Irish Potato Muffins

Irish Potato Muffins are wonderful with coffee or as a snack anytime and you will never know they are made with mashed potatoes!  My family loves these potato muffins and the raisins, nuts and spices really add to the flavor of this great treat. This is the perfect muffin for St. Patrick’s Day!

Irish Potato Muffins are delicious

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 stick butter or margarine or 8 tablespoon or 1/2 cup, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes (You don’t have to use Irish Potatoes, any kind will do)
1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use walnuts)

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and set aside.  Cream butter, sugar, vanilla and egg with mixer.  Add the potatoes, your flour mixture and milk and continue mixing just until all ingredients are wet.  Fold in raisins and nuts with a spoon.  Spray a 12 cup muffin tin and fill almost to the top with the batter.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes until done in centers checking for doneness after 25 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.

Note:  I make a topping for these muffins that makes them even better if you drizzle it over the tops.

Topping:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3 to 4 tablespoon milk

Beat all ingredients together with a wire whisk.  Drizzle over muffins. (Add milk until consistency you like) Enjoy!

  1. I followed your directions but used Mace in place of nutmeg. This is a great recipe. I didn’t use the glaze in top, instead I made the mistake of sprinkling turbinado sugar on top before baking. This baked into a hard sugar shell that shattered when removing the muffins. Theyre perfect without a gopping, thank you for tgis recipe.5 stars
