Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

I think the saddest part is that when talking about these muffins, all I could think of was Florian Bellanger from Cupcake Wars going “It has the conseestancy uf a moofeen.” Horrible phonetic variation- but I tried. Anywho- my muffins turned out pretty delicious. I had never made homemade muffins before. Cupcakes, sure. Cakes, sure. But muffins are different. Thicker. These were a great breakfast, though. I didn’t get quite enough cinnamon in these- I used 1 teaspoon (the recipe only called for a half a teaspoon) so I would add a little more.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4th teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (I suggest using about 2 tsp. I felt this didn’t have enough cinnamon.)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Cinnamon Sugar

Directions

  1. Grease 12 muffin cups
  2. Preheat oven to 400°
  3. Stir together the dry ingredients (except for raisins) in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the milk, egg, and cooking oil.
  5. Stir until all of the flour is mixed in- do not over mix.
  6. Fold in the raisins.
  7. Fill the muffin cups about 1/2-2/3 full with batter. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top before baking.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes.
