Absolutely wonderful flavor! A must try for all of you.
I make these muffins for my husband. He has 2 every morning with his coffee. They're the BEST muffins!!!
These muffins have a very nice moist texture, but the taste was only good not great). And, if I'm going to go to the extra work of brewing strong coffee and adding a sprinkle topping PLUS glaze, the end result needs to be excellent to make the extra work worthwhile. Too much work for me for the end result. A couple of my children also thought that there was too much coffee taste (though I have a cappucino muffin recipe with just as much coffee that they like) or that it'd be better without raisins.
