Raspberry Lemon Streusel Muffins
Yields 9
I love me some raspberries!
  2. 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
  3. 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  4. 2 tablespoons sugar
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  7. 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  8. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  9. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  10. 1 1/3 cups sugar
  11. 1 tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel
  12. 1 egg
  13. 1 cup buttermilk
  14. 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
  15. 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  16. 1 1/2 cups whole frozen raspberries (about 6 oz), do not thaw
  17. 1 tablespoon flour
  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 400º. Stir all streusel ingredients together to form soft, crumbly dough. Set aside.
  2. Whisk dry muffin ingredients and lemon peel together. In a separate bowl, combine all liquid ingredients. Add in dry ingredients and stir until almost fully incorporated. Toss frozen raspberries with flour to coat, then gently fold into dough, handling only enough to incorporate berries. Using paper muffin cup liners, fill each cup until 1/4" from top. Crumble streusel topping over each.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350º and bake for another 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and muffin springs back when pressed lightly with fingertip.
