Blueberry Muffins

  1. Add the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder to the bowl. Mix lightly with clean hands.
  2. In a Pyrex measuring glass, add the vegetable oil. Then carefully crack the egg into the oil.
  3. Add the milk to the measuring cup. Gently stir with a fork. Don’t forget to break the yolk!
  4. With your fist, make a dent in the centre of the flour and sugar mixture. Then pour the liquid mixture into the dent.
  5. Gently mix the liquid and dry parts together. Make sure there aren’t any lumps left!
  6. Add the blueberries to the mix, and fold in gently. Don’t let the mix turn blue!
  7. Scoop the mix with a spoon into the muffin tins.

Cinnamon Crumb Topping

  1. With a butter knife, cut the butter into small cubes.
  2. Mix together the sugar, flour, cubed butter and cinnamon gently, until it forms a crumb-like texture. Use a fork to help make sure the pieces of butter are the same size and evenly mixed.
  3. Scoop the topping on to the muffins evenly and neatly. Clean up any spills on the muffin tin or else they’ll burn!

Bake the muffins in a 400° F oven for 20-25 minutes.
