Raspberry Streusel Muffins

by GettingFreedom on June 28, 2011

A quick fruit muffin is a perfect snack for busy summer months.  Top it with streusel, and you’ve really got my attention!  I came across these muffins while flipping through my Southern Living Cookbook trying to find dinner ideas.  I couldn’t stop thinking about them–and now that I’ve made them and eaten them all, I’m ready to make them again.

Raspberry Streusel Muffins

1 3/4 cup flour; divided

2 tsp baking powder

½ cup sugar

1 egg; lightly beaten

½ cup milk

½ cup butter; melted

1 cup frozen raspberries

Streusel Topping

¼ cup chopped pecans

¼ cup packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp butter; melted

In a large bowl, combine 1½ cups flour, baking powder and sugar.  Make a well in the center.

In a seperate bowl, combine egg, milk, and butter.  Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.  Fold in the raspberries.

Spoon batter into lightly greased muffin pan, filling about 2/3 full.

Combine remaining ¼ cup flour and all of the streusel topping ingredients and sprinkle over the muffins.  Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes.

Yield:: 1 dozen

@Deb Donner, Oh yum, Deb! Maybe I’ll try that instead! We’ve got another tournament tonight, and that would be a perfect snack for the other kids.

We are the muffin family and I’m always looking for a great muffin recipe.
Our son loves raspberries and I have a King Arthur muffin mix calling to be made.
Thanks for the idea!

What do you do with the remaining 1/4 cup of flour? I just put these in the oven but left that flour out.

@Lisa, You combine it with the streusel topping. Not sure why that wasn’t in the post originally. Sorry about that–I’ve updated it.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Thanks! That might be why the brown sugar didn’t stay on the muffin. :)
