- Special equipment: 2 1/4-inch heart-shape silicone mold
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Then add buttermilk, egg, and oil. Whisk until your batter is smooth and well blended. Fold in blueberries.
