Cinnamon and Raisin Muffin


Cinnamon Raisin Muffin


Sunday morning, breakfast time!

For us, breakfast on sunday mornings is a precious thing and we never try to skip it. Even on our holidays, domestic or abroad, breakfast is one of the highlights of the day which lies ahead of us.

We always keep our breakfast as healthy as possible, at least we try to. Of course we always have fresh made products in which we try to minimize the addition of sugar and fat as much as possible (although this slips through the net sporadically, especially on holidays, but that’s a weakness everyone has now and then I guess).

This time I asked my husband what he would like to have for breakfast. Since he’s a flexible man he told me not to bother too much, just a sandwhich would do. Well, a sandwich can be tasty sometimes but since I was in the mood for something else, I prepared these muffins.

I’m going to call these muffins a kind of healthy-ish since there’s no butter and sugar added to the muffin batter itself. To get them sweet I prepared them with honey and raisins and to get them moisty I used sour creme and goundnut oil (or peanut oil). For an extra flavor I added some ground cinnamon. However (couldn’t resist it), the weakness of which I wrote about earlier came up in me and I put a crumble topping on it, the same topping I prepared for my applecrumble cheese cake pie. Less healthy but sooo delicious and a very good starter since we had a rather long run planned later in the morning!

I can tell you, when serving them, a big smile turned up on my husband’s face and he totally forgot the sandwich idea.
