If you like panettone, you will also like these muffins, rich in raisins and candied peels (I used orange and citron), with a spicy touch of ginger and cinnamon.
You can give them as a gift instead of cookies but remember to bake them the same day so they will be super soft.
250gr (1.1cup – 8.8oz) flour
130gr (0.6cup – 4.8oz) sugar
120gr (0.52cup – 4.2oz) butter, melted
100ml (0.4cup – 3.5oz) milk
2tsp baking powder
70gr (0.3cup – 2.4oz) raisins
70gr (0.3cup – 2.4oz) candied peels
1 pinch of salt
½ tsp cinnamon powder
½tsp ginger powder
Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar spices and salt.
In another bowl quickly mix butter, egg and milk.
Now pour in dried ingredients and finally add candied peels and raisins that you have already softened in warm water, drained and then dried with a cloth.
Spoon the mixture into a greased muffin tin (or use paper cups) and bake at 180°C (350F – gas mark 4) for 25-30 minutes.
