Martha Stewart's Muffins

2 sticks butter - room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 cups sifted flour
4-5 cups fresh fruit or berries
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp. nutmeg or cinnamon
extra white sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In Kitchen Aid, use flat beater to cream butter and sugar, or cream butter with a hand mixer. After butter is creamed, add eggs and vanilla. Don't over beat.

Mix baking powder, salt and flour together. Alternate adding flour mixture and milk to the previous mixture. End with milk. Add your berries and fruit at the very end. (you can use all of one fruit or have a mixture of two or three kinds.) Pour batter into paper cups in muffin tins.

Make a mixture of white sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Sprinkle the sugar mixture on top of each muffin before baking. Bake for 25 minutes.
