      These are definitely rich muffins! With all the spices I thought they might turn out really strong, but the flavor was just right. The icing is tasty but very sweet. The consistency is perfect though - it smooths out as soon as you spread it and quickly forms a crust and dries to a shiny finish. Thanks for posting!

      These are the best muffins I have made! They deserve the 5 stars and more! The topping makes it. I did not add the raisins nor the nuts. I made 6 jumbo muffins - probably smaller ones are better as they are rich. I would also probably up the spices a bit and maybe add some ground ginger too..but that is my personal preference my children aboslutely guzzled these.
