Muffins are super easy and super fast. No need for beaters or electric mixers. All you need is a bowl and spoon.
Mulberries are not easily found on supermarket shelves. They look similar to a blackberry, but longer in length. Once they have ripened to a dark black berry and have been picked, they don’t keep for too long. It’s best to use them up straight away – that’s if you haven’t eaten them all whilst picking them and have a dark stain on your mouth and fingers! Mulberry leaves are also the favoured food of silkworms. So if your kids bring silkworms home from school, you had better find a mulberry tree to supply you with the leaves!
Muffins don’t usually have icing on them. I’ve broken from tradition and included a cream cheese frosting (which does use a mixer) on these muffins, so I guess they’re a cross between cupcakes and muffins. If you don’t want to include the frosting, they are just as yummy without.
