These muffins are fabulous! My whole family loved them and they have become part of my regular muffin baking. Very easy and yes they really so taste like butter tarts. I have made them with and without the nuts. Try them, you won't be disappointed.
Meh, these were ok.
Thanks, HeleJean - Great Muffins! I just made these this morning for an art class my sister gives up here in the canyon. I followed the recipe step-by-step, making only those adjustments I normally do for baking at our 8,000-foot elevation. Oh, and I did use paper liners in the muffin pan rather than grease it. Everything went very well. The batter was very light and fluffy and there was just enough of it to fill the cups to the top. They puffed up slightly during baking, but did not for a mushroom-type top. I don't think they really need the corn syrup on top, but, though it makes things a tad sticky, it was good. I might try maple syrup instead sometime in the future.
Very tasty and easy! They really do taste like butter tarts and they work fine without the nuts or raisins. You don't need nearly that much corn syrup on the top.
I had all the ingredients on hand so I thought I'd check these muffins out. I may have cooked the raisin mixture too long or maybe I didn't cool it in the fridge long enough. In any event, my muffins didn't look anything like the picture here. When I added the mixture to the flour mixture, the batter was awfully thick. No problem, I used a soup spoon and put the muffin mixture in the pan. Baked them for the suggested time and although they don't look like the writer's pic, they tasted pretty darn good! I'll definitely make them again but will watch how long I heat the raisin mixture on the stove.
it was okay, too many raisins everywhere and the corn styrup just ran off the top of the muffins.
Very easy recipe!! The texture is incredibly soft and I love how the raisins give this natural sweetness to the flavour. and oh, I didn't use corn syrup and walnuts. but still, it turns out great!
I forgot to add the syrup when I made these and they still came out moist and delish! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
