Last night was not exactly one of my best sleeps… someone who will not be named, but who’s name begins with “H” and ends in “uckleberry”, couldn’t decide if he wanted to be on the bed, or off the bed, on the floor, or on the pile of dirty clothes we forgot to wash. It was too hot, he was too cold, he was so tired after his evening of chasing the croquet balls around the yard and stealing them mid game that he passed out on the car ride home from my folks. But then when it was actually time to sleep – oh, you have to be up at 4am for work, mawm hooman? Good luck with that!
Please tell me I’m not the only one didn’t get nearly enough sleep last night. Can we just have a muffin and try again?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sucker for this animal. I even woke up to hoist is 90 pound rear end onto the bed, because his poor achy hips were too much for him to hop up there. He knows that I am, and that is probably the worst part.
That combined with Ben being at work last night – and well, the dog had half of the hooman bed to himself! Nevermind that he has a perfectly killer memory foam dog bed to himself… I’ve taken a nap on that thing and it is magical!! (Note – I took a nap on it before he ever used it – and don’t ask why… I guess I just had to see if my $300 of dog bed was really going to be worth it)
So, here’s to all of us trying to get through today, hipster cold brew in hand. Grab a muffin. I can tell, you already deserve it.

- Cinnamon Raisin Muffins::
- 2 1/4 cup Flour
- 2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 Eggs
- 1 1/4 cups Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 cup Milk
- 1/4 cup Butter, melted and cooled
- 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
- 2 Tbsp Cinnamon
- 1 1/2 cup Raisins – I used golden and regular raisins
- 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 2 Tbsp Sugar
- 1/2 cup Flour
- 1/2 cup Chopped Pecans, optional
- 1/4 cup Butter, melted
- 1/3 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tsp Milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper wrappers, or heavily grease with non-stick spray.
In a small sauce pan, add in raisins. Cover with water, and bring to a simmer on the stove. Turn off the heat and allow them to plump and cool slightly while making the muffins.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In another bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla, milk, melted butter and vegetable oil whisking until smooth.
Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold to combine. Just before they are mixed completely, drain the raisins and add them to the mix. Stir together.
Prepare the streusel and allow the muffin batter to rest a few minutes.
In a bowl, combine the streusel ingredients and stir together until mixed completely and crumbles form. Use your fingers if needed.
Using a scoop or measuring cup, divide the batter into the muffin tin. Sprinkle the top of the muffins with the streusel crumble. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove the muffins from the muffin tin and set onto a rack to cool completely.
In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk for the glaze until smooth. Top onto cooled muffins.

These are a must make! Can’t wait to see you on Friday!
The perfect poppable size!!Love these 🙂
I’ve always said that I will not be that lady with a dog in my bed. Yet…she totally is in our bed. All the time. LOVE the streusel on these muffins!!
YESSSS, when they are so cute, it’s impossible not to let them cuddle!
Amen to Monday sleep deprivation (new baby here!). I’ll take 2 muffins;)
These look perfect! Just what I need to go with a big mug of coffee!
I did an ok job with training Syd not get in our bed…. Tobin on the other hand gets in ever single night and sleeps ON my feet. Then 5/7 nights Mads climbs in too… and sleeps horizontally, feet in my face, hair in Stevie’s face. I wish she would take notes from Syd.
These muffins though….. I want a dozen.
I hope you get some sleep tonight! Those muffins look like they can help anyone through anything! So delicious!
Yum!! I’ll take a muffin or two 🙂
I do need a muffin and I know I’m going to need one tomorrow too. I haven’t even gone to bed yet and I can already tell that I’m not going to get enough sleep!
Streusel muffins are always a good idea! I’ll take two!
Sleepless nights blow… hope you got some rest!
These muffins, tho. YES. All the YESSSS! Such a perfect treat.
I know my menagerie would love to wake up to a dozen of these gorgeous muffins!
One of our old girls is having a tough time with her back legs so I’m always lifting her where she wants to go, not an easy feat with an 70 lb dog. Usually we have at least 2 dogs and 2 cats in bed with us. It could be worse…we have 7 of them. 🙂
Anyway…your muffins look wonderful…I need to make them soon! I think they would be a big hit with the kids!
Thanks, Michelle!! But it’s impossible not to cuddle with those cute furry kids!!
These look absolutely delicious. Breakfast perfection!
I know what I want with my morning coffee…2 of these babies! These look so pretty and yummy!!
Spoken as the Dowager Countess…..”What is sleep?” I know not of what it is like to sleep through the night. Lol! These muffins would definitely make up for a poor night of sleep. Love the streusel on the muffin! Yum 😛
These look delicious! Wanted to try making them but was wondering how much sugar you add to the batter?
Yes sugar was left out of recipe. I am in middle of making so could you respond asap
Thankyou [email protected] email addfess
Some of the proportions felt a bit off to me, so I adjusted… You forgot to add the amount of sugar for the muffin batter. I don’t like things to be terribly sweet and I felt the streusel would compensate, so I added 1/2 cup, plus 1/4 cup maple syrup. I also added 1 T ground ginger and 1/4 cup chopped candied ginger and orange peel. They were sophisticated and delicious and got rave reviews!
Elizabeth, I am so pleased that you liked these! And I’m happy your adjustments met your tastes. Thanks for letting me know how they turned out!
Could you please revise the recipe with the amount of sugar needed in the batter? It’s missing in the original.
I ended up using 2/3c brown sugar in the batter and they’re perfect! Not too sweet so if you prefer more sweetness, go to 3/4. I also used all golden raisins and made adjustments for high altitude. 100 % would make again.
Oh thanks for the update Robyn!! I’ll make the adjustments!
Did anyone see a mention that this recipe will fill up 6 LARGE muffin cups?
How much sugar in the muffin mix???
These are great but what is the amount of sugar for the receipe? Thank you in advance.
I’m still not seeing how much sugar goes into the batter.
Hello! Love your recipe but hope you could give metric measurements as well! Not really used to using cups and the conversions sometimes make the recipe flop! Will try it tonight !:)
Elle, I don’t typically do metrics, so sorry! I hope the recipe still turns out well for you!!
where’s the sugar listed for in the muffins..am I totally missing it..it says in the directions to mix the eggs and sugar but there’s no sugar in the ingredients listed.
Oh goodness! Let me get it in there! Sorry, I must have been typing too fast! It’s 1 1/4 cups
The streusel proportions are way off…standard streusel recipes have about a Tbs of butter, instead of 4. It looks more like a dough than a crumble. I should’ve recognized that before I bothered making this recipe…
