Truly a superb muffin! I was a little worried that 1/2 cup of Amaretto would make this too "liqueur"-ish tasting, but it was wonderful. I wanted to make this non-dairy, so I subbed marg for the butter, and as a nice touch, almond milk for the 1/4 cup milk called for in the recipe. I had this for breakfast this morning with a nice cup of vanilla tea, a perfect start to my day! Thanks Holiday!

I am gluten-free and usually most recipes are easy to substitute with non-wheat fours (so long as xanthan gum is used). This is a decent recipe but didn't convert as nicely as some others I've used. I had to keep adding milk because it had the consistency of play dough. They came out okay but I wouldn't recommend it to the gluten-free set.

Excellent! I doubled the recipe for the Post New Year's Mass breakfast and they came out perfectly. A nice subtle taste. This is a keeper.
