blueberry and chocolate chip muffins

by - Friday, August 03, 2012

Ah, Friday at last! Post exertional malaise has been really tough to deal with this week, which accounts for my lack of blogging. But here's some exciting news - I checked out the Craft & Quilt Fair last Sunday (which unfortunately has partly contributed to my major fatigue increase this week) and oh my gosh, was it incredible! I hope to blog about it soon, but seeing as I'm feeling like crap, today I am sharing my favourite muffins that I like to bake when the going gets tough.

Nothing beats freshly baked warm blueberry and chocolate chip muffins, right? Right! Consider this recipe my cheer up gift to you. Can't say where I got this recipe from as I have no idea, but I can tell you that they taste divine.

Muffin Ingredients:

425g blueberries (canned or fresh)
75g unsalted butter
240g milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 egg lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups self raising flour
icing sugar

Muffin Instructions:

Melt butter in saucepan. Add half the chocolate with sugar. Stir over low heat until smooth. Remove. Whisk in milk, egg, vanilla and flour until just combined. Fold in the blueberries and remaining chocolate. Cook in moderate oven for 20 minutes. Cool and dust with icing sugar.

Pretty simple for something that tastes so good!
