MoM - Sugar-crusted Raspberry Muffins

I love to make muffins! They are one of my favorite things to bake and there is an endless list of recipes out there. One of the blogs I read does a segment called "Muffin Tin Monday" - it's a cute creative way to get kids to eat. While making muffins last week this idea dawned on me - Muffins on Monday!

I thought I'd spill that over to the blog - since no one reads it now maybe someone will stumble across me when g00gling muffin recipes.

Here's the first recipe - I hope to add a new one each Monday!

Sugar-crusted Raspberry Muffins - yield 12 muffins. We loved these last year and I can't wait until our raspberries are red so we can make them again this year!

2 cups Flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup whole milk
1 large egg
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries

Heat oven to 400`

Line muffin tin with paper liners, or grease.

In a medium bowl, combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the baking powder and the salt. Add the butter and combine.
In a second bowl whisk together the milk, egg and vanilla.
Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined, the batter will be lumpy.
Toss the berries with the remaining flour an gently fold into the batter.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

Bake 17-20 minutes

*Disclaimer - this is not my recipe, I found it when googling for muffin recipes myself!

I made the cut!

One of my blogs listed under that Funny $hit catagory is this one. I now notice vanity plates more than ever - which isn't saying much in NH since they are EVERYWHERE!!!

The other day I drove by a plate that I thought was good enough, I actually went home to get my camera and drove back by! I'm excited to say I made the cut! Check out my find here.
