Mom's Glazed Cinnamon Raisin Spiced Muffin Recipe

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

I love a great muffin don't you? Breakfast can be tricky sometimes. We don't always have time to eat a healthy breakfast with a busy lifestyle and I convinced myself this is the way to go when wanting to be on the edge. I grew up on these fresh flavors and really like the taste of this muffin. Mom could make this come together so quick, it's an easy fix for a sweet treat when your on the go, will at least make you smile on the way to work. Great time to eat that carb then burn it off you have all day, right? Go ahead and splurge for a change. Oh and by the way, don't like raisins?

Add chocolate chips you can adapt the way you like it!

1 3/4 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ginger

14 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon orange peel grated

3/4 cup sugar

1 extra large egg

3/4 cup milk

1/3 cup melted butter

1/2 cup raisins or chocolate chips

Optional: Chopped walnuts or pecans


powdered sugar


mascarpone cheese

Spray your muffin tins with cooking spray.

In a large bowl add all dry ingredients along with raisins and peel.

In another small bowl add all wet ingredients .

Blend the dry ingredients with the wet until moistened. Add to the prepared cupcake tins 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degree hot oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the middle is set or comes clean with a toothpick. Cool. Drizzle with glaze.

Note: to make make glaze take 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese and then add teaspoons of water or more a little at a time until a thickened glazed sugar is created.
