Blueberry Muffins

The secret of this recipe is that you mix up the batter the night before and leave it to rest overnight, it shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes from weighing up and getting the batter into the fridge. It’s a real store cupboard treat and if you don’t regularly buy fresh blueberries then have a bag of frozen ones in the freezer.
