Because they're cheap!
And so quick to make!
And you use up the yogurt in the fridge you really should eat before it expires!
Fake Blueberry Muffins
(makes about 9 muffins)
180g (¾ cup) blueberry yogurt
45ml (3 tbsp) sunflower/vegetable oil
½ tsp vanilla extract/sugar
195g (1⅔ cups) flour
75g (⅓ cup) sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ baking soda
Preheat your oven to 190°C (375°F).
Whisk together the yogurt, egg, oil and vanilla extract.
In another bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Evenly fill muffin cups and bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let them cool (or don't) and quickly eat them, before anyone else notices you made some.
Yes, their colour is kind of weird (especially because they started with a purple yogurt, which made a grey batter, which then turned into blue/green cupcakes), but they're delicious, and super quick.
You can, of course, use other yogurts as well, just look at what you have in your fridge!
