Walnut Raspberry Muffins Recipe

Raspberries are my favorite berry, so this recipe is tops with me. The walnuts give the muffins a nice crunch. You can dress them up by using foil liners instead of paper. —Elisa Lochridge, Beaverton, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min./batch YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg whites, egg, buttermilk and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in raspberries and walnuts.

Editor's Note: If using frozen raspberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
