Quiet house, gentle rain, baking muffins at 5am

These are moist and fruity with a mixture of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.

I woke up at 4:30 with strawberries on my mind, consumed with thoughts of fresh muffins for breakfast. With a large pot of espresso-made iced coffee to sustain me, I gathered up the little bags of frozen berries left from last summer’s crops, and baked a double recipe of these 3-berry muffins. The house is peaceful, with a gentle rain falling, and everyone still asleep. When the family wakes up there will be a basket of fresh muffins on the table, and then, hopefully, I’ll sneak upstairs and take a nap.

3-Berry Muffins

Combine the wet ingredients:

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/4 c. milk, warmed
  • 1 c. melted butter

Add the wet ingredients to the combined dry ingredients:

  • 3 c. flour (I use part whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1-1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. cinnamon

Stir in the berries:

  • 2 c. mix of blueberries, raspberries and chopped strawberries

Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Makes 2 dozen muffins.
