Delicious raspberry nut muffins will brighten any morning! Sprinkle the tops with a little cinnamon sugar just before baking.

I used fresh raspberries in these muffins, but frozen may be used. Toss frozen raspberries in some flour before you fold them into the batter. That helps to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup fresh cleaned raspberries, halved if large
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, 9 ounces
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • cinnamon sugar for sprinkling, optional

How to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Grease and flour a 12-cup muffin pan.
  3. Rinse and drain raspberries. Put them on paper towels to dry a bit.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  5. In another smaller bowl, whisk egg with the milk. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry mixture along with the melted butter. Mix lightly to combine, just until ingredients are moistened. The batter will be somewhat lumpy.
  6. Sprinkle raspberries and pecans or walnuts over the batter and gently fold into the batter. Spoon into the prepared muffin pans.
  7. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over each muffin, if desired.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 21 minutes, or until a cake tester or pick comes out clean when inserted into the center of a muffin.

  • "I will be making this recipe again. Wonderful muffins that are moist and soft on the inside. This recipe is very quick and easy to make. My only complaint is that the cook time might be a little bit too long. My muffins came out dark on the bottom but light in the middle. Otherwise these muffins were perfect!" — Angela
