Sunday Blueberry Muffins (with Recipe)

Last Sunday I wanted to make muffins. Pear muffins. Actually - my husband wanted me to make pear muffins. And when I asked him whether we have canned pears - which you need for that recipe - he said yes. So off I went to the kitchen and wanted to start baking ... when I went through the whole cupboard but could not find one single can of pears! 


I so hate when that happens. 
So there I was standing in the kitchen. No pear muffins were going to happen. But I hate to give up on a plan and I really wanted to eat some muffins. Here in Germany the stores are closed on Sundays so buying canned pears was not an option. So what do you do?

Well, I don't know what YOU would do - but I improvised!

Basically I made a combination out of cinnamon muffins and raspberry oatmeal muffins ... without raspberries and without oatmeal ... but with blueberries, wholemeal, and some other stuff that I found in our kitchen.
Oh, and I topped them off with some crumbles "Streusel" - everything is better with them! :-)

So basically you could say I invented a new recipe. 
That does sound so much better than saying I threw together everything I found in the kitchen. ;-)
And you know what - it turned out quite tasty! 
Actually REALLY good. 
And little man went totally frantic when he saw them. 
He started LITERALLY dancing until I finally sat down and let him have one. 

(All in all he had two. I did not give him more as I was scared. Please do not tell anyone that I give blueberry muffins to my 10months old baby!)

So if you dare try the recipe. A 10months old approved it! :-)
But to be honest - he eats everything that is remotely edible.


50g wholewheat flour
200g regular flour
2 tea spoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
140 g brown sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ginger 
120 g softened butter
2 eggs 
240 g joghurt
about 200g frozen blueberries

for crumbles
brown sugar

If anyone would be interested in the measurements using cups instead of grams I could work that out. Just let me know.

Just throw together all dry ingredients and stir. In another bowl goes the butter, eggs, and yoghurt. Mix this. Then add the dry ingredients stirring - do not overstir, as this will make the muffins dry!
Add the blueberries at last.
Add together ingredients for the crumbles - sorry, I have no measurements for those as I usually just throw everyting together until it seems "fine". If you want to I can find a proper recipe for you though! Top the muffins with the crumbles.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees celsius/ 350 F - don't take my word for this. CHECK them often with a wooden toothpick or caketester. When it comes out clean they are done!
