      This is my second review for these muffins. I have continued to make this my only muffin recipe. My last review was in 2007, and since then I have found a few things that are fun to try: I use 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk and then if the mixture was not wet enough, I simply added 1Tb of water or so until it got to the right consistency. I also subbed butter for the oil. For a topping, I had melted butter with cinnamon for some, and then others I topped with chocolate chips or carob chips. Rather than mix the various items (choc chips, etc...) in with the batter, i put them only on the top that way you can make a variety of muffins with one batch. If you need the choc chips or carob chips, or blueberries or whatever to be mixed in just use a toothpick to push them down into the muffin once it is spooned into the tin before baking. These are super delicious and the recipe could not be simpler.

      these muffins were a bit dense...could have used more milk and be careful not to over mix. I added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to the batter, and sprinkled demerara sugar and cinnamon on top, which gave a nice crunch.

      Very good muffin. I made these variations: I added 1/2 tsp. almond extract to liquid ingredients. Put 1/2 tsp. strawberry jam in center. Sprinkled the tops with sugar. Very tasty!!
