Adjusted from Williams Sonoma collection recipe...a very nice spiced muffin. If you love cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice you will love these muffins. I love them with a fresh brewed cup of coffee or tea.

These were very good. I didn't add the currants. The aroma from the spices was wonderful and the family loved them.

I used the full recipe to make 6 jumbo muffins for a friend who "likes'em big". I haven't eaten one of the finished muffins as they aren't staying with me but the batter was to die for (when the muffins, cake or whatever is in the oven I become a spoon licker...oh the shame, lol). I do however have 5 stars from the recipient. I added raisins and used 1 1/2 cups of 2% milk with no cream. They make the house small like Christmas! What a delight :D

Made these for KK's Forum Mini Cookathon exactly as the recipe called for and w/o the currants. While these were baking my house took on the fragrance of all those wonderful spices, and then when the came out of the oven I ate one hot with butter on it. OMG these were wonderful, and I will enjoy having these for breakfast. I think these would be great with some craisins in them instead of the currants and next time will add some to really zing things up. Thank you for a great recipe.
