Raspberry Muffins - Chocolate Chips

Raspberries: Howrah Fresh Fruit and Veg

Recipe: Raspberry Muffins

I’ve been using this recipe for about 30 years. Once upon a time, I worked for an accounting firm in St Kilda Road, Melbourne. My colleague used to arrive late to work practically every day. She would stop to buy coffee and raspberry muffins from the cafe in the laneway behind our office. But she didn’t bother to factor that time into the commute-equation.

One day, my friend asked the cafe owner for the recipe. Clearly, my friend didn’t seem like a person who was any threat to the cafe’s monopoly on raspberry muffins, because they handed over the recipe with a smile. And of course, she gave that recipe to me! I’ve adapted it a little to my own preferences over the years, but it’s basically vintage.
