    Gerry's Note:

    Another family favorite from my mom's recipe collection. Has that lovely old fashioned taste that never fails to please. Moist and wonderful, makes for no leftovers at teas, coffee hour and bake sales. Great with or without the home made icing. The icing makes for over the top.

      Everything I wanted to say about these muffins is captured in Gerry's introductory comments. They really are old-fashioned, tasty and chock full of raisins. I made some with and without icing to make everyone happy. Thanks for sharing your mom's recipes. Classics like this one are nostalgic, delightful and comforting.
