Blackberry Muffins...

We have an overabundance of blackberries this year, so I am trying different recipes. Wanted to post this one because it's really tasty. You could also substitute raspberries or other juicy berries.

Blackberry Muffins

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar (or a little more if the blackberries aren't sweet)
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries

Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
Combine milk and vanilla extract. Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
Add to creamed butter/sugar alternately with milk/vanilla until well mixed.
Fold in blackberries.

Fill greased or paper-lined muffins cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired.

Bake at 375� for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
If not using muffin liners, cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.

Yield: 18 muffins

Thanks for posting! I make raspberry muffins from time to time since I have two bushes in my backyard, always looking for a good recipe!

RE: Blackberry Muffins...

I have to buy blackberries, but I think I would like to try this recipe - I've never had blackberry muffins, and my muffin pan is underused.

Thanks for posting!

lpink, am planning to try this with raspberries next.

Lars, these are pretty simple, but very tasty. They go especially well with a cup of coffee. I had never used blackberries in a muffin recipe and was pleasantly surprised. They also freeze well and taste fresh when thawed and re-heated in the toaster oven for a few mins. .

What do you do about the seeds?

RE: Blackberry Muffins...

^^ Nothing, honestly haven't noticed them in the muffins. Just asked hubby and he says he didn't notice the seeds either.

Oh! Well that's good to know. I love blackberry pie, but the pits are the pits!

Maybe some blackberry types are seedier than others? I picked some earlier and just now ate a few to test them specifically for seeds. I didn't notice many seeds at all. So maybe taste your berries before you bake with them, just to make sure you don't end up with seedy muffins you hate.

Yes, blackberries vary in their "seediness" depending on variety but also very much depending on growing conditions. Same with raspberries. Also vary in taste! The frozen ones you can buy are kind of middle of the road in terms of seeds.
