Moist, slightly spiced dark treacle muffiins. Once cooled, store them in an airtight container - they taste even better after a day or two.
These are delicious! I had to make a substitution as I've never even seen dry buttermilk powder in my area. I used the standard vinegar and milk mixture in place of the powdered milk and water. My muffins were done in 23 minutes and were a hit! I will make these again. - 31 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made three small changes. Instead of plain water, I used a half cup brewed unsweetened honey vanilla white chai and I added about a half teaspoon of dried lemon peel and a half teaspoon nutmeg. I did soak my raisins in the hot chai for about twenty minutes to plump them up. These took 20 minutes at 350* and wow, do they smell amazing! I will be making these again for sure, but when I do, I'll use my changes and either add double the raisins or add in a cup or so of Hershey's cinnamon chips. I'd add a little more liquid next time, too or bake a minute or two less. They were just a touch dry. The flavor? Amazing. Great recipe easily bendable for small personal changes. NOTE: I did use almost all organic ingredients. I think that helped the quality of the muffin immensely. - 29 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
After reading reviews, I went ahead and doubled the spices and added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. With those changes, these muffins had really good flavor. I love the healthy aspect of them, but the whole wheat flour gave them a feeling of dryness. I think next time I'll try adding a banana or some pumpkin. I did sub chocolate chips instead of raisins because my kids don't care for raisins. The chocolate was very good in these. - 24 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
