A simple Blueberry Strawberry muffin recipe to use fresh berries in. Perfect for guests or for any gathering.
What I really love about this recipe is the berry’s don’t fall to the bottom of the muffin. The trick is to put your muffins in a bowl and stir them will a bit of flour. The batter is rather thick and that is what helps hold them in “place”. The topping on these is what really add that flavor. Just enough sweetness to make these a great muffin. A perfect time to make these now since its strawberry and blueberry season. Fresh fruit in the muffins.
