One of our challenges this week was to make either bread or muffins from the Whole Wheat Mixed Berry Bread recipe in HB in Five.
Even though we are knee deep in blackberries, I wanted to follow the directions and use frozen berries. I used some of our blackberries from last year’s crop.
Some might object to the color, but I think it’s real pretty. The only problem I found with this recipe is that it wasn’t sweet enough. We did try honey butter on it, but then I couldn’t taste anything but the butter!
The crumb looked great. Here is a up close and personal shot.
I will admit they are good BUT they don’t really taste like blackberries. They taste like a nice bread muffin. If I make them again I’d jazz them up with more blackberries, more sugar or honey and maybe even add some dry fruit. We will eat them for sure, but I’d like a little more flavor next time.
