Raspberry Muffins

The children are fighting.  “How many have you had?”  “I’ve only had 2.”  Then they uncover the potential for the discrepancy: “Mom, how many have you had?”  This time – 3.  Usually – 0 (because they won’t share).  Who raised them??? 

This goes against everything that David is: it comes from a box.  It is the best kitchen hack for me right now.  I have tried other berry muffin recipes and I have (yet) to find a replacement to the box.  If you have one, save my marriage – send it!

  • 1 box (16.9 oz) Betty Crocker Wild Blueberry muffin and quick bread mix
  • 1 cup raspberries (note: I typically use frozen raspberries and break them into smaller pieces with the smooth side of a meat mallet/tenderizer so the smaller raspberry pieces are “everywhere” in the muffin)
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs

Follow the directions on the box, except you don’t use the can of blueberries.  Mix the muffin mix with the water, vegetable oil and eggs.  Once that it blended, pour in the cup of raspberries and fold them in gently.  Line your muffin pan with paper liners.  Scoop about ¼ cup of batter into each muffin cup. 

Bake at 425 (or 400 for dark or nonstick pans).  Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

This recipe will make 12 muffins (which means 4 per kid in our house – unless the mom sneaks one, or 3, to make it even).
