blueberry muffins..

Near my house, there is a small bakery shop around the corner. It is a family owned shop and they do some serious business. I love all their bakery items! There is always a mad rush and if you are late then you probably won't find your favorite items. I am super addicted to their blueberry muffins- Soft, moist and it simply melts in your mouth. Inspired by lindsey and her lovely blog, I baked my very fist batch of Blueberry muffins- Absolutely divine!



Blueberry muffins-
(adapted from Gingerbread Bagels)

Ingredients-
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter (slight variation, she had baked it with oil and I switched to butter)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon zest (slight variation, original recipe calls for orange zest and I switched to lemon)
2 large eggs
1 cup yoghurt

Preparation-

In a bowl mix flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yoghurt, sugar, vanilla and melted butter. Add in the lemon zest and give it a quick whisk. Start mixing the flour to the yoghurt mixture and gently whisk. You have to slowly mix them and not overbeat the ingredients. Don't worry if you have lumps in the batter. Add the blueberries and gently blend them with the mixture (with the help of a spoon). Line a muffin tin with muffin liners. With the help of a spoon gently pour the batter in each liner. Bake it at 200 degree celsius for 20 to 25 minutes. Once baked allow it to cool and gently remove them from the muffin tray. Enjoy!
