Tidbit Tuesday~Tasty Blackberry Muffins

After the fun last week when picking blackberries and blueberries at the farm, I went looking for a blackberry recipe.

In the Molly Lou house, we LOVE muffins and we LOVE blackberries, so the Tasty Blackberry Muffin recipe is perfection!
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup vanilla yogurt
½ cup spreadable cream cheese
1 cup sugar
½ cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 oz package of fresh blackberries, cut in half

Position rack in center of oven and Pre-heat to 400°F.
Grease one standard 1 dozen muffin pan and one ½ dozen pan or line with paper muffin cups.(baking spray works well)
Combine the flours, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, cream cheese, sugar, butter and vanilla until smooth.
Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix just until moistened. Do not over-mix, this will cause the muffins to become too dense. The batter does not need to be smooth.
Add the berries, folding just enough to disperse them, again mix as little as possible (If you are using frozen berries, coat them lightly in flour first.)
Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups and place in the oven.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean, approx. 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before removing from the pan. If not serving hot, let cool on a rack.
Serve quickly, preferably within a few hours of baking.

YUM-O! Enjoy. Happy Tuesday!

  1. I love blackberries & muffins too! Especially hot out of the oven & smeared with a little butter. YUM!

    I love blackberry cobbler too - with vanilla ice cream! We'll need to try & set a "date" soon for the munchkins.

  2. Blackberries are one of the best parts of summer! I bake muffins at least once a month and this recipe sounds delightful! Thanks for sharing. Now I can't wait to get to baking! Have a great week = )

  3. I was looking for a muffin recipe for this week! Genius! thanks, friend!

  4. Hi my sweet, have I ever told you my dark dirty secret? I can't bake to save my life. I'm SERIOUS!!! For some reason baking from scratch and I just do not get along....but I adore you for this recipe because Matt LOVES blackberries, and my baby sister is a chef, so I will default to her and get her to make these yummies this summer with fresh berries. YAY!! Hugs to you!! xoxox Hope you had the bestest anniversary!

  5. Oh, these sound incredible. I love blueberry muffins..... I love blackberries even more than I love blueberries..... clearly, I MUST try blackberry muffins.
