Raspberry Muffins

Two days, two batches. That’s how much my husband liked these muffins.

No, we didn’t eat 6 muffins each for breakfast. There were muffins for breakfast for us and our house guest friends, and perhaps I snagged one for a mid-morning snack. Then there was an after work snack or two and most definitely a midnight snack. And just like that, my husband was out of his new favorite muffins.

Raspberry Muffins

Since a muffin-stuffed man is a happy man, I baked another batch. These muffins are super tender and moist. If you’re like me and you’re not a big fan of sweets for breakfast, be sure to have a big glass of cold milk within arms reach.

Brown Sugar-Raspberry Muffins

Moist all brown sugar muffins studded with fresh raspberries.


  • 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 rounded cups raspberries
  • Course sugar for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 400F. Put liners in muffin cups or lightly spray with non-stick baking spray.
  2. On medium-low, mix together butter, brown sugar, milk, and egg in a bowl until combined well. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add to milk mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in raspberries.
  3. Divide batter among muffin cups - it's two scoops of a #20 scoop per muffin cup, if you're a scooper like me. Sprinkle tops with course sugar (if using) and bake until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Those muffins look great! No wonder you had to make another batch!

  • I beleive you when you say they vanished very quickly . these look so good and yummy. I love to bake muffins especially with cinnamon ones they make the house smell so good especially in the morning 🙂 Nice recipe

  • These look fantastic! I love berries, especially raspberries.

  • Oooh those look great. I have a bag of frozen raspberries in the fridge—maybe I’ll make these (once we finish the banana-bourbon ones I made over the weekend.)

    You know, our local coffee shop had a new muffin last week when I stopped in: raspberry mocha. You should try adding mini chocolate chips to this recipe!

    Hopefully the fall raspberries will be out soon and I can make these. 🙂

  • They do look super tasty. I love anything berries.
