Bursting Blackberry Muffins

Blackberries are now in season and we bought 2 baskets for a mere HK$10.00 (US$1.30).  I basket went fresh from our fingers to our tummies, and the other found its way into these muffins.

Ingredients :

  • 60g butter
  • 40g castor sugar
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 1 egg (best left at room temperature)
  • 150g cake flour (you can use plain flour if you wish, but the texture will be slightly heavier)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (aka bicarbonate of soda)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 70g berry yogurt (I used mixed berry yogurt this time)
  • 1 small basket of black berries (as you add these in right at the end, the amount you put is really up to your personal liking) (I think we put about 20 berries in for the above portion)

Blackberry Muffin_06Add eggs, one at a time, to the creamed butter and sugare mixture and mix together.

Blackberry Muffin_07Add in the vanilla essence and mix together.

Blackberry Muffin_09Add in milk and yougurt and mix together.
