I made these this morning using applesauce in place of the oil and reconstituted powder milk for the milk. I don't know if it was the applesauce substitution, the high amount of sweetener combined with dark muffin tins, but after 20 minutes the majority of the muffins were seriously burnt on the bottom. I did get 18 well rounded muffins from this recipe. I plan on making these again and lowering the temperature to 375 degrees.
These muffins turned out moist and delicious, with a very distinctive but subtle hint of rich molasses. Because I didn't have quite enough molasses, I substituted 1/2 molasses and 1/2 real maple syrup. I also used lowfat buttermilk instead of milk (I was looking to use up a container of buttermilk purchased for another recipe), and I threw in a handful of coarsely chopped walnuts. These baked for exactly 22 minutes at 400 degress...perfect! I can't wait to have a muffin with coffee tomorrow morning.
Excellent tasty muffin recipe!I mistakenly added just one cup of milk instead of 1 1/2 and they still turned out fine.I added a tsp of vanilla and omitted the salt.I also used 2 cups of whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose.This recipe made 12 full size muffins and 12 mini muffins.Delicious!
My mother used to make some muffins similar to these. Don't tell her, but I like these better... Thanks!
No wonder these 12 muffins have so many calories for a healthier muffin- they're huge! I made 24 minimuffins and 12 regular-sized muffins from this... next time I'll halve the recipe. Anyways, I made several substitutions- I used skim milk, applesauce instead of the oil,2 egg whites, and 1 cup whole-wheat flour. Guess what? These were still great! The weird thing was, I accidently burnt the minimuffins a little bit, yet the inside was so moist and yummy still. Weird.Anyways, highly reccomend this recipe- and halving it, if you, like me, are serving for only 2 people.
These are excellent! I made a double recipe with my 2.5 year old son yesterday, and everybody loves them except for husband who's really picky anyway. I love the flavour the molasses gives them, and the raisins add the perfect touch.
We just had warm muffin with out mid-morning cup of coffee....it is worth every one of these stars! Never again will I have any doubts about your recipes! This batter is thinner than the usual thick muffin batter, so I was hesitant about it. The muffins turned out light and fluffy, with a wonderful molasses flavor that wasn't overwhelming, even with that cup of molasses. Thanks for a great, healthy muffin!
