Ahhhh yes, to relax after crafting and sewing for the Sweet Tea Challenge, at Thistlewood Farms, I think I'll enjoy a summer berry muffin and some iced tea ! The pink depression glass pitcher belonged to my late mother-in-law. By using a glass plate, I can see the pretty napkin that I made for the challenge. Come on over, for I have enough to share!
Here's my submission that I made for the challenge, and you can see how easy this project is by visiting my previous post here. You can also see all the submissions for the Thistlewood Sweet Tea Challenge there, too.
Summer Berry Muffins, adapted from Kitchen Scoops
I had to share the recipe for these muffins because they are so good! The batter was sturdy enough for the berries, and they didn't sink. I will be using this lovely recipe again, which reminded me of a moist, vanilla pound cake.
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup plus 6 teaspoons granulated sugar, divided use (I used Sparkling Sugar for sprinkling on top)
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
½ cup melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup fresh strawberries, capped and quartered (I used raspberries)
1 cup fresh blueberries, stemmed
1 cup fresh blackberries (I needed to chop, as they were large)
1. Center an oven rack and preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. In a medium bowl combine all but about 2 tablespoons of flour with the baking powder, salt and ½ cup sugar. In another bowl combine milk, eggs, butter and vanilla. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry just until mixed. Sprinkle the remaining flour over berries and toss to coat. Fold berries into batter.
3. Spoon batter into 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of the remaining sugar over the top of each muffin. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until muffins are light golden brown. Muffins will not test done with a wooden pick because of fresh berries. Allow to cool 5 minutes before removing. Serve as desired or remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store muffins in a tin or glass sealed container (plastic will make the muffins sticky) for up to 3 days.
