Reviews forRaisin Gingerbread Muffins
"yummy. Made these today for a 'trial run' for next month. Will be definately be making them, doubling or tripling recipe. Crunchy on outside, soft on inside. I didn't use golden raisins, just used regular, got 11 muffins, as i like them a little bigger."
"These have wonderful flavor, are a little crunchy on the outside but nice & moist inside."
