Berry filled summer days is perfectly celebrated with richberry's miracle berry and this recipe. Eat this muffins without any guilt.
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups buttermilk
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
zest of 1 lemon
2 large eggs
2 cups assorted berries (I used 1 cup blueberries & 1 cup raspberries)
For the Streusel:
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare two muffin pans by lining with baking cups. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, lemon zest and eggs. Stir the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the berries.
Evenly distribute the batter into your prepared muffin tins (a standard sized ice cream scoop is perfect for this). Prepare the streusel by combining the ingredients in a food processor or with a pastry cutter until it is crumbly in texture. Using your fingers, press the crumbs together to make larger clumps. Sprinkle on top of the muffins. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy immediately.
Consume Miracle Berry:
Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
Note: Sometimes you may need to add at least 5-7% of the total quantity of sugar required, this is due to the chemistry of the food, however, you may skip this as you wish. The goal is to totally reduce sugar and yet experience the same taste.
