Raspberry picking

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably already known that we were on a raspberry field a few days ago. We picked so many raspberries that I really wanted to make these lemon raspberry buns. And what can I say, they are so soft and fluffy that we just could not get enough of them.

Have you ever picked raspberries on a field? The best part is the nibbling  while picking. When I tasted these super sweet raspberries I knew directly I should prepare lemon raspberry buns. And this recipe came out:
