Lemon-Blackberry Glazed Muffins

While in the mood for something sweet but not wanting the usual cookie or slice of cake, I found a bag full of blackberries in the freezer. What to do, what to do I thought, then it hit me...make muffins. So incorporating a basic muffin recipe I came up with the following sweet treat.

Lemon-Blackberry Glazed Muffins
Muffin:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup frozen blackberries
1/2 Tblsp. lemon extract

Topping:
1 cup powdered sugar
3 Tblsp. milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 400*

In a medium size mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

In a small bowl, beat egg.

Add milk & oil. Stir well to blend.

Pour egg mixture into flour. Stir just until flour is completely moistened.

Lightly incorporate blackberries & lemon extract. Stir just until blended.

Ladle muffin batter into greased or paper lined baking tins; filling only 2/3rds full (filling higher will result in the muffins baking over the cups.)

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before glazing.

For glaze:

Mix together milk, powdered sugar and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth.

Glaze each muffin and enjoy!
