That’s all there is to these raspberry white chocolate cupcakes! They are very simple to make, but they sure are tasty! I particularly like that they aren’t too dense or rich – I don’t have a super sweet tooth so I often find cupcakes just a little too much for me. These ones though, right up my alley!

I love that you can use frozen raspberries in these cupcakes, it means they can be whipped up whenever the need arises! Sure, fresh raspberries are excellent for decoration, but inside the cupcakes you really won’t tell the difference. Either way they will be delicious, I promise!
