We go crazy around here for fresh muffins. And raspberries? We’ve had bushes in the backyard since the kids were young. So put it all together for this fresh raspberry muffins recipe and I get some VERY excited kids!
Honestly, it always feels like such a treat to go out and pick a handful of raspberries, or even a bowlful, especially when I think about how expensive fresh ones are in the grocery store.
This raspberry muffins recipe is chock full of fresh fruit, settled into a tender, sweet cake.
The extra baking powder helps them blossom in the muffin tin, especially since fresh fruit can weigh down a muffin and make it more dense than fluffy. So, as a result, these look like muffins, and not like hockey pucks!
