Blackberry Muffins with Streusel Topping

Can someone please explain to me why I don’t make muffins very often?

What is my problem? They’re like cake. For breakfast. What’s not to love?

Maybe it’s the lack of frosting? Good thing I topped these with some streusel.

Please forgive the weird photos. I’m playing around with studio lighting and I haven’t quite figured it out yet. Cross your fingers that I figure it out before I get frustrated and throw the softboxes across the room, yeah?

    So delicious looking. I haven’t had blackberries in the longest time, but am totally craving them now. Especially in muffin form :)

    I think the photos are perfect! And when you put it that way…I need to make muffins more often too. :)

    Anytime my lighting moves even a centimeter, I feel like I need to readjust every aspect of my photo-taking. SO frustrating. I’m sure you’ll figure this out soon though! And if you don’t…just stress-eat a few muffins. That’s what they’re there for.

    I am down with cake for breakfast:-) My daughter requests muffins all the time, so this will be a fun one to change up the ones I usually do!! Your lighting looks great. What kind of softboxes do you have?

    I have the same problem. I love muffins, but for some reason I usually just make normal sized cake. These muffins are fantastic. And yes, pictures look great, there’s nothing wrong with them. 😉
