Elderberry Muffins

Another thing I am going to miss when my house sells is the elderberry bushes. There was a great crop this year. Here they are, just beginning to ripen.


Even though they were turning ripe right around the time that I was busy moving to my new house, I managed to pick and freeze a few pints. So far, I’ve been enjoying them in muffins. If you want to try this delicious treat, you can use your favorite muffin recipe and just add 1 cup of elderberries at the end. Or, you can try the recipe I use.

Mix together:

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

In a separate bowl combine:

1 beaten egg

1 cup milk

1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 cup maple syrup

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, then stir in 1 cup elderberries, frozen or fresh.


Bake at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Best eaten fresh out of the oven with butter and/or jam.
