Berry Buttermilk Muffins

Makes 12 muffins

1/2 cup sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup frozen mixed berries
cinnamon for sprinkling
 sugar for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a muffin tin and sprinkle liberally with cinnamon and sugar.

In a large bowl, sift together 1 3/4 cups flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Grate the butter and add it to the dry ingredients. Mix well with hands.

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and buttermilk. Blend with the dry ingredients until just combined–it will still be lumpy.

In a separate bowl, toss the berries in the remaining 1/4 cup flour then fold into the batter. Fill the muffin cups to the top, and sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar (pour a little water into any empty muffin cups). Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean. Serve warm.
