  • * 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • * 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • * 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • * zest of 2 lemon
  • * 2 large egg, separated
  • * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • * 2 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • * 1.5 tablespoon baking powder
  • * 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • * 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • * 3 tablespoon poppy seed
  • * 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • * 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • * 1 cup fresh raspberry, rinsed and patted dry
  • * raw sugar for muffin top


  1. Begin by creaming the butter on low speed, then slowly add in the sugars.
  2. While adding sugars, also add the zest.
  3. Add egg yolks, then vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and poppy seeds.
  5. While continuing to mix on a low speed, slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet mixture.
  6. The mixture will be almost crumbly in texture.
  7. Once mixture begins to come together, add the yogurt, then the lemon juice.
  8. Remove mix from mixer, then beat the egg whites in a separate bowl on high until frothy and thick.
  9. Fold egg whites into mix with a spatula, then fold in raspberries.
  10. Line your jumbo muffin pan with jumbo sized liners, spray lightly with baking spray. Add muffin mix to each liner, they will be full almost to the top.
  11. Sprinkle with raw sugar
  12. Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees, then lower the temperature to 350 degrees and set the timer for about 25-30 minutes, depending on your oven. Once tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean, then they are done!
  13. Remove from oven and let cool just a bit.
  14. You can also remove the muffins from the pan after a few minutes and let cool on muffin racks.
  15. These are delicious served warm, either with a bit of butter spread on or even as is.
  16. They also taste just as good all the way cooled down, perfect for grabbing on the go for a snack or quick breakfast!
  17. Enjoy!
