Raspberry and cardamon muffins with crumbles

These lovely and moist muffins filled with raspberries are inspired by the ones that I like to buy with my take away-coffee at Espresso House. They don’t look especially pretty but don’t be tricked. l love the idea of crumbles on top of a muffin, however I don’t like the big size of the original ones and I prefer more raspberries. So I decided to bake the muffins at home, using more raspberries and crumbles, and the result was amazing and is definitly my kind of muffins. The cardamon flavour is quite subtile and the tartness of the raspberries goes perfect with the sweet crumbles. Just make sure to have high paper cups so you’ll have enough space for all your crumbles.

    Raspberry and cardamon muffins with crumbles
    (makes 14 medium sized. Use high paper cups)

    130 gram butter, room temperatured
    200 ml caster sugar (of which half is vanilla infused)
    2 eggs
    100 ml milk
    180 gram flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp ground cardamon
    200 gram frozen unthawed raspberries

    50 gram caster sugar
    100 gram flour
    50 gram butter

    Place the sugar, butter and flour in a bowl. With the tips of your fingers rub the ingredients together until you have a crumbly mixture.

    In a bowl beat butter and sugar with an electric beater until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time while beating. Add milk. Combine the flour, cardamon and baking powder in a separate bowl and then fold into the egg/butter/sugar/milk bowl. Add the raspberries and combine. Spoon the batter into high paper cups, fill the cups to 2/3.

    Sprinkle the crumbles over the muffins and bake in 175 degrees C (convection oven) for 20-25 minutes, until a tooth pick comes out clean.

    They look delicious!!! I love raspberry muffins with crubles. I make these often in summer, but with brown sugar and without cardamon.

    Dagmar, these look lovely. I love the flavor combination of cardamom and raspberry – one to try as soon as raspberries are in season here!

    Hey, perhaps adding some cinnamon into the crumble would make it better, if its to your preference. :)

    I love anything with a crumble topping, and raspberry with cardamom is wonderful sounding. Can’t wait to make these.

    I recently discovered how much I like the flavors of cardamom and fruit, and I just happen to have a large bag of raspberries in the freezer from last summer. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
