Number of Servings: 12


    1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/2 cup brown sugar, not packed
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon soda
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 egg, large
    2 tablespoons oil
    1/2 cup raisins or currants


Makes 12 standard sized muffins.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease one standard size muffin tin thoroughly. Mix all dry ingredients, including brown sugar, in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix buttermilk, egg & oil. Make a well in the dry ingredients. Pour in wet ingredients and raisins. Stir quickly and lightly until just mixed, then immediately scoop into muffin tins. Pop into preheated oven. Bake until medium brown on top, toothpick comes out clean, they should spring back from a gentle touch.

Can be eaten plain, or split with butter. Kids love them (if they like raisins :) ).

    These sound good. If I don't have buttermilk, may I use regular milk? - 8/14/11

  • these are perfect. I did add just a pinch more sweetener. Then I had an apple that had gotten a little soft so I chunked it up into small pieces and threw that in there too. Thank you for sharing your family recipe. - 2/5/11

  • These are perfect, soft and not gritty as some full whole wheat muffins. I sifted the dry ingredients then combined. The raisins are great, might sub in blueberries next time. Thanks for posting! - 4/21/10

  • I made mine with a tsp of vanilla. They taste a bit salty and need something more to sweeten them. Next time, I think I'll try adding in some applesauce and a bit more sugar. I know it will alter the calories, but heck I just can't eat them how they are now! They're good w/ a touch of honey butter. - 9/27/07

    Ah, you see, my mother used to make these so they're the hight of comfort food for me. They're sweet for traditional muffins, but not in comparison with what you find in coffee shops. And they're definitely whole-wheaty flavored.
