Quadruple Berry Muffins

Hey ya'll! A couple of posts ago, I mentioned that I made my favorite muffins and was going to post a tutorial- here it is! Yum!

Here is the recipe that I use- I made a few modifications, specifically softening the butter, a adding an extra splash of vanilla, and, of course, adding four types of berries- cranberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. I've also put letters on each section of a collage photo so I can go into more detail and describe each photo. NOTE: I doubled this recipe!
Here's is what you'll need to double this recipe (makes 24 muffins):
-1 cup of butter, softened
-2 cups of sugar (plus extra to sprinkle for topping)
-4 eggs
-2 teaspoons vanilla (add an extra splash!)
-4 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-4 cups flour
-1 cup milk
-5 cups of berries 

First preheat your oven to 375° and grease two 12-cup muffin pans (I normally just use paper cups). Soften butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. While butter is heating, toss sugar in a large bowl and add the softened butter. Mix it all up!

Once mixed, add the four eggs (A) and mix again (B)!

Add the baking powder (A), vanilla (B), and salt (C) and mix it all up (D)!

This next step is tricky. Add the half of the flour (A) and half of the milk (B), mix it up, then repeat with the other halves and mix again.

After it's mixed (A), add the cranberries (B) and other berries (C). Then mix it all up (D)!

Then place in muffin cups (A), I'd fill them up about halfway and sprinkle a little sugar on each. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden-brown. Enjoy!
