I saw this recipe on America's Test Kitchen(I love that show for some reason) the muffins looks so good,I decided to make them,I tweaked it a little by adding raisins to the batter.Sometimes I make these without the topping and put a bit of batter in the pan,add a teaspoon of jelly,then cover the jelly with more batter.
