Although I'm particularly big on raisins, I stayed with the currants for this recipe & made it pretty much as written! The topping was some really drak brown sugar that I put together here at home, so there was a strong molasses flavor there, which we liked! These very tasty muffins are very easy to prepare & make for A GREAT BREAKFAST TREAT! [Made & reviewed for one of the Pick A Chef co-hosts]
