Muffin Mania For After-School Snacks (NAPSA) - Parents and kids value the homemade touch of a muffin in a lunch box or after- school snack. Fortunately, muffins are so simple to make that you can invite the kids to get in on the action and turn muffin mania into a family affair. Kids can crack eggs, measure ingredients, stir, and fill the cups.
These muffins freeze well, too, so there's always something homemade. Simply pop one still frozen into a lunch sack and it will be ready to eat by the time recess rolls around. For after-school snacking, 20 or 30 seconds in the microwave will warm up a frozen muffin enough to brighten the day.
Heat oven to 400 F.
Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat together eggs and sugar. Add carrots, raisins, buttermilk and 1/3 cup melted butter. Mix well.
Add flour mixture. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups.
Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
Combine cream cheese and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Stir in powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Drizzle over muffins.
For Golden Raisin lovers, simply substitute Goldens in place of Natural Raisins.
