  • ยผย all-purpose flourย (30g)
  • ยผย cupย granulated sugarย (50g)
  • pinchย of salt
  • 2ย Tbspย cold butterย diced

Muffins:

  • 2ย cupsย all-purpose flourย (240g)
  • 1ย cupย granulated sugarย (200g)
  • 2ย tspย baking powder
  • ยฝย tspย kosher salt
  • ยพย cupย milkย (180mL)
  • 2ย largeย eggs
  • 5ย Tbspย vegetable oilย (75mL)
  • 3ย Tbspย melted butterย (45mL)
  • 2ย tspย vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1ยฝย cupsย fresh raspberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Butter or spray a 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper liners.

For the streusel:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter and cut it in with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture is very crumbly.

For the muffins:

  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, oil, melted butter, vanilla, and lemon zest. Fold the egg mixture into the flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Fold in the raspberries.

  • Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Sprinkle the streusel over the muffins.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan before removing.

Notes

  • To check if the muffins are ready, insert a toothpick into the center of one muffin, and if it comes out clean with no wet batter, they have finished baking.
  • I recommend using real vanilla extract over artificial vanilla extract.
  • If you are using frozen raspberries in place of fresh, there is no need to thaw them.

 

  • These muffins are right on the cusp of cupcakes. Theyโ€™re super tender and cake-like. If you want to make them into cupcakes, skip the streusel and try crowning them with some of myย Italian Buttercreamย and flavor it with some strained raspberry reduction for a fantastic treat!
  • I modified myย Lemonย Blueberryย  Cakeย to make this muffin recipe, definitely check it out if youโ€™re a cake lover!

  • Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common reason your muffins end up dense. The best and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you donโ€™t have one, then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.
  • If youโ€™re not using paper liners, make sure to butter and flour the wells of your muffin tin thoroughly.ย  Let your raspberry muffins cool for at least 10 minutes before removing them from the tin.
  • Store in an airtight container after cooling for up to 3 days.

 

Recipe FAQ

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO โ€œCUTโ€ IN THE BUTTER?

Cutting in butter means incorporating cold butter into the dry ingredients. This way, the butter is coated with flour while staying in small pieces throughout the mixture. You can use a pastry blender, forks, or your fingers to break up the butter. Aim for a crumbly mixture as the butter shouldnโ€™t blend into the flour. If the butter isnโ€™t cold and is fully incorporated, the streusel will spread out and flatten when baked.

CAN I CHANGE THE BERRY?

Feel free to change things up by swapping in blueberries, blackberries, or diced strawberries. Alternatively, you can split the batter and add raspberries to one half of the batter and a different berry to the other.ย 

HOW DO I FREEZE THESE?

Freeze them on a tray until fully frozen, then transfer to a freezer bag, press the air out, and store for up to two months. When youโ€™re ready to enjoy them, you can thaw overnight in the fridge and warm up in the microwave or defrost in the microwave.
