Banana & Blueberry Muffin

I had been told it’s the season of blueberry now, and I managed to get some back with really good bargain. This is the first time I cook with blueberry, but I did prepared myself, because I am featuring a total of 4 blueberry recipes, oh yeah, all sweet and luscious. So, let’s start!

First to come is this banana and blueberry muffin. I love the way the blueberry leaks out its wonderful purplepink blood, and stains the muffin within. Of course, besides the “gruesome” effect, the tartness of blueberry also counters with the sweet cake.


  • 1 1/2 cup of plain flour,
  • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder,
  • 1 tsp of baking soda,
  • 1/2 tsp of allspice,
  • 1/4 of salt,
  • 2 ripe large bananas,
  • quarter of lemon juice,
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon,
  • 100 ml of natural yogurt,
  • 50g of melted butter,
  • 3/4 cup of castor sugar,
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract,
  • 1/2 cup of blueberry,

In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients. Mash up the banana together with lemon juice and cinnamon. Combine with the remaining wet ingredients and sugar.

Using a spatula, fold the wet mixture into the dry. Don’t overwork the batter, or else you’ll get a heavy muffin, just letting the flour dampen with liquid. Finally, tumble in the berry.

Divide the batter to 12 muffin paper, and this goes into a 170C oven for 20 minutes.
