Make some yummy fresh blackberry muffins for breakfast or snack time! This easy recipe makes 16 muffins, and they'll be a hit with family and friends!

We live in an area just west of the city of Portland, Oregon. Around here, summer blackberries grow wild just about everywhere, it seems. What I don’t pick around our neighborhood or hanging over our back fence, I can pick quickly and rather inexpensively at a local U-Pick farm, as shown in the photo below!

Last week, I picked over 4 cups of wild blackberries while walking our dog Cooper (a cute corgi), around our neighborhood park and school early one morning! We love to use them for cobbler, bar cookies, scones, soda, or homemade jam, so these early ripening berries were a good find!

I decided to make some blackberry muffins using some of the ones I found in our neighborhood, and I’m excited to share this delicious recipe with you. But guess what? You can make these yummy muffins using fresh OR frozen blackberries, and I’ve included directions for both!

Let’s Make Some Blackberry Muffins!

The first thing you will need to do is preheat your oven to 400° F. and grease standard sized muffin cups (or use paper muffin liners). NOTE: This recipe make between 16 – 18 muffins, so you can use 2 muffin pans, or cook them in batches.

Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. These ingredients are flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Set the bowl aside.

Flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and baking soda are whisked in bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, sour cream, melted butter, milk, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Whisk them together until all ingredients are combined.

Add these wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Whisk (or stir) only until just combined, and the wet ingredients are incorporated into the dry.

Eggs, sour cream, etc. are mixed together, then added to dry ingredients to make muffin batter.

Prepare The Blackberries

If using FRESH blackberries: cut them in half before adding to the muffin batter.
If using FROZEN blackberries: defrost, then drain any extra liquid. Coat lightly in a little bit of flour, before adding them to the muffin batter.

Add the blackberries to the bowl of muffin batter, and fold berries gently into batter, only until combined. Be careful NOT to over mix the batter. Yes, the batter will have red streaks. Yes, the batter will be slightly lumpy and thick!

Fill The Muffin Cups

Evenly distribute the muffin batter between muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full. I used two pans lined with paper liners, because I had enough batter to make 16 muffins. Use the back of a spoon (or your clean fingers, if necessary), to level out the thick muffin batter in each cup.

The batter for the muffins is streaked with color from the blackberries.Muffin batter is placed into muffin liners, and is ready to bake!

Time To Bake The Blackberry Muffins!

Bake the blackberry muffins on a middle oven rack at 400° F. for 17-20 minutes until golden brown on top, or until a toothpick placed into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. My blackberry muffins ended up taking all 20 minutes to cook until they were done.

Once the blackberry muffins are done, remove the pans from oven, and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Be sure to let the muffins cool down for 2-3 minutes before you remove them from the muffin tin.

Here are the muffins, straight out of the oven, cooling on a wire rack.Can you see all the blackberries in the muffins? Yum.

We enjoyed the blackberry muffins served warm (not hot), with a bit of soft butter. YUM! The muffins are not overly sweet, but are filled with blackberries!

We gave several of these blackberry muffins to one of our sons who popped in for a visit, and know he will enjoy them, too! Hope you will enjoy this little taste of summer, as well! The muffins are delicious!

Have a great day, and thank you for stopping by for a visit! May you find encouragement, contentment, and joy from the people and experiences you encounter today.
