Blackberry Muffins

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.



                             Blackberry Muffins

   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
minutes.


Bake at 325° for 20 minutes.

Makes 22 muffins
