As Requested...Blackberry Muffin Tea

I made Blackberry Cobbler last week and my youngest son said, "Mom, why don't you make Blackberry Muffins?"   So, as requested I tried out a blackberry muffin recipe.  

I love this teacup I found a few weeks ago.

Don't you love this image, on what I would call the back of the cup.  

The muffins were really good.  They disappeared fast. Here is how I made them.  Original recipe link below.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch salt
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/4 cup blackberries

Preheat the oven to 350° F and prepare a muffin tin with paper liners.  Rinse the fresh berries and let them drain in a collander.  
In a large mixing bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt till well mixed.  In a medium bowl beat the egg and mix in the sugar and then the sour cream.  Whisk until completely combined and then whisk in the milk and the butter. 
Scatter the blackberries into the dry mixture and fold in well. The add the wet ingredients, fold in in that until just mixed. Do not overmix.  
Scoop the batter into each muffin tin filling 3/4 of the way full.  
Bake about 20-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted into muffin comes out clean. 
Cool on a wire rack.  
Makes 6-8  muffins. 
Recipe Adapted from: Nook and Pantry

I also found a tea tin.  

Tea and blackberry muffins make a tasty combo.  I am finishing up a few more summer ideas and then I am ready to jump into fall recipes and ideas.  Are you ready for fall ideas yet or are you holding onto summer awhile longer?

The muffins also look good and the tea canister is a nice collector's item.
I'm still hanging on to summer but look forward to autumn as it is my favourite season.

Love the new mug Sherry! I have some blackberries in the freezer from last year. I need to pull them out and use them. This would be perfect! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
