RECIPE: Sweet Potato Muffins

1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 400°. Spray muffin pans with cooking spray or line the cups with paper liners.  Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. In another bowl, blend eggs, potato, and sugar. Add milk, oil, and spices; beat until smooth. Pour liquid mixture into dry ingredients. Mix just enough to blend. Stir in raisins. Divide the batter between muffin cups. As soon as muffins are in the oven, reduce heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.
