I went from redneck car racing extravaganza yesterday (I cannot tell you how funny the whole thing was to me) to baking muffins, and they turned out pretty well. The recipe:

Coffee-spice muffins:

-1 cup coffee
-1 cup brown sugar
-11/2 cups chopped raisins (optional)
-1/3 cup butter or margarine
-1/2 tsp ground cloves
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tsp nutmeg
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp baking soda
-2 cups flour

Glaze (optional)
-1 cup confectioners sugar
-2-3 tsp grated lemon zest
-4-5 tsp lemon juice

1. In a saucepan over medium high heat combine everything from the coffee down to the nutmeg. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Set aside to cool.

2. While cooling, combine glaze ingredients and set aside.

3. When coffee mixture is cool, add salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour. Mix well.

4. Fill paper-lined muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

5. When cool, drizzle with glaze.

These are so good.
