Delicious Blackberry Muffin Recipe Reviewed

Blackberry Muffin Recipe
Fresh blackberries are always an invitation to bake something delicious!  When I recently purchased some blackberries at our local farmer's market, I made Blackberry Muffins as soon as I got home.  Today, I am sharing my personal blackberry muffin recipe here so you, too, can enjoy this delicious treat. 

My recipe makes 18 muffins which seems like a lot at first glance. However, it didn't take my family long to devour these delicious muffins.  

For either of us, when we pair these muffins with coffee, we are in a breakfast feast heaven.  While I would normally say that the serving size is one muffin, in our home, the serving size is two or more muffins.  They really are that good!

The Muffin Batter & Muffin Tins 

This is a muffin recipe, not to be confused with cupcakes.  The muffin batter is thicker and won't pour like a cake batter.  I "spoon" my muffin batter into muffin tins.  I bake them in non-stick muffin tins, therefore paper liners are not required.  I do grease the non-stick tins with Crisco shortening and these muffins turn out easily.

  1. Oh yum! What a way to start the day. I love blueberries all the time, but made into muffins they would be even better. Thank you for sharing this easy recipe! Now I'll have another reason to go to the farmers market!

    1. The Farmer's Market is a weekly adventure! I never know what they will have from week to week, but I do get pretty excited when I see blackberries!

  2. Looks like a wonderful way to use all the fresh blackberries available right now!

    1. Seeing the blackberries at the Farmer's Market certainly made me rejoice. I love being able to buy fresh fruit. We are truly blessed in this nation!

  3. Hmmm, is it too late for breakfast at your house? I'll be right over for coffee and some of those lucious looking blueberry muffins. Thanks so much for sharing your homemade recipe. It sounds delicious.

    1. Excuse me, I meant to say blackberry muffins. I have always loved blackberries best of all the berry fruits, ever since I was a little kid with wild blackberry bushes growing right around my yard.

    2. I bake blueberry muffins too! No worries!!! And, it is never too late for breakfast or coffee. You would always be welcome in my home Elf. We could eat and craft the day away, and I'm sure slip in a bit of chatting too.

  4. Sylvestermouse, I have a mixed-berry cobbler recipe with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries that we love (I need to figure out how to make the batter keto-friends), and my husband is inordinately fond of. So, as you can imagine, these blackberry muffins are calling our names! I agree with you that shopping at a farmer’s market is always a delightful and delicious adventure. Thanks so much for sharing another scrumptious recipe! 💗

  5. Oh I love blackberries and these muffins sound and look sooo delicious!! I also love going to farmers markets and hubby & I go whenever we can. They are wonderful for buying fresh fruit and veg and have a great community atmosphere. Thank you for a lovely recipe!

  6. Cynthia, this looks and sounds so good. Thanks so much for the recipe - even though it's not Keto, I would make this for the family, I know they would love it.

  7. Oh Wow!! I'm loving this one Cynthia. I love blackberries and will be making these soon. These won't last very long in my house either. Thanks for the recipe.
