Rum and Raisin Muffins

Rum and Raisin Muffins The original recipe for these was a banana bread recipe that came to me by the way of my penpal Lesley. I've mentioned here before and we regularly swap recipes though this was probably one of my favourites. The first time I tried it out I did it as a loaf like it said using the chocolate variation suggested. While eating a slice, and enjoying it very much I might add, I realised that it was very similar to a muffin recipe with the whole mixing the combined wet ingredients into the dry ones so this was the nest thing I tried and I swear it made them taste even better. It was the first time I had tried the chocolate/banana combination in a cake and despite finding a multitude of other banana bread recipes since then and vowing to try them all, I know I never will. This is the one for me. Very simple and works every time. Every baker knows the joy that comes from a recipe like that.
