Just took these out of the oven and couldn't wait to eat one! They smelled so good when they were baking! I think next time I will add a bit more cheese. I also realized with my first bite that I forgot the salt. Oopsie! Crucial, since my first thought was that they were a tad bland. Duh! (the salt will definitely take care of that!) I ended up making 9 muffins instead of 12. I sprayed the muffin pan with cooking spray and these popped right out.

These were delicious! I added chopped pecans to the batter.

I followed the recipe exactly as written and these are spectacular! They were very moist and none of the flavors overpowered the rest. I used paper muffin liners but the liners are hard to peel away from the muffin so next time I won't use those. I'll just grease the muffin tin by itself. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe...definitely a keeper!!
