  • 2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup (165g) brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely grated Kent pumpkin
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150g fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg

STEP 1 

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12-hole, 1/3-cup (80ml) muffin pan with paper cases.

STEP 2 

Combine the flour, sugar, pumpkin, cinnamon and blueberries in a large bowl. Whisk the egg, oil and buttermilk in a jug. Add the egg mixture to the pumpkin mixture in the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined (don’t overmix).
