If not the best,

then close to the best ever red berry muffin.

Couple of years ago I teased about not giving out the recipe for red berry muffins. Changed my mind. 

Of course you can add any berry, or rhubarb or whatever.
1 stick [14 ounces butter]
1 cup sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 cups red berries, or whatever.

Pre heat oven to 400 c.

Line 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners.

In medium bowl beat the sugar and butter with electric mixer until smooth and light in color. Add the egg, mix in the vanilla and mix until well blended, about a minute.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and the salt. Add half the flour to the batter and partially blend. Add half the milk and blend.
Add rest of flour and the milk and mix with hand spatula just until the batter comes together, it will be lumpy. Lumpy is good.

Fold in the berries and evenly distribute.

Fill the muffin cups to just below the top.

Bake the muffins in the center of the oven for 30 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and a tooth picked inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on wire rack. Give them away to all the people you don’t like cause if you start eating them you wont stop.
