Nutella cookies

So this might be the shortest and easiest recipe I have ever and will ever do. It's 3 ingredients, that's it.

Ingredients

280g Nutella 
140g Plain flour 
1 Egg 

So all you need to do is mix all the ingredients together until it makes a dough. Roll into evenly sized balls, place on baking trays spaced apart. Make sure to press them down slightly and place in the oven at 180c for 10 minutes. When you take them out the oven they will still be soft so you need to let them cool completely. 

And that's it, so simple but so delicious.

Blueberry Muffins

So I've made muffins before for a Easter post, click here if you want to see that. http://becksbaking.blogspot.com/2015/03/easter-muffins.html
I started running out of ideas of what to cook. I wanted to cook something involving some kind of fruit and I've always loved blueberry muffins. Admittedly they aren't my first choice of muffin when choicing but when I do I always enjoy them. 
So this is how I made mine. 

Ingredients 

300g Self raising flour 
1 tsp baking powder 
50g Butter 
90g Sugar 
2 eggs 
225ml Milk 
1 tsp Vanilla extract 
150-200g Blueberries (I used frozen) 

I measured out the flour,sugar and baking powder into a bowl. I then added the butter,milk, 2 eggs (slightly beaten) and the 1 tsp of vanilla extract then whisked it all together. Just until it is all mixed together (it does not matter if there is lumps of flour). I then added the Blueberries and gave it a quick mix together. 
I then filled the 12 muffin cases 3/4 full and placed them in the oven for 20 minutes then turned the whole tray round and do for another 5 minutes to get the right colour. 
Finally just leave to cool.
