Sweet Potato Muffins


1 1/8 cups packed brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground allspice
½ teaspoon salt
4 cups peeled, shredded sweet potato
½ cup raisins
1 cup walnuts


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease muffin tins. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt and grated sweet potatoes. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour the egg mixture into the well and stir, gradually mixing together. Stir in the raisins and walnuts. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tins until each cup is ¾ full. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan immediately and serve warm.
