Triple Berry Muffins

Thursday 13 August 2020

Normally I would be sharing a lovely iced and baked cake with you today, as it is my birthday.  I ususally make myself my Raspberry Celebration Cake every year. It is my all time favourite birthday cake to make. However Photo Bucket is still holding my photos hostage over there and I can't seem to be able to get any answers from them. So this year on my Birthday you get Muffins.  Triple Berry Muffins.

They are exceedingly delicious however and do have berries in them, so I hope you will forgive me!

They have not one, not two, but three delicious berries in them.  Blueberries, raspberries and chopped strawberries, and I can assure you they are GORGEOUS!

It is a small batch recipe.  The original recipe from one of Ina Garten's books made 18 muffins. We cannot eat 18 muffins, and because I was using frozen fruit I didn't want to have any muffins to freeze.

In her recipe she adds the sugar with the berries.  The original recipe is one from a friend of hers and she says her friend forgot to add the sugar and added it at the end with the berries. I didn't want to do that.

I added it the conventional way.  Call me a traditionalist. I am one for sure.

These are BEAUTIFUL muffins.  Light and just sweet enough  . . . moist . . .

Studded with the tartness of sweet fruits  . . .

Perfect for breakfast or coffee break or elevensies, or tea time  . . .  well, perfect for any time really!

And most especially a wonderful way to kick start your morning on your Birthday!

I think I have found a new favourite here.  She used fresh berries, but I had frozen ones I wanted to use and they worked perfectly.

We both really, really enjoyed these. In fact, Todd ate two right away and that is highly unsual for him!

It is so stinking hot here . . .  and humid. I hate heat and humidity combined. Yes, I am whining. Blah . . .  it sucks away all of my energy.  Any baking etc. needs to be done early, early, early.
