Cinnamon Crunch Raspberry Muffins


I am sharing a recipe for Cinnamon Crunch Raspberry Muffins. This recipe is from the 2008 Milk Calendar. Next time I bake these muffins I would substitute the lemon juice in the topping for butter. It will make the muffins crunchy. 

I just came back from a nice vacation in Louisiana, Victoria, Whistler and Vancouver. We did a cross country trip from Louisiana to Victoria, BC with my husband flying the S92 helicopter. We had a very good time and the views were incredible.
