I picked up a new book called Perfect Muffins and Bakes today and couldn't wait to try out a recipe! I marked a bunch that sounded good and decided on the Potato Raisin Muffins. I've just recently made a batch of Savory Potato Muffins so I thought a sweet version would be an interesting contrast. They were definitely different but I'm not sure which I like better. They tasted a lot like the Sweet Potato muffins I made cuz of the texture and addition of dried fruit. I can't wait to try out some more recipes!
