Ingredients

  • 375g self-raising flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 225ml whole milk
  • 125ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • finely grated zest of ½ lemon
  • 200g blueberries
  • demerara sugar, to sprinkle (optional)

Step by step

Get ahead

Best eaten on the day, but they freeze well, too.

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5 and line the holes of a 12-cup muffin tin with squares of nonstick baking paper or muffin cases. Mix the flour, baking powder and caster sugar in a large bowl. Lightly whisk the milk, olive oil and eggs together in a jug. Pour the egg mixture into the bowl and gently mix with a balloon whisk until half combined.

  2. Add the lemon zest and blueberries and fold in carefully and quickly, just a few times, to combine, using a large spoon – don’t overmix. Spoon the mixture into the muffin tins. Sprinkle the muffins with the demerara sugar, if using, and bake on the middle shelf for 25-30 minutes.
