Whoop Whoop! Hello my friends! We have another amazing Baking With Children Guest Post today from the lovely Kelly-Anne of Mimi Rose and Me. I will head straight to her post here as she has written a beautiful introduction for herself.

Baking with Children

I’m so excited to be guest posting for the lovely Kirsty and taking part in her baking with children series. I absolutely love baking and it’s something that my daughter enjoys too. Most days she will ask me if we can bake some ‘cancakes’. I have always baked with my daughter and now she’s a little older I am more than comfortable with letting her take the reins, we get messy, she likes to lick the spoon but we have lots of fun creating chaos in the kitchen.

Let me introduce myself, I’m Kelly-Anne and I blog over at Mimi Rose and me, where I like to share the adventures about my life with my beautiful family who are always following the fun. You will see lots of posts about my husband and our daughter, three year old Amelia Rose amongst other ramblings. I want to share our ultimate blueberry muffin recipe with you.

We went a little #muffinmania in our kitchen today, trying to create the ultimate blueberry muffins. I love recipes that are simple to follow and turn out how they are supposed to you. I will not tell you about my toad in the hole the other night, I followed Jamie Oliver’s recipe to the exact measurement. Flat as a pancake. Anyway back to #muffinmania. We had some left over dried blueberries and decided to be a little creative with them and bake these amazing muffins.

The Ultimate Blueberry Muffins

The Ultimate Blueberry Muffins


  • 100g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 140ml milk
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 150g fresh or dried blueberries


  1. Line a muffin tray with paper muffin cases. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add in the eggs, one at a time. I find that by adding a spoonful of flour with each egg, can make it easier to combine the ingredients.
  3. Add the remaining flour and baking powder to make the thicker batter, then stir in the vanilla extract and milk.
  4. Add the blueberries and spoon the mixture into the muffin cases.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Leave the blueberry muffins to cool in their tray for 10 minutes before turning them out.
