Excellent! This is a moist and flavorful muffin. I used all my batter to fill a dozen muffins, so they were big and beautiful. I did substitute diced candied ginger in place of raisins, and used sour cream in place of yogurt.
I have made this recipe at least 5 times already...I had joined a CSA (community supported agriculture) and was getting boxes of fruits and veggies delivered every week. After a while I had so many apples and pears I was running out of ideas and I didn't want to do a dessert that would just tempt my family to consume unwanted calories. These muffins made for a tasty breakfast idea with a great ginger and spice flavor! I used the pear flavored Chobani brand of Greek Yogurt instead of plain and diced up some candy ginger to add to the batter. With one batch I also used dried cranberries instead of raisins and I usually sprinkle a little sugar in the raw and cinnamon on top. Instead of cupcake sized pan, you could use the big muffin tins for meal sized muffins or minis for a snack size...Just some ideas to play around with!!!
These muffins are so tasty! The house smells of autumn as they bake. I plan to include some of these muffins in a large gift basket for a silent auction at our church. I'm certain whoever wins the bid for it will love these muffins. I made them without any changes. Yummy!
Love Them!!!Even KIDS love them. I was shocked.
