Strawberries, Raspberries and Blueberries take center stage in these homemade muffins.
I couldn’t resist these fresh berries at the store. They looked so amazing and since I am craving all things associated with warmer weather, I bought one of each. Then I made these triple berry muffins!
I am so happy that spring is finally here! At least it was all week. And then the weekend came… temps are back into the 40s and rain! Ugh! But at least the grass is turning green, the crocuses are blooming and the birds are chirping and there’s no snow! I really love spring but I also love summer. Summer is when we have an abundance of fresh fruit and produce. Right now I need to rely on our store to provide those for me. I stocked up on my latest trip to the grocery store!
I’ve made blueberry muffins and raspberry muffins, but never have I used blueberries and raspberries together in a muffin. To make it even better, I’ve added strawberries. You might call this the trifecta of muffins!
I added orange zest and a bit of fresh squeezed orange juice to enhance the berries. You could also use a lemon instead of an orange.
