Homemade Muffins Recipe

What do you do with a leftover cup of fresh blueberries? You make homemade muffins, of course! Here's the easy recipe.
The Author's Homemade Blue-Razz-Banana-Berry Muffins

What do you do with the last of your Mother's Day berries and a stray half-banana? Well if you're me, you make homemade muffins, of course!

On Mother's Day I was blessed with a generous supply of chocolate-covered strawberries as well as plenty of fresh blueberries and raspberries, a gift from my daughter-in-law. The strawberries are gone (and oh, they were delicious!), but about a cup of berries remained in the fridge this morning, so I decided to find a simple muffin recipe and use them up.

It took just a few minutes to find a "Best Ever Muffins" recipe, so I gathered the ingredients and went to work. Copyright laws don't allow me to publish the complete recipe here, but this link will take you right to it. It's easy and you probably have all the ingredients on hand (2 cups flour, 3 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 3/4 cup white sugar, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup oil).

The batter went together quickly in the usual muffin-making method (gently stir mixed wet ingredients into mixed dry ingredients). Then I added the berries (about a cup). I also had half of a banana in the refrigerator leftover from a PB&B sandwich a few days ago, so I coarsely chopped that and added it, too. The muffin pan was ready and waiting, so I filled it up.

About 25 minutes-of-baking later (400 degrees), then 10 minutes of cooling, it was time to give the muffins a try. The verdict? Delicious!

I'm not sure why I don't bake muffins more often, but I think I will now. I always have fruit around and just might try chopping and adding some of the frozen mixture that I keep on hand for making smoothies. And of course there are always raisins (hubby loves raisins), grated carrots and pineapple, chocolate chips, or whatever happens to float my boat on any given craving-muffins morning.

Do you make homemade muffins? What's your favorite kind? 


  1. We're going to have a fire tonight and now I know what I'm going to do with any left over apples and cherries. A very nice easy muffin recipe. As always Susan you make me hungry. Thanks!

    1. Oh, I love the idea of using leftover apples and cherries in muffins! That sounds delicious and would work really well in this recipe. And hey, your awesome recipes always make me hungry, too, so I guess we're even! :)
