What you will need to make this recipe

Perfecting Muffins with the Right Ingredients

Gluten Free Flour- The perfect gluten free flour blend I used is Bod Red’s Mill one to one cup gluten free flour. Gluten Free Flour Blend

Raspberries- Using fresh raspberries in my recipes is something I always aim for, emphasizing the importance of fresh ingredients to enhance flavors. 

Unsalted Butter- The secret behind the muffins’ great flavor and their soft, tender, and moist texture? Unsalted butter, especially when served warm. Although some might consider using vegetable oil to maintain moisture without needing to warm them up, the outcome will differ significantly from using butter.

For those looking to perfect their streusel topping, cold butter is essential for achieving the best results. Should you choose to use melted butter, take care to melt it well in advance. This precaution ensures it cools down sufficiently, avoiding any risk of prematurely cooking the eggs upon mixing.

Vanilla Extract- Adding vanilla extract into the mix elevates the aroma, making the whisking process a truly heavenly experience. I used Vanilla Bean Paste.

How to make Gluten Free Raspberry Muffins

Step 1- In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.

Step 2- In a separate medium bowl, combine the wet ingredients.

Step 3- Zest the orange into the wet ingredients and mix to combine.

Step 4- Fold the egg mixture into the flour mixture, stirring just until combined.

Step 5- Fold in the raspberries. Avoid over mixing the raspberries as they might end up breaking in your mixture.

Step 6- Add the muffin batter to either a lined or buttered muffin tin, I used both.

Step 7- Make the streusel by cutting the butter into flour mixture with a pie blender or pastry blender cutter measuring at least 1.5mm, mix well until all incorporated.

Step 8- Top the muffins with the streusel and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top and the toothpick is dry.

Pro Tips for Mastering This Recipe

  • If you are using frozen raspberries in place of fresh, there is no need to thaw them.
  • Accurate flour measurement is crucial; too much flour can result in dense muffins. Utilize a scale for precise measurements or fluff the flour with a spoon, then level it off with a knife.
  • If skipping paper liners, ensure thorough buttering and flouring of the muffin tin wells.
  • To Check if the muffins are ready, insert a knife or a toothpick into the center of one muffin, and if it comes out dry and clean, they have finished baking.
  •  To ensure the muffins are perfectly baked, simply insert a toothpick into the center of one; if it emerges clean without any batter residue, they’re good to go.
  • Opt for real vanilla extract for an authentic flavor kick.
  • When using frozen raspberries instead of fresh, there’s no need to thaw them beforehand.
  • These muffins toe the line between muffins and cupcakes, offering a tender, cake-like texture. For a cupcake twist, skip the streusel and consider topping them with my luscious Italian Buttercream flavored with a raspberry reduction for an exquisite treat.
  • Store in airtight container after cooling for up to 3 days if made with oil, if made with butter store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • For a savory, exquisite taste warm-up your muffin in an oven toaster for 10-15 minutes.
  • Allow your raspberry muffins to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing them from the tin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I change the berry?

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to put your own twist on these delectable muffins, go ahead and experiment with a variety of berries to suit your taste buds. Consider incorporating blueberries, blackberries, or even diced strawberries for a vibrant burst of flavor. For a more daring approach, why not divide the batter and introduce different berries to each half—creating a medley of berry goodness in every bite!

Can I change to a different gluten free flour brand?

The result might not be the same, as each gluten free flour brand have a different scale measurement and ingredients.

Can I use a different butter brand?

Feel free to use any unsalted butter brand, I personally like this brand because it’s creamier.

What does it mean to “cut in the butter”?

“Cutting in butter” entails blending cold butter into the dry ingredients to create a crumbly mixture with small butter pieces distributed throughout. Use a pastry blender, forks, or your fingers to achieve this texture, ensuring the butter remains distinct from the flour. Proper incorporation of butter ensures a perfect streusel topping that holds its shape during baking.

Can I freeze these muffins?

Yes, these muffins can be stored in the freezer, by freezing them on a tray until fully frozen, then transfer them to a freezer bag, or simply store them in a 13×9 Pyrex container. Press the air out from the freezer bag and store for up to two months. When you are ready to enjoy them, just thaw them overnight in the fridge and warm up in the microwave or oven toaster.

  • My favorite Gluten Free flour to use is Bob’s Red Mill one to one cup baking flour.
    To keep that bright, buttery and fluffy color, I used but if you prefer to use brown sugar, it will change the color of your muffin.
    I used in this recipe lactose free milk, but you can substitute with dairy milk, almond milk or coconut milk.
    Preferably room temperature eggs, it helps with the texture of your muffin and creates a moist center.
    Fresh or frozen, I prefer using fresh raspberries.
    I am not using this baking soda because I want my muffins to look nice and light.
    Use melted butter for added moistness and flavor but you can substitute with olive oil or any other oil of your choice, or you can do 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup butter.
    Adding orange zest and juice to your raspberry muffins adds a bright, citrusy flavor that complements the sweetness of the raspberries perfectly.
