It has been a busy week. Didn't get the chance to bake or cook. Its good though, our stomachs needed to take a break after so many heavy meals recently.
I was thinking to bake some mixed berry stuff as I have all kinds of berries sitting in my refrigerator - I use them for making my smoothies every day. My first thought was to bake a mixed berries sandwich cake, but the heat here makes me too lazy to move, so here I come with my simple summer berry muffin recipe. Its a fast and easy bake. Hope you like it.
1. 180g all purpose flour 2. 50g sugar 3. 2 tsp baking powder 4. 1/4 tsp salt 5. 2 eggs 6. 55g butter - melted 7. 175ml fresh milk 8. 1 tsp vanilla extract 9. 1/2 tsp fresh grated lemon zest 10. 180g fresh or dried mix berries ( I mixed up with 1 ripe strawberry - cut to small cubes, some raspberries - cut to smaller cubes, some blueberries)
Steps : 1. Preheat the oven at 400F/200C 2. Sieve all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. 3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs until blended. 4. Add the melted butter, milk, vanilla and lemon zest. Stir to well combined. 5. Make a well in the dry ingredients, and pour in the egg mixture. 6. Stir the batter with a spatula just until the flour is moistened, not until smooth. 7. Fold in mixed berries. 8. Scoop the batter into the muffin cups. 10. Bake for 20~25 minutes.
