Red, White and Blue Muffins

Red, White and Blue Muffins

3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour (or whole-wheat flour)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons salt
1 cup fresh blueberries or 3/4 cup frozen blueberries, thawed and well drained
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease bottoms only of 12 medium muffin cups, or
line with paper baking cups.

In bowl, beat milk, oil and egg. Stir in flour,
sugar, baking powder and salt, all at once,
just until flour is moistened (batter will be
lumpy). Gently fold in blueberries and
raspberries. Divide batter among muffin cups.
Sprinkle with sugar if desired. Bake in
preheated oven until golden brown,
18 to 20 minutes. Immediately remove from pan.
Makes 1 dozen.
