Brilliant Brunch: Blackberry Surprise Muffins

Print Friendly and PDF

I love how easy it is to find the exact type of recipe you want to bake on the internet.  The problem arises, of course, when you make something really delicious and everyone wants it again.  That might not seem like a problem, but when you can't find that recipe you swore you had bookmarked, or at the very least, emailed yourself in a burst of inspiration, it becomes a major problem.

And that is EXACTLY what happened when we went to make these muffins.  Mom had made these muffins once; they were a huge hit last summer and no one could stop talking about them.  But then, when she wanted to make more, or I wanted to recreate them at home, we ran into some problems.

It didn't help the only thing I could remember was that there were blackberries inside and a crumb topping.  Mom could only remember that she put the blackberries in the middle of the muffin and pressed down lightly, so the blackberry was right in the center.  Well, after much fruitless searching, we found it!  I was thrilled (so was everyone else).  And now, I'm blogging all about it so we never go through that again!

Blackberry Surprise Muffins (adapted from here)
Serves:  12 (12 muffins)

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries

Crumb Topping:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease the muffin tin you will be baking in and set aside.  Prepare the batter:  In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.  Make a well in the center and add the egg, melted butter, yogurt, and milk.  Stir until evenly moistened, taking care not to overmix.  Reserve 12 blackberies and carefully fold the rest into the batter.  Spoon the batter into the muffin cups (about 1/2 - 2/3rds of the way full).  Place one berry on the top of each muffin and lightly press down until it is almost submerged.  Then, make the crumb topping by stirring together the sugar, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter.  Drop small amounts of the crumb over each muffin.  Bake about 25 - 35 minutes until the muffins are golden brown, and a toothpick tester comes out clean. 

If you don't want to serve these right away, let them cool and then store them in an airtight container for up to a week.

Until the next time my oven is on...
