"The muffins had a wonderful taste but I found the texture to be a bit doughy even after baking them longer and at a slightly higher temp (I know my oven) than the recipe called for. All in All a very good recipe and will make again."

"I love these! And I too would like to know the nutritional info. I am hoping they don't have too many calories... because they are delicious. My mom makes them in the silicone molds so no mess taking a paper off."

"My husband hates raisins, so I used the golden variety and chopped them up. We both really enjoyed the muffins and he even said he would eat them again, knowing the raisins are in there! I substituted plain yogurt for part of the sour cream as I only had about 1/4 cup sour cream on hand at the time and it turned out great. We used a mini muffin pan, so the baking time needed to be shortened to about 15 minutes."
