Sourdough Blueberry Muffins

Slightly dense and bursting with blueberries. I’ve used unfed sourdough starter discard in this recipe but active sourdough can also be used. Muffins made with active sourdough will be slightly fluffier.



Step: 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 10 muffin cups with paper liners.

Step: 2

Combine blueberries and 2 teaspoons flour and toss to coat.

Step: 3

Combine 1 cup flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Whisk sourdough starter, sugar, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract together in a second bowl. Whisk briskly until no streaks appear. Mix flour mixture with sourdough mixture, and stir well. The batter will be quite thick. Fold blueberries into the batter.

Step: 4

Spoon batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups.

Step: 5

Combine sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon for the topping in a bowl and mix with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over the muffins.

Step: 6

Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed and a toothpick comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which not always getting bigger as well as white bread.

To made this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
