This recipe produces 12 perfect muffins. The first time I made them with the zest of an orange and chocolate chips and the second time with 1/2 cup rolled oats and chocolate chips. I love this excellent versatile recipe.

Very good basic muffin recipe... I used dried cranberries and walnuts and they were delicious. Quite sweet, though and they rather reminded me more of cupcakes than muffins. I think I would also try cooking for less time at a higher temperature because I had a problem with the sides getting too dark before the tops browned. Not burnt, mind you, but getting a little too dark brown for comfort. I'd also try sprinkling the tops with some brown sugar. But overall, very easy, nice and tender and very good.

The recipe was wonderful... however I ignored your variation options because I wanted to make raspberry chocolate chip muffins from the beginning. But I did use the basic muffin part and they turned out wonderfully. Muchly recommended.
