Bumbleberry Muffins


After many attempts to get this just right, this is what transpired. I ran a B&B called Bumbleberry Inn and made these muffins every morning to my guests' delight.

12 muffins


  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup whole wheat flour

  • ½ cup rolled oats

  • ½ cup ground flax seeds

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup mixed frozen berries


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin.

  2. Mix milk and lemon juice in a bowl. Let stand until soured, about 5 minutes.

  3. Combine flour, whole wheat flour, oats, flax, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.

  4. Beat soured milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a smaller bowl. Mix into flour mixture until batter is just moistened. Fold in berries. Spoon batter into the prepared pan.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute vinegar for the lemon juice if preferred.

Top each muffin with a berry before baking, if desired.
