Blueberry Muffins

I love blueberries. Unfortunately they are not easily avaiable here.
My mom has been on a lookout for them, for me, for the longest time possible and she finally got them in Aurangabad - the dried ones.
She kept a packet for me!

When i got it back home to Pune, i knew i had to make blueberry muffins!

Here goes...

Blueberry muffins
Serves : 2 adults who love desserts and don't want to share! 6 muffins!

Ingredients :

All purpose flour - 0.5 cup
Whole wheat flour - 0.5 cup ( you can skip this and add 1 cup all purpose flour, if desserts don't push you on a guilt trip!)
Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt - 1/8th teaspoon
Granulated sugar - 3/4th cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1/4th cup ( i used normal cooking oil)
Egg - 1
Blueberries - 1/2 cup ( or more, there is no such thing as "too many blueberries" )

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180C
2. Add hot water to just about cover the blueberries and let them soak for 5 mins. (this is only if you are using dried ones)
3. Bowl 1 : Combine Dry ingredients (first 4)
4. Bowl 2 - Combine wet ingredients. Whisk the egg before adding
5. Combine dry and wet ingredients. Drain water from blueberries and add them and mix properly.
6. Put in muffin tray / holders
7. In the oven - for 20 mins with both heating grills (top and bottom) on. Last 2 mins just keep the top grill on.
8. Insert a knife and check. If it comes out clean, remove the muffins
9. Let them cool and then attack ( i normally skip the let them cool phase, its just too hard!)
