How To Make Homemade Raspberry Muffins
This past July we were pleasantly surprised to see our raspberry
bushes yielding a marvelous crop of fresh berries for us. We spent an entire week picking the berries and
utilizing them in various recipes. We made muffins, pancakes, freezer jam, pies and
even a cake.
If you want to freeze your berries for late use, wash and remove the stems and let them air dry. I placed them on a
cookie sheet in my freezer until they were frozen (took about 2 hours) and then packed
them into freezer containers.
The following recipe is a very moist recipe, so don't over mix it as that will cause them to get tough.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup fresh raspberries
Note: Thawed and drained raspberries will work too
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line your muffin pan with 12 liners or lightly grease the cups with some shortening or
nonstick baking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and granulated sugar until they
are well combined. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the beaten egg, buttermilk and raspberries until well mixed,
being careful to not crush the berries. Stir the berry mixture into the flour mixture by hand until all ingredients
are well combined.
Spoon batter into your prepared muffin cups, filling them 2/3 of the way full. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18
minutes or until they are done. (the tops should be lightly browned.)
Serving Suggestions: We like to serve our muffins with honey, honey or apple butter or just plain butter.
Note: I have also used this recipe with blueberries, black raspberries and mulberries and it works just as
