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

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
