  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 75g caster sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 75g unsalted butter

  • 200ml buttermilk or 100g yoghurt and 100ml semi-skimmed milk

  • 200g blueberries

  • 200g plain flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Melt the butter and set aside to cool a little.
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and in a measuring jug beat together the buttermilk (or yoghurt and milk), egg and melted butter.
  4. Using a wooden spoon and a light hand, pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix gently to combine. Don’t worry about lumps, the important thing is the mixture isn’t over-worked.
  5. Fold in the blueberries, again keeping mixing to a minimum.
  6. Spoon into the muffin cases and bake for 20 minutes, by which time the muffins should be risen, golden and firm on top.

    Taken from 'How to be a domestic goddess' by Nigella Lawson. Easy, tasty and packed with a superfood!
