Maple Raisin Tea Biscuit Muffins with Maple Glaze

The taste of a sweet raisin tea biscuit with the consistency of a muffin. Top them with a simple icing sugar/maple extract glaze and you are ready to go !

These are a lovely accompaniment to a pot of earl gray tea. Spread with butter and a dollop of jam.




LET'S GET STARTED !

RECIPE:

WHAT YOU NEED

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1 large egg (room temperature)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup milk (full fat or 2% works fine)
1/4 melted unsalted butter
1/2 raisins

GLAZE
1/2 icing sugar (sifted)
1/4 teaspoon maple extract
2 teaspoons milk

MAKE IT

PREHEAT oven to 400F

LINE 12 muffin cups with paper liners

WHISK together first 4 ingredients and set aside
IN SEPARATE BOWL, whisk together egg, syrup, milk and butter

ADD WET ingredients to dry ingredients, stir until combined
STIR in raisins

FILL muffin cups 3/4 full

BAKE 15-18 minutes. Use toothpick in center to check for doneness. If it comes out sticky, back in they go for a little bit longer baking time.
