A couple of years ago, I decided to search out the perfect pumpkin muffin. I Googled & got hundreds of hits. I printed out the ones that looked like winners & tried a few. When I got to this one, my search ended. These muffins are very rich & obviously not diet food! But they are one of my favorites & I hope you will enjoy them too. The original recipe called for walnuts & fewer raisins, but I adapted them to my tastes. I recently made this recipe using about 2/3s of the sugar & substituting fresh chopped cranberries for the raisins. It was really good that way too.
