  • 400g self-raising flour

  2. Line a muffin tray with paper cases.
  3. Using a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs together until well mixed, then add the oil and milk.
  4. Stir until loosely mixed, then add the brown sugar and honey and mix until a smooth, batter-like consistency is reached.
  5. Sift in the flour and mix well, then add the crushed blueberries.

Spoon into the muffins cases until they are approximately two-thirds filled, lightly sprinkle the tops with the reserved brown sugar then bake in the centre of the oven for 20-25 minutes until they are risen and firm to touch.

Get fruity!


If blueberries are not your bag, or for some equally fruity alternatives, you could try swapping the blueberries for the same quantity of mashed banana, poached pear and vanilla or steamed apple with a teaspoon of cinnamon.
