Raspberry Dream Muffins}Muffin Monday

It’s back!

Thanks to several Facebook requests Muffin Monday is back.  It got lost in all the holiday happenings, baking and cooking but it’s back and it’s back with a good one!

These muffins were so yummy I made them twice last week.

Raspberry Dream Muffins

These muffins were so yummy I spent over $4.00 on a pint of fresh raspberries!  They are so worth it.

Maybe you remember that amazing Eggnog Cranberry White Chocolate Muffin recipe? (Next time you can get your hands on some egg not, you really must make them) I took that recipe and tweeked it a bit – made it a bit more Springy.  Although it’s not Spring here yet we are being optimistic.

I used one of my favorite flavor combination – raspberry and white chocolate.  Pure heaven!

These muffins have a light sprinkling of sugar on the top to give it a little extra sweetness and some crunch.  They are truly amazing warm but are delicious cool too.

They are definitely worth the price and effort of finding some fresh raspberries.

Welcome back Muffin Monday – we’re glad to have you!!

    How much of the pint of raspberries do you use, all of it? This sounds like it is an automatic favorite of mine and I haven’t even tried them yet! Thanks for the share.

  2. Lisle says

    They look wonderful! And thanks so much for the printable link–that’s so much better than having to cut and paste to get it to the right size!

    These look delicious. I like anything with raspberries. So glad Muffin Monday is back, my grandkids in December really liked all of your muffin recipes I made.

    These look amazing!!! I cannot wait to try them! I am excited the muffins are back. I am always looking for new recipes for things I can eat on the go for breakfast.

    Made them…love them and so did my husband and kids. I got 18 muffins out of this recipe. Now I have to try the ones with cranberries too!

    I have the best luck with YOUR recipes. They NEVER fail!

    Do you think that the Seedless Raspberry Jelly could be used? I’m not suppose to have the seeds, that are in these wonderful berries!

    After I made these my 8 year old said, “These muffins should be on the TV show THE BEST THING I EVER ATE!” Can’t wait to make your orange muffin recipe this week.
