It’s almost spring and we’ll soon be graced with sunny days. As the weather promises to get above 60 in the next few weeks, we might just have the chance to frolic in the grass shoeless, sipping on a tasty beverage, and dreaming about summer plans. Until that wonderful moment when we can throw our wool socks and boots deep into the back of our closets, we must create some sunshine in our lives. This recipe is one that I make anytime I need something special and fast, whether it’s just for me, or for someone else I care about.
These Raspberry Streusel Muffins are perfect for wintertime because they utilize frozen raspberries. White spelt flour gives them a moist tenderness, and while they won’t puff up high like their regular-white-flour cousins, the payoff is in the flavor and crumb.
