Great tasting muffins! I made them for hubby's work and they were gone in an instant. Will keep this one handy.

I'm not sure if I messed up, but these were very dense muffins and I didn't like that. The flavor was good, but they were not light and fluffy like I like my muffins. I might try again and see what I can do.

Like any good baker, I felt the need to change the recipe to my own liking. I was also out of butter. Instead, I used 1/3 cup margarine and 1/3 cup sour cream to replace the butter. The result was ultra moist and spectacular. Thanks for the recipe premise though.
