Lemon Raspberry Streusel Muffins

If you’re in need of a little comfort right now, grab a whisk and whip up a batch of Lemon Raspberry Streusel Muffins. Now you can enjoy light and fluffy, bakery-style muffins at home. These delicious muffins are lightly flavored with lemon, chock-full of sweet raspberries, and topped with a crunchy, buttery streusel. Can you say YUM?!? All the BEST muffins have a crumb topping in my opinion. Dress them up with your favorite cupcake liners and watch as they bake up high and beautiful. Eat ’em for breakfast, brunch or even a snack! They’re also perfect for gifting. You can drop the first batch off at my house! I’m really good at taste testing.

Here’s all you’ll need: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, lemon yogurt, vegetable oil, lemon zest, raspberries, and butter.

Watch how easy this is! In a large bowl combine 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk it all up to combine. Flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt are added to a large bowl. #lemonraspberrymuffins #strueselmuffins #bakerymuffins #muffins #muffinrecipes #homemademuffins

Grab another bowl and add the eggs, yogurt, oil, and lemon zest. Mix well with a whisk until all the ingredients are fully combined. I needed two 6-oz yogurts (the single serving size) to make a full cup. The yogurt adds flavor but also keeps the muffins so moist. Not into lemon? Swap out with raspberry or even plain vanilla yogurt instead. Eggs, yogurt, oil, and lemon zest are mixed together in a second bowl. #muffins #muffinsfromscratch #lemonmuffins #raspberrymuffins #raspberrylemonmuffinsNext add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stir until the mixture is just moistened. Then fold in the raspberry pieces. I’ve made this recipe with both fresh and frozen raspberries and both ways are delicious. I thawed the frozen raspberries just enough to get them to break apart for mixing but if your raspberries are holding a lot of water I would suggest defrosting first. Strawberry chunks or even blueberries would be a perfect swap if you wanna shake things up a bit!

The dry ingredients are added to the wet ingredients and mixed to combine. The raspberries are then folded into the mixture. #muffins #homemademuffins #fromscratchmuffins #lemonraspberrystreuselmuffins #springbaking #springrecipes

Line a muffin pan with your prettiest cupcake liners because Lemon Raspberry Streusel Muffins deserve only the best! Do your cupcake liners ever get splotchy or greasy from baking? This can result from “well-loved” (frequently used) baking pans. The easy fix? Line each cavity of the pan with a thin layer of rice. Any rice will do the trick (white, born, instant, doesn’t matter). The rice in the pan absorbs the excess oil and leaves the liners pretty and grease-free. Divide the muffin batter evenly into 12 paper-lined muffin cups. A cookie scoop helps to keep this job nice and neat and also uniform.

Don’t you dare forget that yummy streusel topping! It’s my favorite part. Combine 1/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup of sugar in a small bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Full disclosure: I always start by cutting in the butter like a professional but I always finish by mixing it with my hands. I just feel like I have more control plus the heat from my hands warms the butter and makes mixing these ingredients a little bit easier.

Sprinkle a tablespoon of the butter mixture over each muffin and lightly press into the muffin top. Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
