Lemon and Raspberry Muffins with Streusel Topping

Lemon and Raspberry Muffins with Streusel Topping

We’re back! I wanted to make a tasty breakfast for my kids this morning to make up for the 9-hour car ride home yesterday. I decided fresh muffins (their favorite) would hit the spot. I love raspberry and lemon together and decided they would make a perfect breakfast muffin. I added streusel topping to make it extra special and oh my… these were unbelievably good. A perfect combination of sweet and tart – absolutely delicious.

Lemon and Raspberry Muffins with Streusel Topping:


  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup of milk

  • Juice from 1 lemon

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 2 eggs

  • Zest from 1 lemon, chopped finely

  • 8 oz fresh raspberries

How to Make Lemon and Raspberry Muffins with Streusel Topping

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; blend well.

In another bowl, combine melted butter, milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla, and eggs; mix thoroughly. Slowly stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until well blended.

Add the raspberries and mix slowly and carefully. Spoon batter evenly into greased muffin tins.

Streusel Topping:

  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour

Combine all ingredients with fingers until flaky and crumbly.

Top each muffin with streusel topping. Bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes or until lightly browned (don’t overbake).

On a side note:

It was a long and very busy week visiting friends and family. My 20-year reunion was amazing–it was wonderful to catch up with all the people I grew up with. The time flew by quickly and it was hard to say goodbye.
