This is a great recipe. I followed MAGNIFICAT's advice and boiled the raisins, used applesauce and less oil, (all I had was cinnamon applesauce and that turned out fine,) less sugar, and added spices. These were perfect with the applesauce in place of oil--I can't imagine how greasy they'd be if I'd used the full amount of oil. Also, I just put in a few extra spices--I think I will use more next time--they just had a hint of spicy-ness with what I had added. (I'm glad I added some spices.) Also, I added chopped pecans--YUM! I didn't mix the pineapple juice with the cream cheese, and I wish I had--or done something with the cream cheese--I was just trying to save some time. If you don't mix in the pineapple juice--you get pretty much what you'd expect--a lump of cream cheese in the middle of the muffin, (which is still good, but would be better thinned and sweetened by the pineapple juice.)
Also, I'm not a huge chunk-pineapple fan, but the muffins come out not tasting like pineapple, and the pineapple makes them sweet/moister, and gives it a nice texture. Great muffins! My husband and I love them.
