Ingredients

Muffins

  • 4 ounces (1/2 package) cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¾ cup (142g or 1 1/2 sticks) salted butter, room temperature
  • cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups (192g) cake flour
  • 2 tablespoons (⅛ cup or 30g) buttermilk, room temperature
  • 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 6 ounces fresh raspberries, or 1 1/2 cups frozen (thawed and drained)

Crumb Topping

  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, cold
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • cup confectioners' sugar

Instructions

Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine cream cheese and butter until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  • Add sugar gradually and beat until lighter and fluffier.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with each addition.
  • Add in the vanilla.
  • Add the flour all at once and mix until just combined.
  • Add in buttermilk with mixer on low and mix until just incorporated.
  • Fold in the chocolate chunks and raspberries.
  • Remove bowl from stand mixer and scrape with a rubber spatula to get every last bit of ingredient incorporated.

Crumb Topping

  • Using a food processor, fork, or your hands (I prefer clean hands), combine the cold butter, flour, and confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Make sure the butter is broken down and no larger than a pea when you are done.

Assembly

  • Scoop approximately 1/4 cup batter into each lined muffin cup.
  • Top with the crumb topping.
  • Bake 34 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out with crumbs, but not wet batter.
