{raspberry streusel muffins}

July 17, 2012

Last weekend my 89 year old grandma came to visit from Berlin and even though she can’t walk very well anymore and our apartment is on the 4th floor, she was determined to climb the stairs to see our apartment.

Since my mom and brother came over to visit with us and my grandma as well, I prepared a little treat for all of us.

I love how moist the muffins turned out! Plus, they have the perfect sweetness! It was definitely not the last time I’ve made these yummies! ;)

I’m partying here! ♥

  16. I’d say you made your grandma’s trip up those stairs more than worth it!! I’m not the greatest baker, I have high altitude issues and it challenges me ;) But I still want to try your recipes cause they look sooooo good! I really love your photography and wish I could get photos half as good! I have the worst lighting and just can’t figure out how to make it work. If you ever want to post a little photography tutorial or two… I wouldn’t complain… *hint hint* :)

  17. I am so sold! It is raspberry season right now, and I am always looking for fun things to do with them — especially something that isn’t a dessert. I have to maintain a girlish figure after all! (hahaha) But they seriously look delish! And I just want you to know that I love your blog design. It feels clean and cheerful and lovely all at once. Well done! :)

  24. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe on Simple & Sweet Fridays. Your grandmother must have loved them!


  25. Ob my gosh, my favorite fruit is raspberry! I just love it. I love muffins and adding streusels on top is to die for. Hope you enjoyed your time with our Grandma! Gosh must of been exciting to have 3 generations all together! I’d give anything to be able to do that again, both are gone. So do enjoy, I know I keep saying it, only because I miss them so! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best — your attendance helped make the party fun!

    • Ohh, we really had a great time! We were planning for only a couple hours, having coffee and muffins, but we all ended up hanging out until late in the evening and made dinner together. :)
