Very Good! I did change a few things out of necessity. I used shortening and dairy-free margarine because my brother can't take any dairy. I didn't have any allspice, so in place of it I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ginger, and 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon, (I doubled the muffin recipe.) I used one extra egg because mine were small. Finally, I left out the raisins so they would appeal to more of the family. I only gave the recipe four stars because I changed it a lot, but I seriously love these muffins!

I added one chopped apple and used a jumbo muffin pan. These make good muffins to freeze!

These were excellent. They reminded me of spice cake. I did substitute pumpkin spice for the allspice.
