Lovely light muffin, with a delicious hint of lemon.
I used white sugar as I didn't have caster sugar and they turned out really great.

The recipe above could do with some extra instructions for beginners though:
Sift flour and baking powder into the bowl first.
Assemble all of the wet ingredients on the bench so you can add them quickly.
Beat the egg separately then add.
Mix until just combined.

Mixture is very runny, so next time I'll make it in a jug so it's easier to pour into the muffin tins!

They where really yummy. I used raspberries rather than blueberries. It made 12 but i made 12 big ones and 12 minies.

Easy to make, seemed to work well, tasted wonderful just make more than 12 muffins. I made 17.

Love tis recipe it is so simple to make and turns out great

I don't do a lot of cooking and had not made muffins for over 20 years. I have used this recipe twice now for my grandchildren and they absolutely love them.

Perfect! Didn't stir the batter much and it came out very well

it was good as bro chur to all youz that made the recipe!


Very good but was very sticky but if we tried to cook it for any longer it would of burnt.

I was really disappointed with this recipe. Yes it was quick and easy but the muffins were very dense and sticky. However the flavour was really nice and the lemon zest that comes through was really good. I may give this another go but will be looking at other blueberry muffin recipes to try.

Just made these with my 2.5yr old son. We didn't have a lemon to use so that was all that was missing. He sprinkled a wee bit of sugar on top to make them crispy. Our 1st attempt was 100% successful!! Thanks Chelsea!!! We will be trying more recipes over winter because he really enjoyed himself and so did I.

I must have put in double the amount of Lemon zest and juice and it tasted absolutely amazing! definitely recommend larger quantities for citrus fans!

Mmmm! These muffins were delicious. Thank you so much for this yummy recipe.

Was very worried about the running consistency of the batter. But it was actually a delicious muffin. Very cake like. I will however only put 1 cup of milk next time. Blueberries all sunk to the bottom but will coat them with flour next time. Took them for morning tea and they loved them.

4 stars.

Yummy muffins. Used milk powder in stead of milk. Still worked well.

Very disappointing. Didnt cook at all in the 20 mins so had to put them back in for 10 mins then 20mins and they are still sludgy on the bottom.

1 cup of liquid was just right as I used frozen berries. It would have been too sloppy with 1 1/2 cups. Turned out lovely and crispy on the outside and the muffin melted in my mouth.

great recipe! i'm 11 and i made these. sooooo yummy. highly recommend them :)


Was rather sloppy mixture.
However I added a tablespoon of flour and only 2 tsp of baking powder as 4 is over kill.
2 cups of blueberries and about 1-2 Tbl spoon of fine coconut as the "batter" would of bein bland.
baked at 180 for 20min.they look the part waiting to eat !!

Very disappointing!!! It may be a very easy recipe but tasteless. I don’t know if more sugar or blueberries will help, as the textures is not great either. I was very reluctant to even give this a 1 star rating!

My muffins turned out awful. They were rubbery instead of light and fluffy.
I don’t think you should put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until just combined because the egg doesn’t get mixed through properly.

Loving this recipe easy as

Couldn't believe how easy the recipe was to follow.
Thanks and yum from my kids !!!

First time baking and lets just say i did a pretty good job. Thanks Chelsea :)


Best recipe! So easy, not many dishes. Love it.

Quick easy and delicious.

This was so easy to make. Everything in together, stir till combined and bake. I have tried making muffins before without success but these were beautiful and so EASY. Followed the recipe to a tee and no problems at all

They came out fine but probably just as well I had my toddler baking with me who ended up spilling the last bit of milk out of the jug as they would have been too runny as well after reading others comments. I had enough mixture left for 7 more muffins so I added about 2 tablespoons of extra sugar and a drop more oil. Taste really yummy!

Great and esay to do had to be careful not to over or under mix

Runny mix and a tasteless. I added more blueberries but still tasteless - all I can taste is baking powder - need more sugar and maybe less milk and just use self raising flour. Very disappointing.

Very runny mix, muffins currently in oven but I'm not hopeful. 1 and 1/2 cups of milk might be excessive?

EASY and awesome to make.

Delicious with a D

why do I fail when others succeed? I made this to a T and it seemed extremely runny, I soldiered on without altering the recipe, I made sure not to over mix. I poured the mixture into my muffin tray tested them at 25 minutes at 200 they weren't cooked so I left them for another ten then took them out and they immediately started to deflate so I hurriedly put them back in. And now here I am fighting a losing battle waiting for more disappointment.
I am 34 weeks pregnant and may be a tad dramatic at the moment. Where did I go wrong?
