Raspberry Muffins Recipe

This was originally a blueberry muffin recipe, but since raspberries grow like crazy around here, I tried them instead. They worked great!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • Additional sugar


  • 1. Combine flour and baking powder; set aside. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs; mix well. Combine milk and vanilla; add to creamed mixture alternately with flour mixture. Fold in the raspberries. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until center of muffin springs back when lightly touched. Yield: about 1 dozen.

"Loved this recipe - hubby liked them as they are light consistency. Only used half cup sugar and 2 cups s r flour. This recipe is a keeper to use with other berries, nice with cinnamon sugar on top and dob of sour cream on the side:-)"

"This is not a recipe for muffins, but rather sounds like one for cupcakes. Muffins are quick breads, so they require a lot more flour and baking powder than this recipe suggests, a lot less sugar and a higher temperature. I followed the recipe to the letter and the result was really mediocre: they were flat and too sweet. You need 2 cups of flour, 4 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 cup of sugar. It also needs to cook at 400 for about 12mn, not 375 and 20mn."

"My family loved this. I used 2 cups of red raspberries, and lemon flavoring instead of vanilla. I also sprinkled turbinado sugar (fair trade) on top."

"I used whole wheat flour and decreased the sugar by 1/4 cup (I do this to almost all recipes) and frozen raspberries from my dad's garden and they turned out AMAZING! Even my husband commented on how good they were. I will definately make them again!"
