    These muffins are delicious! Very simple & quick to make. I've made them about 4 times and each time (following the recipe exactly) they've turned out perfect. The muffins are sweet without being overbearing; the topping adds texture. I've used pecans, walnuts, and almonds in the topping and they each tasted good. The muffins are very moist and I love reheating them by lightly toasting. They never get dry and taste like they were freshly baked. Dare I say this is my favourite muffin recipe ever? Yes. Yes, indeed.

    I love this recipe and use it with fresh raspberries. Today I tried it with fresh blueberries and I'm sure it will be just as good. I make just as the recipe states.

    Love this! My mom used to make these and she wrote down the recipe for me. A while back, I typed the recipe onto a card that was uniform with the rest of my recipe cards...but I accidentally forgot to copy the streusel recipe! So I called my mom to ask her for the recipe and she could not find it anywhere. I went online to search for Raspberry Streusel Muffins, clicked on Taste of Home's version, figuring there's a good chance my mom got it from the magazine, and started laughing when I saw it was originally published in Country woman--I remember her reading that magazine! Anyway, I love these so much! If you use frozen berries, you can just fold it into the batter to save a step :)

    Easy to make. I might drizzle some frosting on top after the muffins are cooled but I obvioulsy don't need the extra calories.

    Delicious!!! I really love how the tartness of the raspberries contrast with the sweetness of the "muffin". I followed everything exactly as the recipe called, except I did add about 1/4 cup more flour to the "topping" portion to get more of a crumb.

    I can hardly wait for raspberry season to begin each year so I can make these muffins. Becuase you have to put a second layer of batter on each muffin, they're not as quick as say, blueberry, but they're sure worth the extra few minutes. Don't try to stir the raspberries into the batter, they're too fragile.
