I have had muffins on my mind ever since I shared those jam-filled muffins. I’m about to make a pretty serious declaration:

Muffins are my favorite baked good.

Sure, donuts, cakes, cupcakes, bread – all baked goods, all delicious.

But muffins can be both sweet and savory. Best of both worlds.

You can carry one around with one hand, no mess. You can always stuff one in your purse for a snack (YES, I have done this.)

Oh, muffins. I am tempted to write an “Ode to a Muffin” haiku right now.

I won’t (I’ll leave that to the professionals.) Instead, I am going to share with you a delicious muffin recipe.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins with Lemon Glaze

I like easy recipes and this raspberry lemon muffin recipe is easy-peazy. No stand mixer or hand mixers needed; just grab your favorite whisk, wooden spoon and bowl.

One of the keys to keeping these muffins fluffy is to not over mix the batter. When the dry and wet ingredients are just-combined, stop mixing and grab a spatula to fold the raspberries in.

Raspberries: Fresh or Frozen

You can use either fresh or frozen raspberries in this recipe. Fresh is always my preference but when I’m in a pinch, I will use frozen. No need to defrost them.

If you have raspberry bushes or neighbors with them, make sure to stash away some fresh berries in the freezer so you can make these muffins whenever you have a whim.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.

  3. Add the milk mixture to the the flour mixture and stir until just combined (the batter will be lumpy.) Fold in the raspberries.

I bake with strawberries a lot, and I LOVE lemon, but for some reason I neglect to use raspberries much. Looking at these muffins, though, I"m not sure why. They look amazing!

I host a weekly link party that just went live- I'd love for you to stop by and link up! http://bit.ly/1S8Dsb7
