From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...The seminal version of this recipe was developed in the Land O' Lakes test kitchen, and if the number of riffs it has generated is any indicator, people liked it - a lot. The source was hard to find because there are so many versions of the recipe floating in cyberspace. That number is easily explained by how simple these delicious muffins are to make. No special equipment is needed to prepare them, so this is a perfect recipe to make in a poorly equipped summer kitchen. It is also one that can be made by young cooks. I must warn you, that while these muffins are too sweet to serve for breakfast, they make an addictive dessert or late afternoon snack. They are moist and sweet and truly great to eat. The batter used to make the muffins is very stiff and guaranteed to mash the berries you try to fold into it. If you think the bleeding color will bother you, use frozen, unthawed berries and you'll be fine. I do hope you'll give these muffins a try. Here is how they are made.
