Blackberry Muffins – The Best You’ll Taste

We’ve been out foraging blackberries again. We came back with a bumper crop and we plan on making a few sweet treats with them. First up we made blackberry muffins. In my opinion, blackberry muffins are far superior to the blueberry muffin and far more English!

  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes. Check a wooden skewer comes out cleanly (if not bake for a few minutes more).

  7. Once out of the oven, allow to cool for 5 minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.

I hope you try out this recipe for blackberry muffins. Do let me know in the comments.

Did you see my recipe for blackberry jam? We made this with the last crop of blackberries we foraged. As autumn approaches, we’ll be back out foraging at least one more crop to make jam for the winter.

Thanks for reading.

    Made them today (first muffins I’ve ever made) – delicious, as all three of us agreed. Simple and really tasty, thanks very much. I sprinkled a little demerara on top for a bit of crunch.
