Mason Jar Blueberry Muffins

Hello darlings,

Lately, I've been in love with Mason jars! They are the chocolate of the DIY world, and are just so versatile! In need of a vase? Cutlery holder? Sewing kit? Jam case? Candle holder? You name it, a mason jar can help with it. I know it seems a little too good to be true, but I sincerely can't get enough of them. :)

As you may or may not already know, I have a mild addiction to blueberry muffins, and so it was only going to take so long before I tried making one in a mason jar! I topped it up with strawberry yoghurt, and actually had it on the side while eating the muffin. It was so good, you'd just have to try it for yourself! Now, on to the recipe.

Total Time: 35 minutes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 10 jars
Level: Easy


  • 1 Duncan Hines Blueberry Streusel Muffin Mix
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • Strawberry Yoghurt (of your favorite flavor!)

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Grease mason jars with butter or oil.
  • Rinse and drain blueberries thoroughly with cold water.
Mix(instructions also on the muffin box):
  • Empty the muffin mix to the bowl. Stir in the eggs, water and oil, and mix, mix, mix(until moistened)!
  • Fold rinsed and drained blueberries gently into the batter.
  • Spoon the batter into the mason jars, fill 2/3 of the jar.
  • Place the mason jars in a baking pan, and place the pan in the center of the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or more, until golden brown. (Dip in toothpick/fork, if it comes out dry, then you're all set).
  • Cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Spread strawberry yoghurt over the top of the mason jars. And you're all done.

Bon Appetit,

Feel The Rain

"Do not be angry at the rain, it simply does not know how to fall upwards." - Vladimir Nabokov

Hello, darlings! The other day I was determined to go exploring. It was yet another rainy day (I hate the rain sometimes, I must say) in Seattle, but I didn't let that stop me haha. Since the weather was warm, I was able to rock this maxi dress, which I so happen to love, and a comfortable pair of sandals (I could afford to wear sandals because it was not a heavy pour. Yay!)

  I got to spend the rest of the day with my brother, who ended up taking most of these pictures lol. We walked around downtown Seattle, saw World War Z at a cinema, and got to catch up. :)

 It got a little chilly towards the end of the day, which is why I have a leather jacket on. :D

                                                                  Starbucks - Cha-ching!

    I'm yet to go shopping at Pike's Place, which as a "Seattleite" is unacceptable. My brother gave me this incredible idea the other day (yes, I have a lot of siblings lol), and I'm thinking of starting an International Food series, where I try recipes from different parts of the world. I am so excited about this, as there are so many recipes I've wanted to try out for the longest time. This will be give me a great opportunity to not only make some cultural entrees, but also go shopping at Pike's Place. If you have any recipe/country recommendations, please do tell. :)
