The Berry Best Muffins
Recipe type: Breakfast
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups and 1 tbsp all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1-14 oz package frozen mixed berries, thawed and strained
  • For the Streusel:
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners.
  2. In a stand mixer or with a hand beater, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating to fully incorporate each one before adding the vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, the baking powder, and the salt. Add this in 3 stages to the egg mixture, beating until just moist. Add the milk to the batter and beat slowly until just combined.
  4. In a small bowl, dust the berries with 1 tbsp of flour. Gently fold the berries into the batter.
  5. For the Streusel: Combine the butter, brown and white sugars, and flour in a small bowl, using your clean fingers to crumble it all together.
  6. Distribute the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups. Top with the streusel.
  7. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
