Foodie Fridays - Air-baked Blueberry Muffins

Just the other day, I was doing some groceries shopping at the neighbourhood supermarket and saw some beautiful fresh blueberries.  I couldn't resist taking 2 packets and placing them into my shopping basket.  Back home I was thinking whether to bake a blueberry cake, cupcakes, muffins or simply just pop them into the mouth enjoying the fruit.  Ah~~ the Baking Bugs won and won.  Plus the thought of baking using my latest kitchen gadget, Philips Avance XL Airfryer, its just too much fun to resist.

I am using a recipe that uses the oven to bake the muffins, I set the same timing as indicated in the recipe on the airfryer and they turned out beautiful.  Of course I have to admit I was a little bit worried and opened the basket 15mins into baking to check (and of course to take photos).  They tasted as good as it look!  

Till the next Foodie Fridays post, have fun baking and cooking!
