Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour, be careful not to overmeasure
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup vegetable oil, or canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • 2 cup berries, fresh or frozen (I used raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 F. Butter your muffin tin pan.
  • Combine 3 cups of flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk 2 eggs. Add sugar to the eggs and mix. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1/2 cup oil, and vanilla. Whisk well together.
  • Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix just until the ingredients come together. Be careful not to overmix. Over-mixing causes muffins to be tough. Mix until all of the flour is off the sides and bottom of the bowl and is distributed throughout the dough.
  • Very gently fold in 1 + 1/2 cups of berries. Spoon into prepared muffin tins, filling to the top. Press the remaining berries into the tops of every muffin.
  • Bake at 425F for 5 minutes. Then, reduce the temperature to 375F and continue to bake for 25-28 minutes until they are a light golden brown. Check by a toothpick insert that they are fully baked.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes and enjoy! They are always best if you enjoy the day you made them, but they could also be warmed up later.
