triple berry muffins


My mom made these delicious muffins when I was home last weekend, and I whipped up a batch yesterday! The cinnamon adds a really nice element, and adding the sugar at the end of the mixing means the tops will have a nice little crunch.
Triple Berry Muffins (original source)
makes 20-24
adapted from Sara Leah Chase’s Open House Cookbook

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups whole milk
2 extra-large eggs, beaten
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups fresh or frozen berries w/out syrup
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tin with liners.

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (except sugar) well. In a seperate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Gradually combine without over mixing. The batter will be a little bit more liquid-y than usual at this point. Add berries ( I used blackberries, raspberries and blueberries) and sugar and gently fold into the batter. It should be thick and resemble cookie dough.

Spoon batter into muffin cups 3/4 way full. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until tops are golden brown around the edges.

    If only I had the motivation to bake! These look delicious!

    I will now be on a mission to perfect these gluten free!

    These look great! I’m going to try and make them with white whole wheat flour!

    I’m curious, 1 1/2 tablespoons seems like a lot of cinnamon, it must be a pretty dominant, yes?

      It isn’t over-powering, but adjust it if you want to! depends on your cinnamon needs πŸ™‚

    I made these muffins this afternoon! They are very sweet and yummy. Mine turned out a purplish-gray color, probably because I used some thawed mixed berries and the juices combined with the mixture, so they aren’t super pretty, but they are delish. Thanks for the recipe πŸ™‚

    Those sound delicious! I used to make a muffin similar to those when I worked as a barista in high school.’

    Just out of curiosity, what program do you use to create the text on pictures?

    These muffins looks amazing! Can’t wait to try out the recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    Can you use skim milk?

    • Kate says
      Posted August 26, 2017

      I used whole, but I imagine you could use skim milk, perhaps add a touch more.

    Just made these for last weekend at the lake house. They are delish! Thought it was a bit odd to add sugar at the end but it’s everything! Thanks for sharing!
