  • Mix in 1/4 cup of the sour cream to the butter mixture, then half of the flour mixture and repeat with the rest of the sour cream and flour mixture. Do not over mix!
  • Gently fold in the raspberries with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin cups and top each muffin with 1 tablespoon of the Crumb Mix and a raspberry.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, on a middle rack, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Cool and enjoy!

Notes

These Raspberry Crumb Muffins were adapted from Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook, a restaurant based in New York. I've substituted the blueberries from the original recipe, for raspberries. I also added some grated lemon zest to both the crumb top mixture and the muffin batter
