Baking Theraphy

I haven't been feeling very good this week, there are too many things bothering my mind. I hate it when negative feelings become so strong that they prevent me gaining daily happiness which keeps one running and ables focusing on essentials. After almost three days in a gloomy mood I'm now getting back to normal. As baking is something I find relaxing and rewarding I thought I would like to share this nice recipe of blueberry muffins with you. They are one of my favorites and so easy to make. And you can use any berries (rasberries are extremely good) if you don't happen to have blueberries on hand. Enjoy!

Blueberry Muffins

100 g (3.75 oz) butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 dl (2/3 cup) sugar
2 dl (1 cup) wheat flour
1/2 dl (1/4 cup) oat bran
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar/extract
200 g (7 oz) blueberries

Howto: Melt the butter. Beat together eggs and sugar. Mix the flour, oat bran, baking powder and vanilla sugar/extract. Add them into butter-sugar mixture. Add the melted butter and blueberries as well. Pour mixture into greased muffin pan or paper cups. Bake for about 20 minutes in 225 celsius (425 fahrenheit). Makes about 12 muffins. Shift some powder sugar on top if desired!

p.s. If you have your favorite baking recipe somewhere in web, please link me there:)

I'm so sorry you had a bad week. Sometimes life is just tough. Glad, you found a way to get over it. Wishing you a great new week!

Yummy blueberry muffins! They're my fave kind of muffins too. I don't like to bake cake, but I love to bake cookies :) I get my recipe from a magazine. Here you can find many delicious things (only by looking at the photos my mouth is already watering :)), but I never managed to make something from there. I kept on dreaming ;)

Thanks for all support, it was much needed. Now I can see the sun shining again!

Glassfaden, I'm not much of a cake baker either (I adore beautiful cakes though). The link you gave is fabulous, luscious pictures work as a source of inspiration too. Thanks for sharing!
