    What about mixing some raisons and bits of ham into the batter?

    Sorry, but I'm afraid no one at our house liked these. I was skeptical when it called for 1 cup of sugar; thought that was a little much, but since the other reviews were positive, I used the entire cup. They were just way too sweet for us. I used the muffin tin option rather than a baking pan. Made for Family Tree Name Game.
