Blackberry Muffin Recipe

New Recipe for Blackberry Muffins!

I am always trying out new muffin recipes and this one has become my new favorite.

If you are not a great fan of blackberries (or can’t get them) don’t worry you can substitute just about anything else in place!

Blueberries ~ Cranberries ~ Strawberries ~ Chocolate Chips ~ broccoli~ like whatever floats your muffin tins!

I must confess I am obsessed with my Jumbo Muffin pan lately (it’s the same one I used in my Bananas Foster Cupcakes video- if you haven’t seen that masterpiece…umm….Hello!??)

The streusel topping for muffins is something I always have a bag of in my freezer; and you may like to get in that habit too.

It’s so nice to just grab a handful of streusel to throw on top of pretty much anything you are baking!

So if efficiency is up your alley be sure to multiply the streusel recipe below by 4X and store the excess in the freezer in a ziploc for up to 6 months!

This recipe can easily be VEGANIZED so be sure to read all the way to bottom!

  3. Fold in the blackberries
  4. Scoop the muffin batter into greased or paper lined muffin tins.
  5. Top with 1- 2 tablespoons of frozen streusel (frozen streusel is better to prevent the butter from melting in the oven)

  7. The Jumbos may take close to 35 minutes total and the smaller muffins will be closer to 22-25 minutes- You will know when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs not raw batter.

  1. Hi Gretchen, can I add chocolate chips instead? If I want to make this into double chocolate muffins, how much cocoa to add to the recipe?

    Thanks in advance

  2. Hey Gretchen. Tried this today, with chocolate chips in place of berries, tasted absolutely fab…thanks so much. I had a couple of issues though. Would you know why all the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom.of the muffins? Also why the tops of the muffins did not dome and kind of crack properly like a muffin should. Please note I did not use the streusel. Thank you so much for all your help

    1. Hi Kay, Some people will toss the add ins (like chips or berries) with flour before adding to the batter to avoid them sinking, I don’t actually do this and I have not had that problem, so maybe that would help you. AS for the domes, mine did not dome as much as a tighter, denser (often times drier) muffin will… but I like this style of muffin much better it is softer, lighter more cakelike and why it wont dome as the ones I mentioned would. Also overfilling the cupcake liners will prohibit proper doming, CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO

  3. Hi Gretchen, sorry a silly question, I was wondering if brown sugar instead of regular sugar would make the muffins even more softer? Or will it create a problem with the doming?
    Thank you very much for all your patience
