You all know by now that I’m obsessed with muffins, so I was super excited to make these Blackberry Thyme Muffins. They are from one of the best bakeries I’ve mail ordered food from: Cake Monkey Bakery in Los Angeles. I have to order from them again soon to share some pics of their goodies with you; they were all absolutely spectacular. They have individual layer cakes. That’s right complete layer cakes made just for one person. They’re so awesome, especially for someone like me who has never quite fallen for cupcakes. And they have tons of chocolate free options for me with my crazy allergy.
These muffins are equally awesome. They are super moist with a cakey texture. I love the fresh blackberries throughout, along with the crumb topping, with a hint of thyme, which is not at all overpowering. I liked them better a day or two later when they were even moister.
The best part is that this is my first guest post. My friend over at Mess Makes Food needed some guest bloggers, so I’m thrilled to help her out and excited she’s having me. Please go read my post on Mess Makes Food! I think you’ll love these muffins as well as Miss Messy’s blog!

Oh, I love blackberries….sounds wonderful!
Thanks, Debbie! The blackberries are really prominent in the muffins and the thyme gives them a little something extra.
I didn’t think I would like these but they are really good with a hint of thyme and so many blackberries. The topping is fabulous.
Sometimes flavors are surprisingly good; this is one of those times. And anything with topping is great, right?

Blackberry and thyme seems like a lovely combo!
They really do play well off of each other. It was fun to try something different, and I definitely think the thyme added great flavor. I’ll probably be baking with herbs more in the future.
Saw this recipe on Mess Makes Food, and had to come over and see all your goodies! And now all I want to do is make ALL of your sweets!!
I’m so glad you saw this and came to visit, Leah 🙂 Thank you! I hope you’ll visit again, and I definitely hope you’ll try some of my recipes!

I told the cupcake shop owner about your blog and these muffins!
Oh yay! Thanks, Debbie 🙂 I always appreciate when you tell people about my blog! I hope more people start visiting it.

I love baking with fresh berries! These muffins sound great! 🙂
I love baking with all fruit, Christina, but recipes using blackberries are really hard to find and they’re one of my favorite fruits. I’m always looking for the next great blackberry recipe, and these definitely fit the bill.
