“Store batter in the refrigerator for up to six weeks. You can bake a fresh supply every day, if you like. Origin of recipe unknown; it was given to me by a friend many years ago. Very high sugar content (ie white sugar, brown sugar, molasses, raisins). I would caution persons with diabetes to monitor their glucose levels very carefully. Maximum enjoyment for diabetics = 1/4 muffin at a sitting.”
