Summerberry Muffin


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.


Ingredients :

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.


  1. What a nice mixed of berries in this muffin! If only I can grow some berries here.

  2. hahaha... I know I know, berries are superb expensive in Singapore and Malaysia. If I hv made this muffin in Malaysia, I would hv gone bankrupt!
