Print Recipe



  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk or 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2/3 cup oil I use extra light olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon zest 1 lemon
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh raspberries


  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


  • Preheat oven to 400*F. and line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In another large bowl combine eggs, buttermilk, oil, lemon juice, vanilla and lemon zest and whisk until well combined.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir just until combined (do not over-mix).
  • Gently fold in fresh raspberries.
  • Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter, place muffins in the oven and then REDUCE OVEN TEMPERATURE TO 375*F.
  • Bake at 375*F. for 18-20 minutes.
  • When the muffins have been baked, prepare glaze by simply whisking together the powdered sugar and lemon juice.
  • When the muffins are cool enough to hold, dip muffins in lemon glaze, then allow the glaze to set while the muffins finish cooling.


Preheating the oven to 400* before baking will help the muffins rise quickly and get a nice domed top. Be sure to reduce the baking temperature to 375* for the remainder of the baking period.
I made this recipe using fresh raspberries so I'm not sure how frozen raspberries would work. I do think fresh blueberries, small blackberries, or a combination of fresh berries would work in this recipe.
