Raspberry muffins with brown sugar topping

February 13, 2015

Sweet Crispness

Raspberry muffins with a brown sugar topping is the best idea since the last best muffin idea.  I love it.  The natural sweetness from the crisp sugar topping and the hot raspberry burst is wonderful.  It is a good thing I made many because these ran out fast.  Pay up to £4 at Starbucks for one muffin or spend £4 making 12?  It’s a no brainer, not to mention your kitchen will smell so inviting.

This recipe was adapted from Lorraine Pascale’s Home Cooking Made Easy (Harper Collins Publishers, 2011).
