Raspberry Ragamuffins

As promised, the recipe for the raspberry ragamuffins I made to ring in 2015. While similar to the other muffin recipes I’ve shared, these include a sweet surprise in the center. I like to think of them as muffins with a few accessories normally reserved for scones, namely jam and clotted cream. But they’re not a muffin-scone hybrid, they’re unique unto themselves. And so, they are ragamuffins! (Plus I’m a fan of alliteration, as regular readers have probably realized).
