Mixed Berry Muffin Recipe

If you’re tired of your regular grab n go muffin for breakfast, then you have to try our new mixed berry muffin recipe. For busy mornings, these delicious triple berry muffins are breakfast treats the whole family will enjoy.

The muffin tops rise beautifully, and have a slight crunch. The texture of the muffin is perfect too.

I think any time of year is great for a freshly baked batch of muffins and this easy recipe for berry muffins will remind you of the goodness of a mixed berry smoothie!

Now I love baking with frozen fruit, and usually have a bag of triple berry mix or mixed berries on hand. Our recipe for Mixed Berry Pie is just so good and so easy to make too!

But today we’re going to bake some delicious muffins – that you can enjoy with coffee, share with friends, and are great for an after school snack. Muffins freeze really well when sealed in an airtight container.

So the next time you’re looking at bakery style muffins in the grocery stores, leave them there.

You can enjoy mixed berry muffins in about 25 minutes. And the cozy feeling you’ll get the first time you bite into your very own freshly baked muffin? We think that’s very hygge indeed.

So let’s get baking!

Important Tip for making these amazing mixed berry muffins

The most important thing is to gently mix the wet and dry ingredients, being careful not to overstir. The batter shouldn’t be smooth like cake batter. Over-stirring makes for some very tough muffins.

How to make the best bakery style muffins with cake mix

In a large bowl mix the eggs (room temperature) milk, greek yoghurt, melted butter, vanilla extract. Add the mixed berries. You can use either fresh berries, or the frozen berries. I’ve set out the quantities in the recipe card below. These are your wet ingredients.

In a medium bowl sift the boxed cake mix. This is your dry ingredients.

Carefully stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, just enough to blend.

Using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, drop the muffin batter into the muffin cups.

Place the muffin pan in the centre of a preheated oven and bake for the specified time.

Place on a wire rack to cool, and store in an airtight container.

These muffins freeze really well, I usually pop a half dozen into a zip lock bag.
