Easy Muffins with Frozen Berries

– 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1 cup granulated sugar (may add up to 1/2 cup more if you prefer muffins to be sweeter) – 1/4 cup melted butter, cooled down a bit – 1/4 cup vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon lemon juice – 1 1/4 cup milk – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 large eggs, room temperature – 2 cups frozen mixed berries, cut up into smaller pieces, measure after cutting the berries (berries do not need to be thawed.)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Add cupcake liners to a 12-count muffin or cupcake pan plus 3-4 more of another cupcake pan.

In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk well and set aside.

In another bowl, add the sugar, butter, oil, lemon juice, milk, extract and eggs. Whisk well then pour into the center of the dry mixture.

Mix with a spoon or a whisk until there are no large flour lumps. Try not to overmix. There may still be some smaller lumps, which is fine. Just make sure all the large lumps are gone.

Gently mix in the frozen mixed berries. Make sure they've been cut into smaller pieces.

Add the batter to the muffin cups. Fill them almost to the top. Bake on the middle rack at 375 degrees F for 16-20 minutes.

Remove the muffin pans from the oven and set on a cooling rack. Let the muffins cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then remove from the pans and let cool completely on a cooling rack.
