Summer Berry Muffins from the Dallas Morning News Taste Section

This week I chose the muffin recipe in the Dallas Morning News. I'm actually a few days late posting this one. I hope to have another recipe on Wednesday.
My wife made these muffins today and we delivered some to two different families.

Summer Berry Muffins

2 1/2 C flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C + 6 tsp sugar, divided
1 C whole milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 C butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
1 C fresh strawberries, quartered
1 C fresh blueberries
1 C fresh blackberries

preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a medium bowl:
baking powder
1/2 C sugar

In another bowl:

Gently stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until mixed.
Fold berries into batter

Spoon batter into 24 paper lined cups in muffin tins.
Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of remaining sugar over the top of each muffin.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
Muffins will not test done with a toothpick because of the fresh berries.
Allow them to cool 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tins.
Remove paper lined muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!


  1. I love the recipes in the DMN- how did I miss this one?? Terry, I am so glad to see your pictures of these gorgeous muffins- you and your wife did a beautiful job! Thanks for sharing this summer-perfect recipe- I'm going to send it to my daughter- they got in a ton of strawberries from their co-op yesterday. :)

    Love, Joy

    1. I'm glad you had the opportunity to get the recipe. My wife was amazed at the amount of fruit in the recipe, but they turned out perfectly. They were beautiful and delicious!
