  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a muffin pan, or use paper liners.
  2. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook 2/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice until golden brown. Stir in 2/3 cup water and remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar. Cook until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, 1/3 cup uncooked oats, baking powder and wheat germ. Whisk together egg and evaporated milk. Make a well in the center of flour mixture, and pour in egg mixture and cooked oatmeal. Mix just until combined. Dredge raisins in 1 tablespoon flour, then fold into batter. Spoon into muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

I love the carmelized idea. These muffins were tastey with a nicely puffed and toasted top. I also substituted soy milk. They were however a tad on the dry side and I wanted them a little swe...

I really liked this! I put in one apple, cored and sliced. I just made sure I coated the apple with flour. I also ended up using 3 packages of instant oatmeal (I realized too late it was all I ...

These are very good dense muffins, sure to fill you up! I wasn't about to open a can of evaporated milk to just use the one cup so I just grabbed the regular milk out of the fridge.Despite the f...
