Blueberry Muffins

I originally got this recipe from All Recipes and thought, sure why not, they might be nice, well they're a revelation, so soft inside but crunchy on top. These are brilliant muffins if you want one with your mid-morning coffee or even for breakfast. Simple enough for children to help make too. I sometimes double the batter mix to make 18 medium sized muffins.

Makes 8 large muffins 

190g Plain flour
150g Granulated sugar
3g Salt
9g Baking powder
80mls Vegetable oil
80mls Milk
1 Egg
145g Blueberries

100g Granulated sugar ( I like to use demerera sugar for extra crunch)
40g Plain flour
50g Butter Cubed
3g Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/ Gas Mark 6. Combine all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the combined wet ingredients. Fold together and add the blueberries. Make the topping by combining the ingredient with a fork and sprinkle on top.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. I'm all for using electric mixers in baking but in this recipe it's best to do it by hand, stir no more than 50 times though!
