Blackberry Lime Muffin Recipe

As the weather gets warmer I start craving summer flavors like citrus and berries. These blackberry lime muffins are the perfect on the go muffins. Make them ahead of time to eat on the run or as a great addition to breakfast or brunch. They have a balance of bright fresh limes and sweet and tart blackberries.

Now blackberry lime muffins may seem like a flavor combination out of left field but blackberry margaritas are my favorite. I had both blackberries and limes on hand and wanted to bake something. I decided to test out blackberry lime muffins with my favorite muffin recipe. You guys these are amazing! I already can’t wait to make these again. 

This recipe is my go to base for any muffin recipe. For years it has consistently produced moist yet fluffy muffins. Another version of these muffins are these apple cinnamon muffins or lemon raspberry muffins.

Blackberry Lime Muffin Recipe

TO MAKE Blackberry lime MUFFINS FROM SCRATCH, YOU WILL NEED:

  • Muffin pan
  • Cupcake liners
  • 2 Cups of Flour
  • 1 1/4 Cup of Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 Cup of Milk- I use whole milk when baking
  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • Zest of 1 Lime
  • Juice of 2 Limes
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Blackberries

HOW TO MAKE Blackberry lime MUFFINS

To make these muffins, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with cup cake liners.

In a medium sized bowl mix together your dry ingredients of flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. One at a time add eggs and milk. Add melted butter, lime zest, juice and stir.

Using a silicone spatula fold in blackberries.  Pour batter into muffin tins. I prefer muffin tins that bake 12 muffins at a time like this one. Tip: I like to use an ice cream scoop to add batter to the muffin liners. This will ensure even and uniform muffins.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Let cool for a bit and enjoy!

Yield: 12 muffins

CAN YOU USE FROZEN Blackberries?

While I love to bake with fresh ingredients butI find with muffins you can use frozen blackberries if they aren’t in season. You can also do this when baking blueberry muffins.
