ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Muffins
Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Muffins (print recipe)
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
3 T butter, melted
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups chocolate chips
24 to 36 fresh or frozen whole raspberries (about 2 small clamshells)
1. Preheat your oven to 400. Lightly grease (or line with cupcake papers) a 12-cup square or standard muffin pan.
2. Prepare the crumb topping by mixing the ingredients together until very moist and crumbly. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, milk, and eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour*, thickener, sugar, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips. Add the dry mixture to the liquid and stir until combined.
4. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Push three small or two large raspberries down into the top of the batter; they don't need to be covered by batter. Sprinkle with the crumb topping, using a slightly heaped tablespoon for each muffin.
5. Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, until they're golden brown and feel set when you touch them in the middle. Remove them from the oven, and let them stand for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
