Berry Best Muffins

Berry Best Muffins

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine - melted
  • 3/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (omit if using salted butter)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries

  • For The Topping:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar - packed
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine - softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
These muffins came out fluffy, light and full of berry flavor. They were sweet, but not overly so. The streusel topping added the slightest gentle crutch. I used frozen berries. I added them to the batter while still partially frozen so they wouldn't discolor the batter too much. (They still did a little.) The only change I made was to add about 1/4 teaspoon orange zest to the batter. A little citrus brings out the flavor of almost all berries, particularly raspberries and blueberries. I completely endorse these muffins. (Recipe submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in October 2013.)
