I Love David Archuleta

… and so does Ben. Seriously, Ben was practically moved to tears by tonight’s performance.

I’ve been having some computer trouble these past fews days, but I wanted to post my fifth and final muffin finding. I spotted these tri-berry muffins not too long ago on RecipeGirl’s blog. A Barefoot Contessa Recipe, these muffins are moist, sweet, and a yummy yummy treat! I used all frozen berries and they came out beautifully. 

Tri-Berry Muffins
Adapted from The Barefoot Contessa via RecipeGirl
Yield = 12

1½ C. all-purpose flour
1½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¾ C. granulated sugar

¾ C. milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 C. mixed berries, fresh or frozen. A mixture of frozen blueberries and raspberries works well. If using strawberries, fresh is better than frozen. Be sure to dice.

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place liners in muffin tin.

2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sugar together in a large bowl. Stir with a whisk to combine.

3. In another bowl, combine the milk, eggs, butter and vanilla.

4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir until just combined. There might be some lumps but don’t overmix the batter. Fold in the blueberries, raspberries and strawberries.

5. Spoon batter into the muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean and the tops are nicely browned.

    Ali, I think it was the cop-out boxer shorts in the Risky Business remake commercial that did poor Archuleta in. He’s so cute, but I guess Cook had bigger, well… muffins, dancing in his tighties and all. These look terrifc and I’m excited that we’re on the brink of berry season!

    ha! you’re funny. I cannot believe Archuleta lost. I was in total shock. He’s so clearly the better singer … but I guess that’s not all that counts.

    yes, I cannot wait for berry season, too.

    Hi Ali, Glad you tried these and liked them! I’m a David Cook fan myself. I just couldn’t see myself buying albums made by a 17 year old. I think DA will be great in a few years… kinda similar to Michael Buble.

    DAVID ARCHULETA IS ALIVE AND DOING WELL!!! He is releasing his 6th studio album on March 26th 2013. He has done many concert tours here and around the world. I have been to over 20 of his performances and he is amazing live! He starred in a mini series in the Phillipines in Feb. of 2012. Currently he is away on a 2 year mission in Chile and is set to return in March/April 2014. Even though he is gone he has left music for his fans. His voice has only gotten richer and more beautiful as he has aged. He is now 22. Check out many videos of his performances on youtube. BTW these muffins look delicious. I’m definitely Pinning them.

      Holly, I love it. I will definitely have to check up on him. I haven’t listened to anything of his in ages, but I remember loving his voice when he was a contestant.

    These came out great. I added a pinch more cinnamon, but I think next time I’ll double the cinnamon in the recipe just because I love it. I baked them for twenty minutes and due to a dodgy oven did they burn on the outside, but on the inside they tasted great. Soft and moist, the latter due to the berries which made eating them hot pleasant. I used frozen mixed berries, including frozen strawberries, none of which I diced and it still seemed fine. I thoroughly recommend this recipe, especially since I’m a beginner and they turned out well. :)
