Instructions

  • Preheat oven – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line 12 medium muffins tins.
  • Combine dry ingredients – In a medium sized bowl sift together the flour, baking powder and the salt.
  • Mix butter and sugar – In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes. After the mixture is pale and fluffy, add the eggs one at a time mixing until they are incorporated into the batter. Whisk in the vanilla.
  • Finish the batter – Next, add half the flour to the batter and stir in gently. Then add the yogurt and mix in the remaining flour. Once it is all incorporated, and the raspberries and stir to combine.
  • Pour into tins and bake – Pour batter into your prepared muffins tins and bake anywhere from 15 – 18 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the center and when just a few crumbs come off, it is done. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for just a few minutes. Remove from pan after about 5 minutes and let it cool for a further few minutes. These can be served straight away. Will keep for a few days in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes and Baking Tips

  • Don’t over bake – That’s the absolute best advice I can give for these muffins.  When baked at just the right time, they are absolutely deliciously moist and perfect. 
  • Use a medium muffin sized tin like stated below – If you use the large sized ones, the muffins will be really flat.  Unless you decide to make less muffins.  If you do go with large, I would say you will only get eight. 
  • Keep the raspberries whole – I didn’t bother chopping the raspberries up for this recipe. However, if you prefer smaller pieces of fruit, roughly chop them before adding to the batter.

How Long Will These Muffins Last and How Can I store Them

  • At room temperature – You can only keep these at room temperature for about 2 days. Because they contain fresh berries they will start to go bad after that time.
  • In the fridge – They will keep in the fridge for about 3 – 4 days. It’s best to let them come to room temperature before serving.
  • Store in the freezer – Store in an airtight container or bag for up to a month.

  • Fresh raspberries – you can use frozen berries, just add them to the batter frozen.
