  2. Add the vanilla, milk, and egg and beat with a fork until well combined.
  3. Add the sugar, salt, cinnamon (optional), and flour and beat again until smooth.
  4. Gently fold half the blueberries in the batter and cook for 30 seconds.
  5. Remove from the microwave, top with the remaining blueberries and cook for a further 1 minute 10 seconds to 1 minute 50 seconds, depending on your microwave power.
