I make a recipe similar to this, only instead of shortening I use melted butter. I like to soak the raisins in hot apple juice or unsweetened chai to plump them a bit before I use them in this recipe. We love these muffins.
I added 2 eggs and a quarter cup of milk because it was too dense. I left out the clove (personal preference)The addition of the egg and milk thinned it nicely and made a delicious muffin. I also added an oat crumble topping before baking. Yum!
To strong in cloves and very dense muffin.
I was looking for a low-sugar muffin for my kids and these no sugar muffins are perfect. The raisins give them a bit of sweetness, but they are less sweet than your usual muffin. I used butter instead of shortening.
Yeah, yeah, I used my blend of apple pie spices, which doesn't include ginger, so I'll take any blame for the subtle flavor - although I don't know that I'd want more. These might be good with chopped apples in them. They aren't bad, just a little on the heavy side, moist. On the other hand, when asked, E, 15, said he wouldn't mind seeing them again - if I felt like making 'em. :? :)
Absolutely delicious! Moist too. Will definitely make again.
