A simple muffin with golden raisins. Personally, I would add cinnamon to the topping and leave out the raisins. Some nuts would be a nice addition too. From Everyday Food

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together remaining flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat remaining 4 tablespoons butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. Add eggs one at a time; beat after each addition until combined.
  6. Add flour mixture and buttermilk in alternating batches, beginning and ending with flour mixture; beat until just combined.
