6.Bake for 35-40 min or until toothpick comes out clean (mine only took about 33 min so watch them around that time)

* I have another recipe for the Mimi's cafe bread on my blog already that I posted back in April of 2011 I tried this one out for the muffins and think that its a much better choice. I think that they tasted even better on day 2 after they sat in a plastic ziplock overnight they were so moist and flavorful. This is the go to recipe for the Carrot Raisin Nut bread or muffins. I give them a 5
