Raspberry Muffins

Here’s an easy recipe for Raspberry Muffins using plenty of sweet, fresh raspberries.

RecipeBoy Brooks made this recipe way back in 2012 when he was just 11 years old. You can see a couple of photos from his original post underneath the recipe below. Brooks has always been a raspberry lover. He has shared recipes for raspberry gooey butter cake, raspberry shortbread bars, raspberry popsicles and raspberry buckle.

We loved these raspberry muffins so much that we had to make them again and update the photos. They are sweet and wonderful with loads of fresh raspberries baked into them. I think you’re going to love them!

How to make Raspberry Muffins:

The complete, printable recipe is at the end of this post.

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick spray.
 
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, buttermilk, sour cream and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Gently stir in 1½ cups raspberries. Do this very carefully so the raspberries don’t get crushed. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about ¾ full. Add the remaining ¼ cup halved raspberries to the tops of the batter so it will look pretty on top. Sprinkle sugar on top of each.

These raspberry muffins are some of the best we’ve ever had. The batter is pretty delicious, so don’t sample it too much or you may go overboard before they’re even baked!

This recipe makes 12 muffins. They’re best eaten within a couple of days. If you would like to double the recipe, that’s fine too. Muffins freeze well. Just put them in a large freezer zip baggie. Freeze for up to three months. Take a muffin out to thaw when the mood for a muffin strikes! Enjoy!
