Foodiva's Kitchen: Very Berry Blueberry Oreo Muffins

Very Berry Blueberry Oreo Muffins


My two finds this week were probably not terribly exciting nor original. However, discovering them at the same time and in an unplanned manner at the store seem to imply that I've been living in a well and haven't ventured out that much. Both are oh dear, processed items - Oreos with a blueberry-icecream filling, and mixed berry tea granules.



Blueberry Oreos & Mixed Berry Tea Granules 

Now I'm not saying that processed foods and the Foodiva's Kitchen do not ever cross each other's universe (oh noooooo... far from it!), it's just that I try to steer more towards fresh stuff that actually look like food, you know. OK, to be fair, I do love good chocolate and that must have gone through some form of treatment, for sure. Oh well, no point in either beating myself up or being self-righteous about this. I admit that when I'd typed out the ingredients for my muffins below, it was glaringly obvious that the only fresh, unprocessed items in there were the two eggs! LOL. Hypocrite.

Very Berry Blueberry Oreo Muffins
Ingredients:
100g butter
200g sugar
2 large eggs
250ml milk
225g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
100g mixed berry fruit tea granules/powder
12 pieces” Blueberry Ice Cream” Oreo biscuits

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a muffin tray with some softened butter.
2. Sift the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
3. Whisk the butter and sugar in a separate bowl until it becomes light in colour and airy.
4. Add eggs one at a time, then add the milk gradually, alternating with the flour mixture. Fold in the berry fruit tea granules.
5. Scoop a tablespoonful of the mixture and drop them into the bottom of the muffin tray. Place one Oreo biscuit on top of the batter and cover up to ¾ full with batter.
6. Bake for 25 minutes until a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out clean.



Oreos in the middle, then topped with more batter.





Topped with dried figs. Yes, I had a processed berry overload.
I'm so uninspired today - I'm done.
