Jumbo Mixed Berry Muffins

I really love all things breakfast and pastry, specifically, but I never really have both the inspiration to bake something for breakfast and the ingredients on hand when I want to use them. However, this particular day, I had some leftover blueberries and raspberries, some time on my hands, and an appetite. So, I decided to make these muffins in my jumbo muffin pan.

These muffins are awesome. I ate two of them right out of the oven so that I could get the butter to melt into them. Then I might have eaten more for lunch and more for dessert. I’m not even sure the six muffins lasted 24 hours…
