A much cooler morning with less humidity today which I took advantage of and made a quick batch of blackberry muffins. The mellow hint of cinnamon leads you into the tart burst of the blackberries. It is a nice way to start the morning.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
2 cups blackberries (fresh or frozen)
Cream together butter and sugar in a medium sized bowl. Add in eggs and
milk. Mix together dry ingredients in a small bowl and gradually add into
butter mixture. Gently fold in blackberries last and spoon into muffin cups
until they are 2/3 full.
Optional - sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top after baking for 10
Bake at 325° for 20 minutes.
Makes 22 muffins
