Donna Hay's blueberry muffins are easy to make and the whole family will love them


1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.

2. Place the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Place the oil, egg, milk and vanilla in a separate bowl and whisk to combine. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the blueberries and mix to combine.

3. Spoon mixture into a 12-hole 125ml capacity muffin tin lined with paper patty cases. Sprinkle the tops with sugar and bake for 30–35 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Remove from tin and cool on a wire rack.

Very good results. I substituted 150g of eating apple for half of the Blueberries for a cheaper option. Kept very well in airtight container for 5 days. Have also tried freezing a couple...will let you know!

good muffin base, you can make type of muffin and they work well. Some muffins call for butter, but real muffins need oil. I made this gluten free (rice flour) and dairy free (almond milk) and used 2 rounded tsp baking powder. Turn out amazing.

Help ! ! I live in a country with no access to fresh blueberries. However, I have dried ones (conserved) in the freezer. Can I use them? Thanks !
