So the other day I was craving blueberry muffins, but didn't really wanna do big batch of them. I figured I could just make one in the microwave and be happy with it. And that's what happened. Luckily, FiveHeartHome had a nice little recipe that was easy to make into a gluten free one. Below, you can see the gluten free version of it.
Gluten Free Microwave Blueberry Muffin
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons gluten free flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup milk, at room temperature
2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Scant 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
Coarse sparkling sugar, optional garnish
1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and baking powder until thoroughly, completely combined, with no streaks of any ingredients remaining. Blend in milk, butter, and vanilla until batter is smooth. Stir in blueberries and pour batter into a 14-ounce (or larger) microwave-safe mug with straight sides. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar, if desired.
2. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, or until cake is done to your liking. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
This is super easy to make, like all mug cakes/microwave pastries, and I think it tastes amazing with some vanilla ice cream and frozen blueberries. I definitely recommend that you try this, right now. I'd imagine you could make this with any berries, as well as with tiny apple pieces and cinnamon, so that it becomes a seasonally themed one. I haven't tried that, but it should be that easy to change up. If you have tried that, let me know if it can be done.
Have you done any microwave baking, and how did you like it? Let me know in the comments!
Today, I'm writing all the weekend's posts because I plan on not touching my laptop since we're on the road again. It's also very relaxing to get some time off from the computer screen, since my hobbies, studies and work all make me use laptops every day. And since we're going to see family, I obviously choose that over devices. But, don't want to abandon you guys so I'm prepping the blog for the few coming days.
And I will do crepes for a TV snack soon. Because that's what adults do. You know, the ones who are still children inside. Yeah, that's me.
Anyways, I'm gonna go now to get the rest of the things done, and I will be still posting stuff on Instagram (and other social media channels) the best I can. I will see you all tomorrow in another post, so stay tuned for that!
Have a lovely day ♥
