Blueberry Muffins


All purpose flour- 2 1/2 cups
sugar- 1 or 1 1/4 cup
baking powder- 1 1/2 tsp
baking soda- 1 tsp
salt- 1/8 tsp
blueberries(fresh or frozen)- 1 1/2 cups
butter- 1/4 cup
eggs- 2
oil- 1/4 cup
milk- 3/4 cup
yogurt- 1/4 cup
vanilla essence- 1 - 2 tsp


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease the muffin tray.
Powder the sugar and sift it along with flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Bring the butter to room temperature and whisk it well . Add eggs to it and whisk again. Add oil, milk , yogurt, and vanilla essence to it and whisk everything well. You can use the hand mixer at low level too.
Toss the blueberries with a tbsp of flour ( so that the bluberries do not sink at the bottom of the muffins) and set aside.
Mix the flour mixture to the wet mixture with a rubber spatula. Do not whisk or beat the mixture at this stage as the muffins would turn out harder. Just mix them gently and fold in the blueberries. Be careful not to squish them.
Fill in the batter to the greased muffin pan until 3/4 th .
Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
Cool them in wire racks.

I used 1 cup of sugar ,but felt the sweet content was less and so next time i would surely go for 1 1/4 cups.
