Buttermilk Mixed-Berry Muffins

"A sweet and healthy breakfast or tea-time treat. A delicious way to use up berries that are nearly done. The whole wheat flour isn't necessary, but I think it adds a nice flavour."

Ready In:
12 muffins




  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 12 - 2 3/4 x 1 1/2 inch muffin cups.
  • In a large measuring cup or bowl whisk together the egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla extract.
  • In another large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange zest. Gently fold in the berries. With a rubber spatula fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir only until the ingredients are combined. Do not over mix the batter or tough muffins will result.
  • When filling the muffin cups, trying using two spoons to prevent the batter from dropping outside the cup. Place in the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pan.

  1. Fantastic muffins, Muffin Head. I used blueberries, and added the zest of one lemon for an extra zing. These are so tasty and they have a moist tender crumb. I like the use of both white and whole wheat flours. I used white whole wheat flour, which has the same nutritional benefits of red whole wheat flour (the usual), but a bit lighter in flavor, color, and texture. Thanks for giving my Monday morning a bright start!
  2. Just made these this morning for DH and his training partners. Instead of whole wheat flour, I used 2 C. all-purpose and added 1/2 C. of grapenuts for texture and flavor. YUMMMMM was the response as they disappeared off the plate! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, I'll be making this again!!!!Awesome!


I LOVE to Bake. I do it to relax, be creative, and procrastinate with school work. On average, I bake twice a week. It's an addiction. In the summer though, I can bake every day and I do. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
