Blackberry Muffins

I'm addicted to muffins, especially warm out of the oven.  Since I still had blackberries in my freezer from this past summer, I decided to use them up and make some blackberry muffins.  The blackberries I used are wild ones that we picked near our home, if you are using the giant ones that stores sell, you might want to cut them in half.


Ingredients

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon milk
1 cup sugar
8 Tbsp warm melted butter (1 stick)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups blackberries, you can use frozen blackberries, defrost and drain them first.

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a 12 muffin pan or line with paper muffin cups.  Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, sour cream, milk, sugar, butter and vanilla.  Combine the wet mixture with the dry mixture and mix together with a few light strokes, just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Add the berries. Do not overmix or muffins will not be fluffy.  Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake 17-20 minutes

Ooooooh! How pretty do they look?? I love that gorgeous swirl of blue. I bet they're soooo delicious, too! They look moist and so tasty. Great idea, using the blackberries - I have never seen blackberry muffins before.
