  • 2 cups unbleached or all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries, approximately 6 ounces

For the tops:

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with papers and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

  • In a medium bowl, place the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy, approximately 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla extract and beat until blended again.
  • With a spoon, stir in half of the flour, then half of the milk. Repeat, stirring with each addition just until blended.
  • Gently fold in the raspberries, being careful not to over mix and mash the berries too much.
  • Using a large (3 ounce) cookie scooper place the batter into the prepared muffin tin and cupcake liners. Then generously sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops are light golden brown and a little firm to the touch.
  • Let the muffins cool in the tin a few minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.


  • Level the scooper for this recipe to ensure you get 12 muffins out of the batter.
  • Check the muffins after baking for 25 minutes because oven temperatures may vary and you don't want to over bake them.
  • If the muffins stick to the tin, run a knife under the tops and gently remove.
