Sorry, but these muffins came out really bland and I had a couple of problems with them. I've never sifted brown sugar before and I don't think I will try again and the taste of the muffin was very unappealing. I think there should have been some regular sugar added. I will say that they did smell good while they were cooking. Sorry.
