TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in raspberries and lemon peel.
  • 2. Fill paper-lined jumbo muffin cups half full. Bake at 350° for 23-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm muffins. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen raspberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
