These muffins are my husband's favorite year-round. He likes them warm and topped with cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. I like them because they're easy to make and they freeze beautifully.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in sour cream and molasses. Combine 2 cups flour, baking soda, ginger, allspice and cinnamon; add to creamed mixture just until moistened. Toss the raisins with the remaining flour; stir into batter.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
