Irish Muffins

I made these muffins the other day for my husband so we could have some nice warm muffins with our morning coffee. This muffin recipe is made very similar to my Irish Soda Bread recipe and I could just imagine my Irish Grandmother taking these muffins out of her wood burning oven and sitting down to have coffee with my Grandpa. I love how food brings back so many wonderful memories for us and how we can keep passing our good memories along to our family and friends.

Irish Muffins
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon sugar
2 cups golden raisins
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large egg
1 cup yogurt
1/2 cup buttermilk
6 tablespoons butter, melted
Sparkling Sugar for topping
In a mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and raisins.
In a mixing pitcher, mix the egg, yogurt,and buttermilk.
Pour the melted butter into the liquid mix and completely mix.
Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
Stir in the golden raisins.
Place the muffin papers in the muffin tins.
Fill each muffin paper 3/4 full. Top with Sparkling Sugar.
Bake the muffins at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and a tester comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Remove the muffins from the tin and cool on the rack.
I love to serve these with butter and Apricot Jam.

  1. These look delicious. Is 2 cups of raisins correct? That seems like way too many.

    1. Hi Charlotte,
      We like a raisin in every bite, so that is the measure that I used for the recipe. You could cut the raisin's back if it is to many for your family, we just like to bite into a nice raisin with the crumb. It is a great muffin and hope you enjoy it.Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great St. Patrick's day!

  2. These look delicious, and I love a recipe that doesn’t call for heavy equipment, but can just be stirred together. Thanks for sharing, I’m going to try these. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a muffin at breakfast, and I really need to remedy that.

  3. I printed that recipe right will make them soon! We've had some very cool mornings and these look like the perfect way to warm my kitchen. (:

  4. These look so good, Miz Helen. I made Irish Soda Bread Muffins this week, and I've been enjoying them very much. Your recipe sounds wonderful, as do all your recipes!

  5. Sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner party.
