  • 170 g flour 1 cup + 1/3 cup
  • 75 g brown sugar 1/3 cup
  • one pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 100 ml milk 1/2 cup
  • 50 g unsalted butter -melted and slightly cooled- 3 tbsp +1 tsp
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence –optionnal-
  • A handful blueberries -optional-


  1. Preheat the oven at 400°F (200°C) and prepare 8 cupcake liners or 4 muffin liners.
  2. Whisk the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg, milk, butter and vanilla.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon, just until incorporated. Do not over mix.
  5. If you add blueberries, fold them and incorporate really slightly: you don’t want the batter to give wet to your batter.
  6. Pour (50 g) of batter for the medium muffins and/or (100 g) for the big ones.
  7. Bake at 400°F for 5 minutes then turn down the oven at 350°F. Bake for a further 15 min.
  8. Let cool slightly. You can drizzle with homemade icing (icing sugar+milk), with blueberries, it’s a win-win!
