Raspberry Cream Cheese Muffins – Moist cream cheese muffins bursting with fresh raspberries. Buttermilk makes these tender and delicious. Perfect for breakfast or dessert. Easy to freeze.
I’ve got quite a few raspberry recipes now. Do you think there’s a reason for that? I know there is. I’m obsessed!
I’ve been longing for raspberries for so long and now that they’re here in season I think about them A LOT. Hey, that’s not a bad thing!
It’s better than me thinking about clothes or gadgets or that trip to the beach that isn’t coming fast enough. At least I can do something about my raspberry obsession. It’s called dream and plan anything and everything to do with raspberries.
I’m just waiting now for the u-pick. Which is only a few days away. I’ll be up to my eyeballs in raspberries and happy as a girl with a handful of chocolate.
These muffins will not leave you disappointed. They’re tender, rich and satisfying.
The richness of the cream cheese combined with the red raspberries leaves you wanting another bite.
I know this post kind of goes on and on. But I simply had to show you all these delicious photos. I mean they’re so good they’re even photogenic. They cooperated so well. The stark contrast of red against white has them begging me for more pictures. It’s almost as if they’re sitting there cheesin’ a smile for one more.
See? I couldn’t help myself I just kept snapping. Oh, I have another obsession. Pictures. They’re so fun!
As soon I was done shooting I happily shoveled one of these into my mouth. I can’t remember which one but it was definitely more of a shove than a bite. I’m so ladylike sometimes. If I have to survive taking pictures of these for 30 minutes without a bite then I certainly deserve some shoveling.
This is a no judgment zone. You’re welcome to come and join me for some face shoveling too. (smile)
