Want something a little different at tea time? Try this twist with clotted cream… no jam needed!

First, make sure you have the ingredients. Here they are:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh (or frozen and thawed) blueberries
  • 3 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, melted

Mix the oil and sugar.

Add the egg.

After you add the vanilla, add the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.

Melt chocolate in the microwave for one minute, then stir; nuke 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each session.

This smells SO GOOD when it's mixing!

Place the blueberries in a single layer on the bottom of a pan. Sprinkle with sugar and cook over medium high heat.

After a few minutes, they should look like this.

Dump the blueberries in and mix...

...until you can't really tell that there are blueberries in the dough.

Fill muffin tins about 2/3 full.

Bake at 350 for 8 minutes, then start checking the muffins. They need to bake until the tops are dry but not cracked. They will look like this.


These would be great with clotted cream, or even old-fashioned butter. But, frankly, I was just in a hurry to get these puppies into my mouth!

Yeah, baby! That's the stuff!
