Sugar-Crusted Raspberry-Blueberry Muffins

I hadn’t planned on posting this weekend, but here’s what happened.

I woke up at 5:00 am Saturday morning and couldn’t get back to sleep.

And instead of being productive, and say, starting housework or laundry, I decided to bake these:

Why?  Because I was hungry, I had all the ingredients, and I hadn’t yet had enough caffeine to talk myself into cleaning the bathrooms.  Also, I was irritated I actually had a morning to sleep in and couldn’t do it.

Baked goods make me feel better.

Recipe: Sugar-Crusted Raspberry-Blueberry Muffins


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup raspberries
  • 3/4 cup blueberries


  1. In a medium bowl, combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and combine.
  2. In a second bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and vanilla.
  3. Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined; the batter will be lumpy.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Toss the berries with the remaining flour in a bowl. Gently fold the berry mixture into the batter.
  6. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full and sprinkle the batter with the remaining sugar.
  7. Bake at 400 for 15 to 17 minutes; makes 12 muffins.

    I happened to have black raspberries and blueberries on hand, googled a muffin recipe and came up with this one — and they were wonderful!! Didn’t have or use chocolate chips, and substituted demerara sugar for granulated white sugar, and they made a terrific start to this 4th of July! thank you for posting the recipe – simple, quick, and delicious.

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
