The super berry

There is always an air of excitement in our household when we discover that fresh blueberries are available for a reasonable price. Not long after, a batch of muffins generally appears on the kitchen counter – although they dont seem to last for long.

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, and are a low kilojoule / low GI addition to your diet. They are even said to promote brain health, preserve vision and protect against cancer. Blueberries really are are quite the super berry, and a perfect ingredient for these light and fluffy muffins!

First, self raising flour and caster sugar are mixed together, with a generous amount of blueberries thrown in.

Add buttermilk (the secret that makes this recipe wonderful!), vegetable oil and an egg and stir the mix until just combined.

Divide the mixture among 12 muffin cases, filling to about 2/3.

Bake in the over for 20 mins then enjoy!!! I guarantee they wont last long 🙂
