Sometimes, even a salty gal like myself enjoys a breakfast with a touch of sweetness. I will never be into the morning frosting and caramel drizzle but natural sweetness does get me from time to time. A banana nut or a blueberry muffin will sometimes sneak into the mix.

I have been experiencing said craving recently and in order to satisfy that, I got a bit crafty in the kitchen this morning. I am quite proud of this Berry Muffin Bake! It made such a perfect breakfast and would also make an amazing dessert with a little bit of vanilla ice cream. As an added bonus, this dish is quite patriotic and festive, so ten points for timing!

Ingredients (makes 1)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of kosher salt
1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter
4 tablespoons low-fat milk

1/2 cup mixed berries (I used blueberries and raspberries–you can really add whichever berry and as many or as little as you’d like!)

1. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees
2. Mix all dry ingredients together in an oven-safe ramekin or dish

3. Using your hands, work butter into dry ingredients by pressing the dry mixture and butter together between your fingertips until the butter is in little pieces throughout dry mixture.
4. Mix in milk gradually and use a fork to continue to evenly incorporate all the ingredients.

5. After the berries are rinsed off, start to blend them into the batter. I like to partially mash up the raspberries and get some swirls going and then leave the blueberries whole–totally up to you!

6. Using the end of your fork, tuck the berries under the batter a bit, you don’t want all of them exposed through the top. If they are, they will cook down too much and not quite be a filling.
7. Bake for 25 minutes. Check for the doneness by inserting a fork. If the fork doesn’t come out clean, let it bake for another 5 minutes.

I hope everyone has an amazing long weekend!
