• 110 grams (1/2 cup) butter
  • 225 grams (1 cup + 2 tablespoons) sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 260 grams (2 cups + 1 tablespoon) flour
  • 10 grams (2 teaspoons) baking powder
  • 120 milliliters (1/2 cup) milk
  • 5 grams (1 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • 150 grams (1 cup) berries


  • Mixing Bowl

    A spacious bowl is essential to ensure all ingredients blend smoothly. Choose one with a non-slip base for added stability.

  • Electric Mixer

    While manual mixing works, an electric mixer saves time and ensures a fluffy batter. A good handheld mixer will do the trick.

  • Muffin Tray

    A non-stick muffin tray is a must-have for perfect muffins. Silicone trays are a great alternative as they make unmolding a breeze.

  • Spatula

    A rubber spatula helps fold the berries into the batter gently, preventing them from squishing.

  • Baking Amples

    Pre-cut baking papers or reusable silicone cups for easy cleanup and consistent muffin shapes.

  • Oven

    An oven with a precise temperature control ensures even baking. Always preheat it to 356°F (180°C) before you start.


Step 1

Step 1: Mix the room temperature butter with sugar until fluffy. Ensure the butter is soft but not melted to achieve a creamy texture.

Step 2

Step 2: Add one egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Crack eggs into a separate bowl first to avoid shell fragments.

Step 3

Step 3: Stir in the vanilla extract.

Step 4

Step 4: Gradually add half the flour and mix until just combined. Avoid overmixing to keep the muffins light and fluffy.

Step 5

Step 5: Slowly introduce the milk while mixing.

Step 6

Step 6: Add the remaining flour and baking powder, mixing until just incorporated.

Step 7

Step 7: Gently fold in the berries with a spatula. Be careful not to crush the berries too much.

Step 8

Step 8: Spread the batter evenly in a muffin tin lined with paper liners or greased with butter.

Step 9

Step 9: Bake the muffins in an oven preheated to 356°F (180°C) for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Oven temperatures can vary, so keep an eye on them from the 25-minute mark.

It's easy to transform these delicious berry muffins into gluten-free or vegan treats without losing flavor or texture. 🌱

For a gluten-free version: Substitute the regular flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Ensure it contains xanthan gum for the best texture. Double-check all other ingredients, like baking powder, to make sure they're certified gluten-free.

For a vegan version: Swap butter with a vegan butter substitute, and use flax eggs instead of regular eggs. Simply mix 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons of water and let it sit for a few minutes to thicken. Use plant-based milk like almond or oat milk.
