  • 110 grams unsalted butter
  • 70 grams soft brown sugar
  • 110 grams self raising flour
  • 1 tps baking powder
  • 100 grams fresh blueberries
  • 2 eggs

If you are giant hairy bloke with a fondness for flame grilled flesh, then it's probably about time you touched your feminine side or at least a close approximation. I'm not recommending fairy cakes, nope I'm recommending the Big Bad Blue..berry muffins. Blokey yet delicate. Minimum effort maximum results.


Step 1

All your big bad ingredients.

Step 2

Big bowl, big, big bowl. Add the sugar and butter and leave stand until the butter is properly soft.

Step 3

'Cream' the sugar and butter with an electric whisk- simply whisk together until you get a creamy consistency.

Step 4

Next add the eggs, one at a time and slowly combine using the lowest and slowest setting on the whisk or the mix will split (it can be brought back with some flour though).

Step 5

Next add the flour and switch to a hand whisk and again slowly combine. The mix will be pretty tight - don't worry.

Step 6

Sugar up the berries if you want. I have a wicked sweet tooth so I sugar 'em.

Step 7

Add about 1/2 the berries to the mix and fold in. Don't sweat it if some break, it's all good.

Step 8

Spoon the mix into muffin cases in a muffin tin - fill to just over 1/2 full then stud the top with the remaining berries

Step 9

Bake in a hot oven - 200c for about 20 minutes or until well golden. The berries will bleed into the muffin mix and when you rip them open you will get an explosion or purple!!

Step 10


A great way to serve these is with sweet whipped cream. Or beer to swing the needle back to giant hairy blokeness!
