Blueberry Crumble Muffins

Muffins are one of my favourite kinds of baked goods and I have tasted many. From cafes to bakeries, there are may different kinds of variations of the classic muffin. From those experiences, the best muffins I’ve felt were those that had a crumbly topping to them, with fluffy and moist crumbs, and so I’ve replicated that with this recipe. Voila! A muffin that includes my favourite aspects of muffins while being a tasty treat for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

Egg Free Blueberry Muffin

Most of the people I know love muffins, but not everyone can eat muffins with eggs. Hence I made these eggless muffins so that people who are allergic to eggs can still make a delicious and moist treat to satisfy their cravings.

Ingredients

  • 240g self raising flour
  • 4g baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 6g baking soda
  • 140g white sugar
  • 100g melted unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 100g sour cream
  • 165g milk
  • 125g blueberries (fresh berries)

Note : If you use a frozen one, please do not thaw.

Method

  • Preheat the oven at 190 degree celsius.
  • Sieve and whisk all the dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, salt sugar and baking soda). Set aside.
  • Mix all the wet ingredients together until everything is well combined using a spatula.
  • Add in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and give it a gentle mix using a spatula. Do not over mix. Over mixing will result in a tough muffin.
  • Fold in the blueberries.
  • Use an ice cream scooper to scoop the batter into muffin cups. Fill it up to 80 percent full.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
