Recipe by Barefoot Beachcomber
Adopted recipe. The ginger is very nice. Tasty but not too sweet (add some sugar if you like your muffins sweeter). Makes a large recipe but they freeze well (or you can make one third of the recipe to get just one dozen muffins).
- 3⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup molasses
- 3 cups white flour
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ginger
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 3⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup raisins
- 2 1⁄4 cups skim milk
- 2 beaten eggs
