If you haven’t realised until now, I am a huge berry fan. Whatever the berry, I will think of a dessert to make. The berry recipes in this blog are proof for it. Berries not only provide our body with antioxidants, but also with micro nutrients, which are essential for a healthy body. so whenever you find berries include them in smoothies, pan cakes, lassi, compote, Jams and more…

This time they had to be muffins as they can be picked off a box and popped in when hungry????. They stay good in the refrigerator for upto a month. They are easy to pack up on a picnic, road trip and even for hostelers. These are the moistest cup cakes you will find and using good quality berries really enhances the flavour of the cake. I have used dried Blue berries, fresh ones can be used too.

As I say in all my cake recipes, this too is a single bowl recipe, where you mix dry and wet ingredients in one bowl, line up your muffin tins and bake away.

While you are here check out my other very berry desserts like Blueberry Cheesecake, Berry Smoothie Ice cream, Strawberry and Lemon loaf, Easy 2 way muffins, and more…

Here is the recipe for Whole Wheat Blueberry muffins for you

Ingredients

Ingredients

  1. Whole wheat flour/ Multigrain flour 2.25 cups
  2. Sugar 1 cup
  3. Baking powder 3 tsp
  4. Baking soda 1 tsp
  5. Salt 2 pinches
  6. Eggs 2
  7. Butter 60 gms
  8. Oil 4 tbsp
  9. Buttermilk 1 cup
  10. Vanilla essence 2 to 3 drops
  11. Blueberries 100 gms
  1. Firstly put the oven to preheat at 200 C. Now in a bowl mix all the dry ingredients- wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a larger bowl mix all wet ingredients- butter, eggs, oil, and vanilla essence. Do not mix in the buttermilk and blueberries now.
  3. Now slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir. Stir in circular motion. The wet ingredients will absorb the flour and turn dry. Now add the buttermilk, a little at a time and stir gently. Take care not to over stir.
  4. Finally add the Blueberries and give a gentle stir. Now the batter is ready to fill into the muffin tin/cup cake mould. Bake at 190 C for 15 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the centre. If a little wet, then bake another 2 minutes. Enjoy the healthy goodness. Serve when warm.

Notes:

  1. These cup cakes can be made with any berry.
  2. If fresh ones are not available use the dry ones like I have here. If using frozen, then use them directly from the freezer without thawing.
  3. You must have noticed that in this recipe I have used both butter and oil. This is to get the super moist texture. If you do not wish to use butter, then use 1/2 cup oil.
  4. Since oven settings are different for different oven, start checking for doneness from 13 minutes onward.
  5. Whole wheat flour can be substituted with multigrain flour or refined flour if you prefer.
