Today I draw inspiration from these delicious blueberry muffins to explain in detail all the tricks to make perfect muffins. The muffins are the Anglo-Saxon tradition treats small and soft, usually rich in fresh or dried fruit but also chocolate. I do not prepare them often, because I enjoy more to make pies and cakes complex, but at home they are very loved by Gianluca, that would eat them every day for breakfast. Every day, Obviously, to a different taste.

The key thing, Once ready the three bowls, It is put together by mixing the ingredients as possible: pour the liquid mounted on the dates and a small butter mixed with a spoon or a fork. Then add the powder and simply stir with a wooden spoon. Two or three laps and street, into cups. Know that most stir or mounted muffins, and less swell in the oven. So watch.
