Gluten-Free Pumpkin-Raisin Spice Muffins
Why I Love This Recipe
Years ago, I started baking for a loved-one who was gluten-intolerant. Most of the ready-baked gluten-free products available tasted like sawdust, so I started trying to create my own gluten-free formulations. I previously posted this at the Celiac.com website.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 ¼ Cups A.J.s Special Gluten-Free Baking mix (or your own favorite GF mix)
½ Cup Canned Pumpkin Puree
1 Large Egg
¼ Cup milk
2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice, more if you prefer (BE CAREFUL that it is made only of spices, as some anti-caking agents might contain grain products)
2 teaspoon Blackstrap or other dark molasses (be sure ingredients do not list caramel color, a possible danger)
2 teaspoon Honey
1 small handful of your favorite raisins
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix baking mix and spice together in a medium-size bowl; set aside. In another medium-size bowl, beat the egg; then add the milk; then add the sugar, molasses, and honey; then blend in the pumpkin. Slowly add in the baking mix/spice blend. This mix WILL be very stiff. It takes a strong hand to stir it. When evenly-blended, add raisins. Spoon into muffin pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on your oven. Makes 6 muffins.
