Raisin muffins, spicy

Lightly oil the muffin tin and preheat oven to 200C. This recipe makes 12 muffins.

Put the first six ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until just mixed. Two-thirds fill the muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Time: 20 minutes

Comments: Variations

Use 2 tbs oil (not olive) instead of butter Use 1 cup milk with 1 tbs lemon juice stirred in instead of sour milk (may need an extra 1/4 cup flour to ensure mix is not too wet)

For Spicy Raisin & Oat muffins - add 1/2 cup rolled oats in place of 1/2 cup flour.

Mix is a wetter one than normal for muffins but if it looks too thin add some extra flour. It does not have to be a stiff mix to work well.
