Raisin Corn Muffins



We’re back in Michigan this weekend. A friend of ours got married this Saturday and we came to attend their wedding. As you can imagine, we had such a lovely time. It was great not only to be able to join our friends in their momentous occasion but it was also such a joy to see many familiar faces and hear familiar voices. I won’t forget what my 9 year old boy said when the plane touched down in Grand Rapids, “It’s great to be back in the place I was born.” Sounds strange and funny when it comes from a little boy but the sentiment is not just true to him but certainly for all of us. Because both our kids were born here, it will certainly be our home to come to wherever we may end up in the future.

Talking about home and something that makes you feel comfortably cozy, in terms of food this Raisin Corn Muffins embody that sentiment. Corn muffins are the kind of treats that my kids expect to find waiting for them in the dining table after they return home from school. They are moist and tasty and the addition of raisins certainly add sweetness and fruity deliciousness to these muffins. Make a batch for your family this weekend or anytime!

    We love corn muffins in my house. Although I put raisins in bran muffins, I haven't tried them in corn muffins – what a lovely idea!

      We love to use Raisins in the Philippines even in savory dishes as they do add that sweet dimension in any dish. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
