This post first appeared June 18, 2013 and was shared on I hope you enjoy this favorite from my kitchen!

I’m a creature of habit, some of the time. Which is puzzling, because there is a side of me that loves spontaneity and adventure. If it means following a whim and taking off for a trip without too much notice, I am all for it.

If it means riding a donkey on a steep and rocky hillside, count me in. Parasailing? Awesome. But rearrange the furniture? I cringe inside.

We are just a few days into the children’s summer vacation, and today was the first Monday they had off. My usual routine of waking to beat my 6 am alarm, to review emails and messages in the quiet of the morning, and the mad rush to coax everyone to dress and eat breakfast before school were shelved.

It felt strange, not having my usual drill. I felt guilty allowing myself a more leisurely pace. I told myself going in that I would savor their time off, give myself an excuse to perhaps slow down, too. I feel a little crazy for missing a more chaotic routine.

A small colander filled with blueberries.

We did rise early over the weekend, though, to head over the bridge to our favorite farmer’s market at the Ferry Building. The promise of stone fruit and figs and sweet berries lured us out of bed.

Well, at least, it coaxed my husband and I to rise early. The children needed a little more convincing. But once we were at the market, the whining ceased. The bounty of summer cheered them up as they sampled and selected the best pluots, the fuzziest peaches, and the plumpest blueberries.

It’s easy to go a little crazy at the markets when the fruit is this good. If you’re like me and have a little more berries than you can handle, these Mixed Berry Streusel Muffins are a delicious way to enjoy your market haul. If every weekend were full of these sweet gems, this is a morning routine I can definitely get used to.

For the Muffins:

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted (8 tablespoons)
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups assorted berries I used 1 cup blueberries & 1 cup raspberries

For the Streusel:

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into small cubes


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare two muffin pans by lining with baking cups.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, lemon zest and eggs. Stir the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the berries.
  • Evenly distribute the batter into your prepared muffin tins (a standard sized ice cream scoop is perfect for this). Prepare the streusel by combining the ingredients in a food processor or with a pastry cutter until it is crumbly in texture. Using your fingers, press the crumbs together to make larger clumps. Sprinkle on top of the muffins.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy immediately.

    Great that your family was being cooperative with the whole thing. My two daughters would’ve had their tantrums when forced to come. Anyway, there is one thing that those two can easily be okay with and that is the smell of muffins early in the morning. This will be perfect.

    Boy, me too – I wish I could flop out of bed and roll to the Ferry Building! And these are my favorite kind of muffins and look perfect. You reminded that it has been way too long since I made muffins – and lemon bundt cakes :-)

  7. Liz

    Such terrific muffins! I actually prefer a mix of berries to using just one…adds so much to the flavor. And I’m always game for any baked good with a streusel topping…YUM!

  8. Kankana

    I like a busy life. It’s good. But then it’s also good to slow down, helps one to think better and enjoy the days passing by. Happy Summer Liren and those streusel muffins looks delish!

    These muffins look delicious. The farmer’s market at the ferry building is enough to get me out of bed early. It’s such a wonderful place to stroll and pick up some of the best produce ever.

    • Liren

      Probably the best Saturday alarm clock, right? But so easy to go a little crazy – there are always so many things I want to buy :)

  11. Patty

    Beautiful berry muffins Liren, enjoy your relaxed Summer time with your kids…it goes by so fast ;-)
