Double Berry Mini Muffin Recipe
This double berry muffin recipe was one of the recipes I made while part of the Secret Recipe Club. The recipe club, is no longer a thing, but it was full of all types food bloggers. Each month you were assigned a new “secret” blog. (It’s a secret because the blog owner does not know who has been assigned to their blog until the reveal date.) On the designated day you reveal your assigned blog and the recipe you chose to make.
This Double Berry Mini Muffin recipe was my first Secret Recipe Club post. The blog assigned to me was Nettie from Moore or Less Cooking. Nettie has a ton of recipes to choose from. I browsed her site a little bit and settled on the “Easy” Category. (That shouldn’t be too much of a surprise…) I found a great recipe of hers to make, the Double Berry White Chocolate Mini Muffins, because really, who can say no to a mini muffin!
The main reasons I chose this recipe is that I happened to have fresh blueberries and blackberries on hand and it gave me another excuse to use my Babycakes Cupcake maker!! (Love that thing!)
I didn’t have all the ingredients for her muffins on hand, so I changed it up a bit (leaving out the white chocolate chips and adding a teaspoon of vanilla.) The kids have had a lot of chocolate over the last week and I wanted these to have a touch less sugar. Without the additional sugar, I thought the muffins made a wonderful mid morning and after school snack.
I was right, the kids devoured them all within a day!
Don’t they look pretty, even though they were a bit misshapen? The mini cupcake maker cooks quickly, but always leaves the muffins and cupcakes a bit misshapen. I think the wells are just a little too wide and the cupcake liners expand just a bit too much.
If you don’t happen to have both blackberries or blueberries on hand, you can replace one with the other and they come out great!
The instructions below include baking in the oven or using a cupcake maker. The mini cupcake maker cooks 8 cupcakes at a time, perfect for portion control, lol. If you want to make just one batch, the extra batter keeps in the fridge for 3 to 5 days or freezes beautifully.
