This recipe is quite an old one that I've had tucked away. It makes 9 regular muffins or approx. 18 cupcakes. NB, if making this recipe as cupcakes, reduce cooking time to just 15-20 mins as they are smaller and cook quicker!

  2. Place flour in a bowl and mash in the margarine using a fork. Stir in the sugar, eggs milk and essence and beat to a smooth consistency.
  3. Add the blueberries and mix gently so as not to break them open. Gently stir in the conserve, just enough to make a marbled effect.

  5. Leave to stand for a few minutes then cool on a wire rack.
