Mimi's Raspberry and Lemon Muffins With Streusel Topping

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This was given to me by my daughter several years ago and has been an A+++++ favorite of ours. It has a hint of lemon and chocked full of raspberries. The streusel topping just makes the whole thing come together as a super, yummy muffin.

I agree with all of the other reviewers - these are excellent! I followed the recipe almost exactly, I only subbed fresh raspberries for frozen. They can out perfectly and are very yummy. Next time, I might add a tsp. of lemon extract, as I love the lemon flavour and I thought these could use a little more of it. Other than that, perfection! Thanks Mimi :).
