Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

These muffins are perfect any time of the day. Not only are they good with a cup of coffee in the morning or tea in the afternoon, they are also a good breakfast muffin. And with oats, raisins and wholemeal flour, they are on the healthier end of the cake spectrum!

Because they contain wholemeal flour they do tend to dry out more quickly than some other muffins, but they are unlikely to be around long enough for that to become a problem…

Recipe

Ingredients

115g melted butter

150ml milk

2 eggs, beaten

125g SR flour

125g wholemeal plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

130g soft brown sugar

30g porridge oats

170g raisins

To finish

1 tablespoon porridge oats

Method

Heat the oven to 180ºC. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.

Mix together the butter, milk and eggs.

Sieve together the flours, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and ground cinnamon into a bowl. Add the sugar and oats and mix well.

Stir in the wet ingredients but do not overwork. Fold in the raisins.

Divide the mixture between the muffin cases and sprinkle over the extra oats.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Leave to cool for a few minutes in the tin and then remove to a cooling rack.

  1. These look lovely 🙂 cinnamon & raisin are fab together!

  2. Looks very good! Did you use cassia cinnamon or true Ceylon cinnamon? I’ve written a post about the differences that you might be interested in reading.
