Around here one of the surest signs of summer is when one of the kids comes back into the house with a purple face and purple hands! That is when I know the mulberry tree is loaded with ripe fruit and summer has arrived! So here are my Mulberry Recipe Ideas.
I love that my kids will always have the memory of climbing into the mulberry tree and eating their fill of berries in the warm sunshine. I love eating them myself. Usually eating berries from the tree is about all we ever get to do with the berries. There have not been an abundance of berries in year’s past. But for some reason, the mulberry tree this year is loaded with berries. Big beautiful black mulberries! More than we could ever eat! So I tried to figure out what to do with all these berries. First I attempted to make jam. Let’s just say that did not turn out the way I expected. Moving on…everyone I talked to about mulberry recipes suggested that I make muffins. So I dug my favorite muffing recipe out and gave it a shot! Yes! Success!
The muffins were moist and delicious with just the right amount of sweetness. In fact, they were so good I made 3 more batches and will freeze them for an easy breakfast all summer long!
I am sharing my favorite all time muffin recipe. You can make any variety of muffins starting with this basic recipe. For the mulberry recipe I reduced the amount of fruit to 1 cup. Mulberries are bigger than my typical add ins (blueberries or chocolate chips) amd they also have more seeds.
Basic Muffin Recipe:
1 13/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar, depending on how sweet you like your muffins
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mulberries, remove stems, rinse, and sprinkle with a little sugar
1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners
2. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, slat, and nutmeg. In a second bowl whisk together the milk, butter, egg, and vanilla.
3. Add fruit or any other add ins to the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine with as few strokes as possible.
4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each cup to 1/2 to 2/3 full.
5. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 min. Brush with melted butter and serve warm.
Make a mulberry yogurt parfait. Layer vanilla yogurt and mulberries and even granola if you like.
Make mulberry smoothies. Blend up mulberries, strawberries, and bananas with vanilla yogurt to make a quick healthy breakfast. Mulberries are full of antioxidants and vitamins.
