I have been making this recipe every month for 4 years. Tried and true. The only difference I make is double the seasoning of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves. Personally, 1/4 tsp is not enough. Secondly ALWAYS PLUMP YOUR RAISINS! There isn't much oil or fat in this, so plump the raisins to add moisture. While you are getting the recipe together, pour boiling water over your raisins just to cover. Once you are ready for them, drain the water and use the raisins. Trust me, the extra water helps keep them from being dry. Also, I have moved three times and each oven I use has required a different baking time for this recipe. Generally they are ready in 16-17 min.
Oh, and I only ever make these as mini muffins. Beware, the recipe will make about 3 dozen.
