Your basic buttery poppy seed muffin -- with a twist! Succulent confections with mounds of oats, raisins, and poppy seeds.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1/4 cup poppy seeds
- 2 cups rolled oats
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 6 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
In a mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, nutmeg, sugar, and orange peel. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, margarine, and milk.
Stir flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just moist. Stir in raisins, poppy seeds, and oats; mix well. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan; fill muffin cups about 3/4 full.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.
