FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Yes! You can use frozen raspberries, there is no need to defrost them just toss them in the batter.
If you are not a fan of glaze on top of muffins you can leave it off or sprinkle some decorators sugar on top of the muffins before they are baked.
Yes, I love white chocolate and raspberry together but semi-sweet, milk or even dark chocolate will work also. You can even use chocolate chunks if you want more chocolate in this recipe.
If you want more of a raspberry flavor you can add an extra ½ cup raspberries to the batter. You can also switch up the berries used in this recipe: blueberries, blackberries and strawberries all work!
Buttermilk adds moistness to homemade baked goods. I would normally suggest making your own buttermilk by adding a little vinegar or lemon juice but it doesn't really make a good substitute unless you are using half and half. So, just go with a whole milk if you have that instead.
