Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup molasses

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk

  • ½ cup water

  • ½ cup raisins

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners, or generously grease with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the molasses. Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and powdered buttermilk; stir into the molasses mixture alternately with the water. Mix just until blended. Fold in raisins. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups.

  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top of the muffins spring back when lightly pressed. Cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before removing to cooling racks.
