Blackberries are good food for Imbolc, which is also called Brighid’s Day. Brighid (also known as Bride, Bridgit, Bridget, Brig, Brigentis, Brigidu, Brid, Briginda, or Brigit) is the Celtic goddesswho is Guardian of All Knowledge and Keeper of all Memory. Milk and blackberries are her sacred foods, hence we tend to eat Blackberries on Imbolc.


  • 1/2 cup Butter (1 stick)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/8 cup Sugar
  • 3 cups Flour, divided
  • 3 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Pinch baking soda
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 cups Blackberries

Preheat oven to 400 ° s. Grease 2 12 cup muffin pans, or use liners. In a large bowl cream butter with sugar and add eggs. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the flour and combine the remaining flour with baking powder, salt and baking soda. Combine milk and vanilla. Alternately add the milk and flour mixture to the creamed butter and egg mixture. Sprinkle reserved flour over berries and gently fold berries into the mixture. Fill each muffing cup 3/4 full and sprinkle tops with sugar if desired. Bake 15-20 minutes, until done.
