Juicy Blackberry Muffins

It's the start of berry season and I picked up some blackberries at the store. I love baking muffins with berries cuz they're so refreshing, especially in the warmer months. These were adapted a recipe in one of my Muffin Books with a few adjustments like using buttermilk instead of regular. I love how moist these muffins were from the blackberries and the lemon zest added just the perfect amount of citrus flavor!

Ingredients: (6 muffins)

1 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/2 c buttermilk
1 c fresh blackberries


1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 6 muffin cups with paper liners.

2. In a bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and zest.

3. In another bowl, stir together the egg, butter and buttermilk. Add to dry ingredients, stir just until moistened. Fold in berries.

4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake 25-30 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin come out clean.
