La cucina di Nicola: Blueberry muffins (our own version!)

La Cucina di Nicola is growing! I am not talking about my ten year old non-stop growing spur, nor I am talking about my waist. We are growing up because we are trying our own version of recipes! YES WE ARE! We are getting confident with our baking, and we are trusting our instincts... I have to teach my boy about self confidence and originality, don't I?
We wanted, craved, desired some blueberry muffins, so we started by searching on the internet for a good recipe. We found this, and looking at the comments, we knew we had a good recipe in our hands. We changed some ingredients and quantities, and we are very pleased with the results!
We have decided to enter this picture to Snack shots: Muffin hosted by Michelle of Greedy Gourmet. Wish us luck!


1.1/2 Cups (190 gr.) flour (sifted)
1/2 Cup (100 gr.) white sugar
1/2 teaspoon (3 gr.) salt
2 teaspoons (9 gr.) baking powder
1/3 cup (80 ml.) vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 Cup (80 ml.) plain creamy yogurt
6 (90 ml.) tablespoons orange juice (freshly equeezed)
1 Cup (125 gr.) fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12 muffin cup pan or line with muffin liners.

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough yogurt to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Add orange juice. Fold in blueberries. Fill 3/4 of the muffin cups with the dough.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on wire rack and enjoy!
