Gluten Free Fresh Raspberry Muffins
Fresh, organic raspberries are lovely. During the long awaited raspberry season, we love to eat them drowning in cream, scattered over waffles and stuffed into homemade, gluten free muffins. We bake our gluten free Fresh Raspberry Muffins in one of two ways: we tuck berries in the middle of muffins or thoroughly mix them in. You decide which way works best for your family.
Mad About Muffins
Several years ago I found a muffin recipe book at my local bookstore for sale. Author Dot Vartan published a sweet little book called Mad About Muffins (1998.) Her Fresh Raspberry Muffins recipe was a hit in our house back then, but is an even bigger hit now that we bake gluten free Fresh Raspberry Muffins with our Flour Farm flour. Simply delicious!

- 114g (4 oz) Fresh Raspberries (about 1 C)
- 180g (6.3 oz) Flour Farm Organic Gluten Free Flour Blend (1 2/3 C spoon & level)
- 1 1/2 tsp Double Acting, Aluminum Free Baking Powder (7g)
- 1/2 tsp Extra Fine Pink Himalayan Salt (3g)
- 20g (.7 oz) Turbinado (coarse) Cane Sugar (about 2 T)

Before You Dive In – Prep: Please read!
- Bring butter and egg to room temperature
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 C)
- Grease or line muffin wells (we like to use our non-stick baking Goop)
Step 1: Combine the half and half and vinegar in a liquid measuring cup. Set aside.
Step 2: In a large bowl, beat together the softened butter and sugar until well blended.
Step 3: In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
Step 4: In a small bowl, whisk together egg and vanilla. Add the egg mixture to the half and half mixture. Whisk until combined.
Step 5: Add the flour blend to the creamed butter and sugar. Mix with a heavy spoon or beat on low until combined. Stir in the combined egg mixture, or beat on low until ingredients are moistened.
Step 6: Two choices for adding raspberries – A) Fill middle of muffins with berries OR B) Fully integrate berries into the mix.
A) Fill prepared muffin wells with a heaping tablespoon of batter. Place raspberries in the middle (about 4-5) and then top with another heaping tablespoon of batter. Sprinkle tops with turbinado sugar, (optional.)
B) Gently fold raspberries into batter. Use a scoop or tablespoon to fill muffin wells 3/4 of the way full, (we use a blue #16, 2 oz scoop.) Sprinkle tops with turbinado sugar, (optional.)
Step 7: Place muffin pan in the center of a preheated 425 F/20 C oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven to 375 F/190 C and bake for another 8 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Tops of muffins should appear light golden brown.
Step 8: Remove pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack for about 5-10 minutes. Pop muffins out of wells and allow to continue cooling on the rack top side down – if you can wait that long!
Storing and Freezing: Muffins are best the day you bake them or the day after. Do avoid SUPER moist muffins, store on the counter in a container with a loose fitting lid. Freeze for up to a month.
