I love pumpkin, I love berries and who doesn’t love muffins?? And, oh boy let me tell you, these babies are resilient! I got caught up writing an article and didn’t hear the oven beep. These little berry muffins stayed in the oven probably an extra 15 minutes and were still moist and delicious. In spite of a bit of a hard shell! Next time they’ll be prettier I’m sure, but they were incredibly delicious!
