We loved these! Ended up serving them with Sauteed Leeks and Apples' recipe #140524 and German Potato Dumplings' recipe #48050. The muffins weren't overly sweet and were a nice balance with the rest of the meal. Used golden raisins instead of regular raisins. Easy to throw together, no sifting, no fuss.
