash freeze them, before storing them in a container in the freezer. I have taken some back out to thaw/rise slowly overnight, ready for baking tomorrow. If they are good, I will update you 🙂

All the muffins were also flash frozen, and stored in a container in the freezer…..well, all except the blueberry one that I ate…….warmed up…….and served with a dollop of vanilla ice cream! Mmmm

I think I might make some more scrolls tomorrow. I am thinking cinnamon, and maybe some pizza scrolls too.
