 Ingredients List

  • 1 Box (15-oz) Raisin Bran
  • 3 c Sugar
  • 5 c Flour
  • 5 ts Baking soda
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 1 1/2 ts Cloves
  • 2 ts Nutmeg
  • 3 ts Cinnamon
  • 4 Eggs; beaten
  • 1 c Oil

  • 3 pk Dried fruit bits
  • 2 c Nuts; chopped (I use
  • -walnuts


12 Thai Chiles; finely minced
2 Fresh Jalapenos; sliced
4 Orange Habaneros; sliced

This is the recipe that I ripped off from my mother that I have made in the
past. Unfortunately, being a CHILE HEAD, I wanted a bit more spices than
just the cinnamon and cloves in it, so I made a few additions! Use all
fresh chiles! Mince them up real good. Slice the jalapenos and habaneros
into rings. Mix the Thai chiles with the muffin ingredients below. After
spooning into muffin cups, place a slice of jalapeno or habanero on top of
each muffin. You can label them "green for sissies" if you like.

Simmer the fruit in water until very soft and they have absorbed all the
juice they are going to (about 15-20 minutes). Drain. Mix dry ingredients
in a BIG bowl or pan. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Spoon into
muffin tins lined with paper cupcake papers about 2/3 full. Bake at 400
degrees for 20 minutes if using miniature muffin tins, reduce baking
time to 15 minutes. (You would really be bonkers to try the miniature ones,
it would make about 3 bezillion!)

These really aren't hot, they just have a pleasant zing to them. Really!
Until you hit the "ring of fire", that is.... (or does the "ring of fire"

For the really initiated, I would suggest serving these with a drop or two
of Daves Insanity or Endorphin Rush, just to get the day started with a
