Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup  golden raisins or dried currants
  • 2 cups  all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup  toasted wheat germ
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon  baking soda

1. Lightly coat twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside. In a small bowl pour boiling water over raisins to cover; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Make a well in the center of flour mixture.

3. In a small bowl combine the egg, buttermilk, brown sugar, and oil. Add the egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Drain raisins. Gently fold raisins and carrot into batter.
