Vanilla powder is flavoring in a powder format without the alcohol that is in vanilla extract. It’s great for baking, when making ice cream, or simply sprinkling on top of your tea or coffee. Anytime you want a hit of vanilla without the liquid.

Very moist and tasty. I'm not sure If I did something wrong (I followed the directions exactly except for omitting the raisins), but the batter was more like biscuit dough, it was very thick. Otherwise, they were great and I will make them again.

Holy Hannah! Just made these with blueberries...they are incredible...doubled the recipe..(which will use your whole egg). Exactly 15 minutes..my 4 yr old helped me and we had a nice bonding time..They are soooo easy and amazing.

Absolutely delicious! More like a scone than a muffin; everyone loves them. I always make a double batch, yielding 12 muffins. I used vegetable oil and increased the amount of raisins. Only need 15 minutes to bake & removed them from pan immediately.

This is a perfect recipe for a small family. We just love them! I find using egg beaters works best.

My husband loved these. I made exactly as instructed the first time. the second time around I did change slightly. I used light olive oil instead of canola oi, light sour creaml and splenda instead of sugar. They turned out just as good. As my husband says "this is a keeper".
