Raspberry Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping


Last weekend when we were supposed to go camping, I was tasked with the job of bringing breakfast items for our weekend away. 

I whipped up a quick loaf of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread, and I also tried out a new recipe for Raspberry Muffins. I figured between these two treats, granola bars and fruit we could all find something we liked that was healthy and delicious for breakfast!

Since we didn't go camping, I had these dozen muffins sitting in my kitchen (how. tragic.). I can most certainly assure you that they were good. I only ate five one. ;)

Raspberry Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping
slightly altered from Better Homes & Garden Pink Edition Cookbook

Servings: 1 dozen

For the muffins:
  • 1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. cooking oil
  • 3/4 c. fresh raspberries
  • 1 recipe Streusel Topping (see below)
  1. Line a muffin pan with paper bake cups; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients. Make a well in the center; set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine your wet ingredients. Add this all at once to your flour mixture. Stir until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Carefully fold in your fresh raspberries. 
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.
  5. Sprinkle streusel topping over muffin batter.
  6. Baking in a 400-degree oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean.
For the streusel topping:
  • 3 TBSP all purpose flour
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  1. Combine all 3 ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Cut in two TBSP butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  2. Two delicious recipes in one day! Do you think taking out the cinnamon in the struesel topping will mess up the recipe? I'm a huge raspberry fan, but cinnamon, not so much. Ham on the grill - I can't believe I never thought of it! YUM!

    1. Chelsea - you can certainly remove the cinnamon...I would just do away with the entire streusel topping if that were the case. They'd be just as good without it!
