Mixed Berry Muffins πŸ“

I am a true believer of "Old is Gold!" I came across this amazing book The Muffin Lady and her basic muffin recipe is really good. As a kid, teen and young mum I read mystery, horror and classic books and now, I read lots of baking and cookbooks 😏 not only for recipes and ideas but stories of the authors too. How. why and what made them what they are or where the are in life. Everyone has a story to tell. I tweaked a little on the sugar the person I am (I like less sweet).

I like to linger on the berries way after the summer it's my way of hanging onto the bright days in fall (although I like fall, wait! Just realized I love all the seasons we're blessed with in N.A!) I have used frozen mixed berries here because it was on sale and I had to figure something for breakfast πŸ˜€ on a weekend!

4 cups all purpose flour,sifted
1½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
4 eggs
½ cup canola oil
1 cup butter,melted
1½ cup milk,room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 cups frozen mixed berries ( you can use fresh berries too!)

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Line the muffin pan with wax paper larger than the paper, cut into squares and line the pan or use extra large cupcake liners as I did since I didn't have wax paper.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Using a whisk, blend the oil, melted butter and sugar. Add eggs and continue whisking till it's well mixed. Add milk and mix again.
  • Using a spatula (I like my silicone one) fold half the flour mixture. When partly done add the remaining flour and mix well. 
  • Add the frozen berries and fold it once more.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, pour the batter into the prepared muffin pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes or when a toothpick is pricked in it, it comes out clean. 
Makes 12- 8 oz or 24- 4 oz muffins.

My family love the muffins fresh out of the oven, warm, gooey berries and coffee.

Options- substitute with the following in place of mixed berries

 Lemon-Poppy seed muffins- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice,1 teaspoon grated lemon rind, 1 teaspoon lemon emulsion and 2 tablespoons poppy seeds. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla essence, it will enhance the flavor. Add all these after the eggs.

PiΓ±a Colada muffins- 1 cup toasted coconut (you can use desiccated if you don't have fresh), 1/2 cup crushed pineapples. Add both the ingredients last after folding the flour mixture into the oil-egg mixture.

Chocolate Chip muffins- 1 cup chocolate chips, add into the mixture last after folding the flour.You can add more chocolate chips if you like 😁! I like to add chocolate pieces to make it chunky!



  1. I know you are very excited about this website and all. I don’t mean to offend you but this is not that good. Most of the space is empty and the blog content is given inside a frame which makes it boring.

  2. So first you soak your Red Wheat Berries, for 8-24 hours. You can buy Red Wheat Berries at your local health food store, often in the bulk section. And yes wheatgrass is gluten free. I too, was concerned, but after searching around and asking a licensed dietitian friend in the area, the grass itself does not contain any gluten, only the kernel, and in juicing wheatgrass you only juice the grass, so yay!
