Hmm, not sure what was intended with the serving amount, but half a recipe yielded me 24 muffins, or 12 servings, using the submitter’s gauge. I did expect 12 cute little mini muffins and was surprised at the yield of 24 (with a little batter still left over). Keep in mind, then, that a full recipe’s 24 servings would give you at least 48 mini muffins. Moving on, I was too lazy to follow the beginning step of combining the first six ingredients, heating them, then waiting for the mixture to cool. So I used the “unconventional” method of creaming the (softened, not melted) butter and sugar, then alternately adding the water and the dry ingredients, which I combined. I’m so familiar with this method that I had to do a double take on the recipe, as I wondered how I missed the egg when I laid out my ingredients! There is none and the muffin did not suffer for it, so this would be a good recipe to make when you find yourself without eggs! I didn’t chop the raisins and found there was no need to. These are great little two-bite muffins. I appreciate their diminutive size and the fact they aren’t too sweet. The glaze gives them the little “sweet kick" they need. These are moist and delicious as is but given these are called SPICE muffins, I could easily see adding half again as much of both the cinnamon and the cloves – the spice factor is very delicate and mild.
