It had been a while since I had picked/seen/eaten raspberries, so when I washed these all I could see were all those little hairs. Why do raspberries have those little hairs on them? I was tired of wondering so I googled. Apparently they are the remnants of pistils, the female portion of the flower, and they may help protect the fruit from insect damage. Good to know. I guess? Anyway, we think these muffins are really good, and I'm glad to have a good raspberry muffin recipe.
Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins
2 tsp lemon juice
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cups sugar
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups raspberries
Line muffin pans with paper liners or lightly grease.
Whisk lemon juice, milk, oil, and egg in a medium bowl until well combined.
Mix together flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, and white chocolate in a large bowl. Add the raspberries to the dry ingredients and gently stir to coat the berries in the flour mixture. Then gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.
Pour the mixture into the muffin tins about two-thirds full. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes in pan before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 15-18 muffins.
