Eggless Blueberry Muffins

Baking has always fascinated me. I would look at the cakes in a cake shop and wonder if I could actually make one someday. Many have told me that baking isn’t that difficult. So, one day I set about to bake something. I looked up the internet and saw so many recipes for so many different varieties of pies, cakes, muffins, cupcakes, breads, rolls and the list goes on. I wanted to do something easy, as this was my first time and I decided to go with the muffins.
My husband and MIL are both allergic to eggs and hence I had to select something that didn’t have eggs. While searching the internet for some egg less muffin recipes, I came upon this simple one. So, all I had to do was to get the ingredients and a muffin sheet and go bake, bake n baking!!!
2 cups - Flour (all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour. I used only whole wheat flour and it came out really well)
1 cup - Sugar (my husband has a sweet-tooth and hence I added 1 ½ cups)
4 tsps - Baking powder
1 cup - Milk
3 tbsps - Melted butter / oil
1 cup - Fresh Blueberries

Combine flour, sugar and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Stir in milk and melted butter by hand. Fold in the blueberries. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Fill each cup with 2/3 of the mixture. The best way to ensure equal portions is to use an ice cream scoop or a ladle. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 25 minutes.
These muffins are make good desserts, evening snacks...overall something healthy yet fun to have.

Note 1) You can also try substituting blueberries with apples, chocolate chips or just make them plain. Aparna made them with apples and they were very good. When using apples, try adding a tsp of cinnamon/nutmeg powder for added flavour. 
         2) Please make sure your baking powder is fresh. The first time I made these muffins,  I used baking soda which had been in the fridge for a while and this left a strong aftertaste. I had to throw the whole batch)

Update -Banana Muffins made using the same recipe -

  1. Wonderful tips on the baking soda / baking powder. I think I'm making the same mistake. But why is it that the bitter taste is only for muffins and not cakes?

    Another useful tip on choco chips too. I faced the same problem. they settled down at the bottom!

    The eggless muffin recipe looks simple and do-able. Time to eat some fresh home-made muffins :) Thanks, girls, you're doing a wonderful job :) Keep-going! Best Wishes!
