triple berry muffins

the great chicago food tour

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!

Kacia Hosmer says · 03.06.13

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

heatherbhodge says · 03.07.13

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?

Kate says · 03.07.13

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

heatherbhodge says · 03.09.13

Nightingale says · 03.07.13

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?

Can you use skim milk?

Kate says · 08.26.17

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

Chechena-Jireh Barnett says · 08.26.17

Yum….. Trying these this weekend.

Ali B says · 08.29.19

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!
