Blueberry Yoghurt Muffins | ブルーベリー ヨーグルト マフィン

An extremely simple, quick to make homemade ‘Blueberry Muffins’. It may be hard to believe but ‘MUFFINS’ are not regular items you may see at bakeries here in Tokyo, incomparable as to when I used to live in Los Angeles. Muffins used to be my favorites for breakfast accompanied with a cafe latte and the LA blueberry muffins were just humongous. Muffins….really  not difficult to make. When producing my own original recipe, I always go the very organic and healthy route with no butter and low sugar and lots of blueberries; which are below. A petite size are nice to have especially for children’s snacks. ブルーベリーのシロップ漬けが常備されていれば、とっても簡単にできるブルーベリー・マフィン。ロサンゼルスに住んでいた頃は巨大なマフィンが大好きでした。アメリカはマフィン大国でベーカリーにはパンよりマフィンの数々、それもかなりのボリューム感があり一回では食べきれず何回にも分けて食べれる位大きかった記憶があります。日本には巨大マフィンがなくとも、パン屋さんはマフィンよりも美味しいパンが沢山あるのでムリもありませんが。 フルーツ入りの洋風お茶菓子は主人の好物の一つでもあるので我家はマフィンやらスコーンやら、、比較的常備されております。 一番簡単なレシピでヨーグルトを使いヘルシーレシピを公開。 ご興味のある方、お子さんのいらっしゃる方、、是非作ってみて。 Blueberry Yoghurt Muffins Recipe (makes 6 large) 【A】 1 large egg 240ml yoghurt 80ml rapeseed oil 【B】 260g flour 70g sugar 50g almond powder 1 + 1/2teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 【C】 270g blueberry (syrup) OR 170g blueberry + chocolate chips Combine the 【A】ingredients with a beater/mixer.

Weekend Bread Bakery

My weekend breads which I make for my small group of friends. My homemade bread baking goes back ….oh gosh…..over 10 years. Breads could be a time consuming process (at times) but I got totally addicted to the organic reaction of ‘fermentation’ which to think of it…a lot of Japanese food such as MISO, SOYSAUCE, SAKE are also produced from the process. My breads uses YEASTS and NATURAL DERIVED YEASTS which I hope to introduce at due course in my future blogs. A distinctive process of my bread-making is leaving it overnight to proof in the fridge which makes the bread soft and moist compared to a ultra-speed yeast boost.   Croque Monsieur Soft boiled egg, ham and cheese baked on a English Muffin Bun, served as a light lunch snack.   EGG NESTED MUFFIN Soft boiled egg nested inside a English Muffin dough.     CRANBERRY SCONES My scones is sort of a moist bread scone, proofed at least 24 hours with yeast (or natural yeast) and then refrigerated before it goes into the …
