People rave over

People rave over these muffins, thank you. While making them over the holidays I was out of raisins, so I used craisins, and again everyone loved them, and was a nice change for those who don't like raisins.

This recipe is divine. I made it for the first time when I was living overseas in a culture that doesn't really have muffins. They went nuts for them. I even cut the sugar and they are still plenty sweet. I do the raisins and nuts or leave them out, depending on what I have and the audience I'm cooking for. Yum!
