Blackberry Cobbler Muffins

Breakfast doesn’t get any easier, or more delicious, than these Blackberry Cobbler Muffins. Fresh muffins, filled with ripe blueberries, and topped with a sweet streusel crumble- they taste just like one of your favorite desserts, but this version was made for the AM hours.

Blackberry Cobbler Muffins

Summer has officially arrived at our house. Today marks the first official day of Summer Vacation 2018.

Woot woot!!

I am looking forward to a Summer or relaxing. Relaxing by the pool while the kids splash and play. Relaxing on my back deck with a good book, and a cold beverage, in hand while the kids ride bikes up and down the drive way, play catch, and throw the football.

A Summer where I consciously make an effort to say ‘yes’ more, and (hopefully) ‘no’ a lot less.

Starting to tonight’s trip to the grocery store.

Son # 4 is 8 (almost 9) so he has the unfortunate reality of begin dragged along on all of Mama & Daddy’s tragically boring errands.

Sometimes though, this actually works out to his benefit because he gets to grab a bite with us whenever we get a hankerin’, and I am a lot more liable to buy the cheap trinket or toy his puppy-dog eyes beg for when it’s just him.

As opposed to years ago when it was a lot harder, because I had at least three, if not all four kids wanting toys at the same time.

Son # 2 has finally figured this out. Now when we ask if anyone wants to come with us, he will actually ask where we’re going and carefully evaluate his options. Girlfriend vs. parents buying you food or other various items while out and about.

Son # 3 still hasn’t actually caught on at 16, but being grounded he did choose grocery shopping with me over sitting at home bored out of his mind. Which is precisely how I ended up with several pints of blackberries.

More than I even realized he’d stuck in the cart when I originally said we could/would get some. This son loves almost all fresh fruit, but in season blackberries are one of his all time favorites.

It was an easy ‘yes’ for me. This time at least!

While he’ll end up munching on most of them as a snack, there’s no way he’ll go through all of them before they start sprouting and growing nasty bits.

A couple days in he will get tired and go back to alternating between bananas, apples, and fresh kiwi. So now I’ve got to come up with a way to use some of these berries. In a way that the rest of my crew will enjoy, to be sure they’re eaten and not wasted.

Cue to this recipe for sweet Blackberry Cobbler Muffins.

It is Summer after all, so I’d really love it if my cooking could stay simple and for the most part- my recipes stay easy. The troops are all home now for every meal too.

During the school year, they get the option of where they eat breakfast. Two opted for school, the other prefers to scarf down a cold bowl of cereal on his way out the door, or pop tarts, yogurt, something along those lines.

While weekends are big breakfast and brunch events, I have never been (will never be!) a morning person. A big breakfast on a Monday morning? That ships never sailing, barring the chance that it was some day of importance or special significance for one of the kids or the Hubs.

Before I get to far off topic, the troops gotta eat. Breakfast, whatever form it takes, is essential for my guys. Be they sleepy or hungry, either one is a recipe for disaster in the behavior and/or attitude department.

Luckily, muffins- well these Blackberry Cobbler Muffins in particular- are easy enough to whip up before I go to bed, and have fresh and ready, on hand in the morning when my sleepy heads get up.

    Yummy and easy! However, I would reduce the cooking time to 15 minutes — 20 minutes caused the bottom of the muffins to brown too much.

    These are great! I was out of milk, so substituted reconstituted buttermilk powder, and left off the crumb topping for my wife’s preferences, but everything came out perfect. This is now a go-to when we have blackberries available.

    1. What a great substitution tip to share, Jim. Glad you were able to adapt them for what was available & your preferences!

    These were really good, made as per the recipe, except I did not do the crumb topping. Will definitely make again.
    I had no issues with baking time.
