Breakfast with Blueberries

As you've probably noticed, I've been making a lot of muffins lately - and BTW - I'm loving my silicone muffin pan, I'm getting the feeling that silicone kitchen utensils are the best food related invention of the last decade (if they are in fact of the last decade), the silicone spatula is my favorite as well and I'm seriously contemplating buying a silicone brush that I just saw in a kitchen magazine.
But back to muffins. From the slightly weird beetroot ones and the traditional banana and carrot ones I have now come to also quite traditional blueberry ones. Just that mine are high fiber and extra healthy, with some yoghurt so perfect for a good breakfast.

Blueberry Breakfast Muffins (Mustikatega hommikusöögimuffinid):
makes 12

75 g butter
200g coarsely ground whole-grain flour
1/2 tsp soda
2 tsp baking powder
200 ml blueberry yoghurt
75 g demerara sugar
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
200 gr blueberries (frozen work fine)
Some oil for the muffin pan

Mix the dry ingredients.
Melt the butter.
Pre heat the oven to 200 c.
Beat together the eggs, yoghurt and the slightly cooled melted butter.
Now pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and mix lightly (again, the key to good muffins is not over mixing). So mix just enough so that you don't have big areas of flour in the dough.
Half way into your mixing (i.e. when there still are big pockets of flour in the dough) add in the blueberries.

Brush the muffin pan with just a tiny bit of oil and spoon the muffin-mixture into the muffin cases.
Bake for 20 minutes.

These sound delicious with the yogurt. Do you find that things brown enough with a silicone pan? That's been my fear of using silicone.

Mul on olemas nii silikoonist pintsel (kiidan) kui ka spaatel (kiidan väga). On ka silikoonist muffinipann, aga seda kasutan väikeste omletikeste-frittata'de tegemiseks. Muffineid küpsetan endiselt pabervormides metallist muffinipannil. Meeldib nii rohkem, sest küpsevad kuidagi oluliselt paremini..

I don't have any complaints re: browning. The muffins are nice and crispy on top. I also have a heart shaped silicone cake pan and that one also works well.

Pille, kuidas paremini? Nagu kiiremini? Või teistsuguseks? Ma pole tavalistega teinudki üldse muffineid. Ja spaatel on mul ka absoluutne lemmik.

Spaatel ja pintsel ja muffinivorm on silikoonist täielik ime. Kõik on kasutuses. Aga osad muffinid, eriti need, kus ei ole väga palju rasva, tulevad kõige õigemad ikkagi võitatud metallvormis.
