Red, White & Blueberry

Happy Friday Ya'll! Since The Five on Friday is taking a Summer break I'm linking up with Hello! Happiness for her Fourth of July Recipe Link Up! 

I love to bake and I especially love to bake adorable holiday themed goodies. I plan to make lots of Fourth of July treats this week but first are Red, White and Blueberry muffins. Again, I know more raspberries but I couldn't help myself, these are tasty!

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups  buttermilk
1 cup  fresh raspberries
1 cup  fresh blueberries
3 tablespoons sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375.  Line 18 regular muffin tins with paper liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer use the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar and beat on medium high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Lower the speed to medium low and add eggs, one at a time, incorporating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.

3. With the mixer on the lowest setting, alternate mixing in the flour mixture and the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour.

4. Gently fold in the blueberries and raspberries.

5. Divide the batter up by scooping it evenly into the muffin tins, sprinkle with sugar.

6.Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and the center muffins bounce back up when touched.

They are so yummy warm out of the oven or cooled off, just as great either way! The original recipe called for vanilla sugar on the top and I just used plain granulated sugar and I had no complaints.
Original recipe from Sophistimom.

If you decide to bake these, enjoy! Red, White & Blueberry Recipe
