Scented Raisin Muffins
Why I Love This Recipe
From a book that I recently bought.
Ingredients You'll Need
225 g. Plain Flour (I use 70% OO Flour and 30% wheat starch)
1 tsp. (6 gr) Baking Yeast
120 g. Granulated White Sugar (Brown sugar is also ok, it adds more flavour)
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
1 small bag (6 gr) Vanillin
1/2 cup Raisin
2 Whole Eggs
1/2 cup Milk
100 g Butter
1/2 tsp. Salt
Preheat oven at 180°C (356 F)
Leave raisin in mild water for 15 minutes
Stir butter with sugar until well blended (it should became a cream).
Add eggs, cinnamon and vanillin;
In another bowl mix flour and yeast, then add salt, nutmeg and the raisins, dried with a napkin.
Add the wet compound in the flour mix, mix briefly and then pour in milk. Stir until well blended.
Pour the batter in a non-stick greased muffin pan. It should fill 10-12 liner.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Leave muffins in the pan for 5 minutes baking, then take the muffins out of the pan and leave them cool over a wire rack.
