We have been living in our house for about 5 years. Just this summer, we (by this, I mean my husband) discovered 2 mulberry trees and about 5 raspberry bushes on our property..pretty nice, right? The raspberry bushes are sorta buried in a mass of other bushes in a wooden area and don't get alot of sun, so, they aren't getting very big. But, the mulberry trees are doing pretty well. Enter some muffins.
I admit, at first, picking random fruit from my yard and baking with it was a concern. However, after doing some research (OK.. I googled them) and talking with a local merchant at our farmers market, I figured..what the heck?
These muffins are really tasty. It's a pretty basic recipe..a little work could be used to snazz them up a bit. The berries though? Delicious. A little tart and not as sweet as other berries. A small sprinkle of sugar gives them a tiny boost. You do have to be a bit careful, as, they will stain your hands when you handle them!
A nice little breakfast or snack.
