Muffins are not just for breakfast anymore, people. I know this because I ate the majority of these easy blackberry spice muffins over the course of Easter weekend at all times of the day (and night). The oddest hour was at about 1:00 AM while watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, which is a great show, by the way. Let me know in the comments if you happen to be a fan as well. Back to the muffins, though: they taste and smell heavenly, partially due to the addition of ground clove, which you might know as the signature spice in chai. Be careful when using clove as a little goes a long way. And it’s so delicious. The blackberries are juicy, tart, and provide a beautiful faint purple color to the batter and resulting muffins. I love this because purple foods are usually associated with grape flavor, which makes the flavor even more unexpected when you bite in. Blackberry and clove isn’t a combination that automatically comes to mind and I don’t really recall what inspired this particular recipe but I will say that the result is worth trying. Oh, and these muffins taste great right out the oven (with a little cooling time, of course) but are even more amped up by a simple brown sugar glaze. You can mix it up with just three ingredients while the muffins bake then Voila! Magic. Check out the full recipe below and let me know what you think. As for me, I will most likely be spending the rest of this evening shaking my head over the fact that I ate. them. all and resisting the urge to whip up another batch. I’m thinking of adding nuts this time. You know, for research. 🙂 Maybe even trying blueberries? I’ll report my findings. Pray for me, y’all.
