Happy Father’s Day


Happy Father’s Day to all the marvelous fathers out there! This recipe is dedicated to all of you but most of all, my dad. When I was little I had memories of him stashing some of mother’s muffins away in the freezer. Then when it was time for afternoon tea, he’d take a couple out, cut them in half, butter them, and toast them. They were just as good a couple days later. It used to always make me laugh but was so clever. He was a man with many tricks up his sleeve. Here’s to you dad!



  • 1 3/4 cups All Purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  •  (1 stick) melted butter
  • 1cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2cups fresh raspberries
  • 1`cup flour
  • 1cup sugar PLUS 1 TEASPOON OF CINNAMON (topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 400-degrees.  Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners or coat with cooking spray or butter.
  2. In a medium bowl combine dry ingredients, slowly adding melted butter.
  3. Gradually add milk, egg and vanilla and fold into batter until combined.  Mixture will be lumpy.
  4. Carefully fold in raspberries to mixture.
  5. Bake for 17-20 minutes or 10-12 minutes if you’re making mini-muffins.  Set aside and cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Dust sugar on top of muffins

      Substitute other berries such as blueberries, blackberries or strawberries.  Or combine all for mixed berry muffins
