Blueberry Muffin

I had baked some blueberry muffins for Sharlene’s class party on the last day of school. As I mentioned earlier, I pondered for days...what to buy? what to buy for her?...before I decided on this. It struck my mind that I still have a packet of muffin mix and thought this would be the easiest thing to do. Furthermore, I have all the other ingredients at home. :) I started baking once I got home on the night before the class party and that was about 6.30pm. Put aside my handbag and rushed to the kitchen to gather the required stuff.

At the same time, Sharlene came over, greeted me with her sweetest smile and happily said, mummy, let’s go out for a walk. Oh, how I wished to bring her out. She was rather disappointed when I told her that we couldn’t go out on that day but soon after I told her that we are going to bake muffins for her to bring to school, she forgot about the going out issue and couldn't be more happy to follow me around the kitchen. Kids just love to have fun!!

Well, here are the ingredients needed for the muffins:


1 packet of blueberry muffin mix, 3 large eggs, melted butter (I only used half of the butter) and some full cream milk.

First of all, I melt the butter and let it cool. To hasten the process, I put the pot of melted butter over a basin of cold water. Next, throw in the muffin mix, eggs and milk into a mixing bowl. Mix them well. Later add in the cool melted butter and combine them into a smooth mixture. That’s about all, so simple and fast!

The almost ready mixture. Sharlene helped to stir the mixture before I transfer them into individual muffin cups for baking.

Even though it's simple, the beginning part wasn’t quite easy with my girl’s constant requests to help. Here I’m rushing to complete the baking before everyone comes home and there she messed around with all the ingredients by cutting the butter, cracking the eggs, pouring the milk..etc, etc. The whole procedure got delayed because of this.

My little helper in action. She had pushed a pouffe into the kitchen and stood on it.

I took my dinner while waiting for the muffins to be ready. The muffins elevated so high for the first time. I was so worried that it would sink once it’s cool down.

The muffins were ready after 25 minutes later. And this is how it looks like. Please excuse me for the humble looking muffins, as I’m certainly not a pro in baking. Just loves to try out new recipes and bake some simple stuff for my family during my leisure time. The muffins did taste good nonetheless. :)

Lastly, I packed them individually and thereafter neatly stuffed them into a paper bag for her to bring to school the next day.

They look yummy! I usually use (corn) oil to bake muffins. I think butter wud make them more fragrant.

Great yummy muffins. Good on you for giving it a go! Enjoy more baking sessions with your girl. My daughters love to help as well, but LOTS of patience needed esp with the 3 year old.

Adrine said...

Looks good!
What brand of muffin mix did you use?

Mummy Gwen said...

Your little helper is so cute..hehe. You are so sweet to bake the muffins yourself for Sharlene's class party. The muffins look really yummy.

Fussy mum said...

slavemom: ya, corn oil can be used instead of butter. But the problem is I only have peanut oil (knife brand) at home.

Doreen: you like baking too?..try muffins, its easy to do!

LittleLamb: ya, class party on the last day of school and the teacher asked every parents to contribute some food for the party.

charming: usually I let her participate when it comes to baking...that's how she will learn to do things. But it's very true that sometimes lots of patience needed to guide her.

Adrine: the taste and texture were good but not vy presentable la.. Ermm...no particular brand. You can get it at most of the cake supply shops, and they've other flavors too.

Mummy Gwen: instead of helping, my lil helper created more mess for me in the kitchen...haha.
