Blackberry Cake Mix Muffins

I love berries. I love them all: blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. They recently had blackberries on sale at my local store and I had to buy some. Then I remembered I had a recipe for cake mix muffins I had been holding on to for a while to try. It came from a fellow member of pinching your pennies, Deweyville. There are many variations to the recipe so I included them all. Just made sure if you make the blackberry/raspberry version or the chocolate version to keep a spoonful of cake mix out to toss the berries or chocolate chips in. If you do this before you add them to the batter, it will prevent them from sinking in the muffin.

  • I was really stressed the other day, Grandchildren wanted muffins I didn’t have 1/3 of what I needed to make them from scratch, car was in the shop!! So I got creative; Using Lemon cake mix ” your basic recipe” I added 1 1/2 – 2 cups of fresh Blueberries….definitely gonna do it again! Moist delicious, and Blueberry’s & Lemon are really good together! Thank You so very much 🙂

  • What size cakemix, please? I’m assuming the 18.5 ounce but I’m wanting to use the box of Jiffy I have on hand, which is 9 oz. Guess I’ll just use 2 eggs and try to cut the rest of the ingredients in sorta half.

  • Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe as well as the tip to coat the extra’s with some cake mix. Can’t wait to try these.

  • These look great. I always have cake mixes on hand. I always forget to toss the berries with some of the dry ingredients – thanks for the reminder!

  • Those look so light and delicious! I love blackberries and the other combos also sound good. What a great easy recipe!

  • Oh I love the things we tell ourselves…that these are “muffins” and somehow not “cupcakes”, because muffins are healthier!

    They look and sound great and I readily admit I love things that start with a cake mix (which is just flour, baking stuff and sugar, right, so that’s allowed!)

  • These sound so good! I love berries too, so I’ll have to give these a try. Thanks for sharing the recipe. 🙂

  • Yummy~~
