If you have never made your own muffin batter, then follow this recipe for a real treat. It really is quite simple. With a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry you can whip up these moist and light muffins in no time. Knock the socks off the family this weekend:)
These buttermilk muffins will be a favorite! Add your favorite selection of fresh fruit to the batter to make them over the top delicious. If your feeling extra fancy you can also add some mini chocolate chips….so yummy !
To make these muffins a nice size, I used two Wilton’s jumbo sized muffin pans. I also lined the pans with jumbo size muffin papers. You can make these a traditional size using a standard size muffin pan, just be sure to reduce the cooking time.

You will need:
4 cups of flour
1 cup of granulated sugar
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 1/4 cups of buttermilk
6 tablespoons of butter; melted
One pint of fresh blueberries; rinsed
6 ounces of fresh raspberries; rinsed
1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips
Several tablespoons of coarse sugar crystals for sprinkling over the top
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
Line muffin pans with muffin papers. (I made 12 jumbo sized muffins using two Wilton’s pans, this recipe will make 24 standard size muffins)
Whisk all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk and eggs. Whisk in the melted butter.
Add the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix with a wooden spoon. Do not over mix! Be gently and mix until just combined.
Separate the batter evenly into two separate bowls. To one bowl you can add the blueberries, and to the other you can add the raspberries and the chocolate chips. Give each bowl a quick mix and divide batter amongst the muffin pans.
Bake for about twenty-five minutes, rotating the pan once. Keep an eye on the muffins after about twenty minutes, as every oven bakes differently! Bake until lightly golden.
