Blueberry Lemon Microwave Muffin
Tastes like a baked muffin, but this one's prepped and baked in the microwave in about 5 minutes.
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) milk
- ½ tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) flour
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) baking powder
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon zest
Place the butter in the Ceramic Egg Cooker and microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 15–30 seconds, or until melted.
Add the egg yolk, milk, and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
Next add the flour, sugar, and baking powder and mix until the ingredients are incorporated. Fold in the blueberries and lemon zest.
Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 1 minute or until the top of the muffin springs back when touched. If underdone, microwave for additional intervals of 15 seconds. Eat the muffin directly from the cooker, or run the releasing end of the Cake Tester & Releaser around the outer edges and invert onto a plate.
