Multi Berry Muffin Recipe

Blueberry MuffinsBlueberry Muffins

This basic muffin recipe is a multipurpose berry muffin recipe that gives you the ability to create several different types of muffins including blue berry muffins, strawberry muffins, and blackberry muffins with the same recipe.  This recipe makes batter for 12 muffins.

In my house this is one of those Sunday morning recipes that I will whip up when the family wants a big country breakfast. 

I will serve these homemade muffins with some other family favorites including cheesy scrambled eggs, buttery grits, and crispy and crunch bacon.

Before we get into the recipe here is a refresher course on selecting the best berries for use in your muffins recipe. 

Blueberries and blackberries should always be dark in color, free of mold, plump, unweathered, and wrinkle free. 

Great tasting strawberries and raspberries should be bright in color, free of mold, and uncrushed.  Additionally, only buy strawberries with hulls still attached. That way you get the freshest berries possible.

Recipe For Berry Muffins

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 cup berries of choice
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

Cooking Instructions:

Before starting muffin batter go ahead and preheat your oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit. Lightly grease your muffin tins and set aside.

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine and stir well milk, egg and vegetable oil.
  2. In another medium mixing bowl, combine and stir together shifted flour, baking powder and sugar. Next combine milk mixture with flour mixture and stir well enough to dampen the flour.
  3. Lastly, gently mix in your berries of choice (blue berries, raspberries, strawberries or blackberries).
  4. Finally, go ahead and spoon muffin batter into prepared muffin pan or tins, filling to about 2/3 capacity. Bake muffins for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
