raspberry streusel muffins

Summer is a great time for fresh fruit.  So much so that it’s hard to resist buying it all because it looks so pretty.  That happened to me last week with fresh red raspberries.  They looked so plump and juicy that I had to have them even though I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do with them.

So they sat in my fridge for a couple days until I decided to make these delicious raspberry streusel muffins.  These yummy little gems turned out nice and moist with surprise little bits of sweet red raspberries tucked inside.

from Edible Antics

Ingredients:

2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1 stick of butter, melted
4 1/2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 cups fresh red raspberries

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 425°.  Beat the eggs with the buttermilk, add the melted butter, blending well.

2.  Sift flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and allspice together. Add half of the dry ingredients to the buttermilk mixture. Stir to blend, add the remaining dry ingredients, again stirring just to blend.

3.  Gently fold in the raspberries. Spoon into the muffin cups and top with streusel topping (recipe below).

4.  Bake 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned.
