Lemon Raspberry Muffins

I started posting muffin recipes on a few weeks back on Saturdays, because I wanted to give people an easy & fast meal for Sunday breakfast/brunch.  Family meals are really important.  These days it is difficult enough to find time together.   We have crazy schedules and a lot of demands on our time.  Sunday might be the perfect day to correct that .  And breakfast or brunch is great, because you can catch family before they get out! 

I have been posting other people’s muffin recipes.  I realize that I have some great ones myself.  So today, you are getting Lemon Raspberry.  I found this recipe a while back in a magazine called Bread Bonanza.  You know the ones in the check out aisle at the grocery store?  It’s a great recipe!

Lemon Raspberry Muffin IngredientsIngredients

\

2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 cup half and half(see note)

1/2 cup canola oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice(see note)

1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries(see note)

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the floor, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Mixing Dry ingredients for Muffins

In another bowl, combine the  eggs, half and half, oil, and lemon juice.

Wet Ingredients for muffins

Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fold in raspberries.

Folding Raspberries Into Muffin Batter

Fill greased muffin cups two thirds full.

Filled muffin tin

Bake at 400 degrees for 22 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan to a wire rack.  Serve warm.  

This will give you about a dozen muffins.

Note:

  • I use fat free half and half.  Hey!  You have to cut the cholesterol and calories somewhere.  This will not hurt at all.
  • I use lemon juice, but you can use 1 teaspoon of lemon extract if you have it.
  • I only buy raspberries of they are on sale.  Then I freeze them.  If you don’t have raspberries though, you can use frozen blueberries.

Enjoy!

      They are. I love the flavors. And they are so easy to make. I am going to post some more the next couple of weekends. I do muffins when I have meetings and want them to be on time. LOL Thanks!

        No problem. I am going to try the meet n greet posting today. I might have to tap into your knowledge. It seems somewhat confusing. We shall see.

    Reblogged this on Marcey's Table and commented:

    I am going over to a friends how for Sunday breakfast and I always bring something. The problem is that I was too lazy to go shopping yesterday. So what do you do? Especially if you want to have enough for six kids?

    I go into my freezer where I always have some kind of frozen fruit. Today it was raspberries. So I made 2 dozen raspberry lemon muffins and we are good to go!

    Enjoy your Sunday!
