Blueberry Muffins

Tonight I've made Blueberry Muffins.

Two ants were harmed during the making of this recipe, but none are in the cakes.

Heat your oven to 210 oc

Get a muffin tin and place paper cases inside.

Then get a bowl and a spoon

Put in the following:

12 oz self raising flour, sieved
4oz plain flour, sieved
3.5 oz of soft brown sugar
1 punnet of blueberries
and mix together.

In a seperate bowl or jug whisk the following

8 oz of milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

make a hole in the flour mix and pour the milky mix in and stir.

Melt 4oz of butter or marg and mix this into the mix also.

A metal spoon is advised for use in this recipe, as the mixture sticks to it less.

Spoon into the Muffin Cases and bake for 30 mins, test to ensure the middle is cooked.

Enjoy with a nice cup of Earl Grey. (and no ants)

Yum! Makes me want to do some baking again... I think it has something to do with your recommendation to enjoy with a cuppa. :)

Perhaps its time to try chocolate coated ants.
Read the blurb they sound yummy NOT

>Hand toasted Giant Queen Leafcutter Ants coated in the finest Belgian Chocolate. Every spring when the rains come in Colombia the Guane Indians collect the new Queens when they are emerging from their underground nests, only one Queen Ant is needed in a colony so the new Queens have to leave. The Indians have been collecting these ants every spring when they fly from their nests to toast in a clay pot over an open fire for centuries, and they are considered a rare delicacy. The ants are also nutritious and tasty and are said to be good for boosting your immune system, because they are rich in formic acid. They can also give you a mini energy boost.

They are a nutty and tasty treat. In fact they are our most popular <
